I'm using OmniOutliner 2 on the iPad; I have so many outlines but the same formatting issues on most of them.

I've read the Tutorials but the tutorials do not properly explain how Styles work and I think I may be styling my Outlines wrong. I would really appreciate a better tutorial on how to style my outlines.

The issue in a nutshell is this. My Outlines are all in same font at Size 15 but I have to copy and paste information from any external app into my Outline. When I do this, pasted document does not inherit the styles in my Outline. The pasted document usually has the formatting from the original document and I cannot get it to match formatting in my outline.

I've tried so many ideas including applying the default template over again but the formatting on the pasted document does not change at all. I don't want to delete the pasted document and retype them manually.

This is how I style all my Outlines: In Styles Tab, I select "whole document", set font size to 15, set font to Avenir Next Regular, set font colour to black. In Document Tab, I set Zoom to 150%

Is this the right way to style outlines?

In addition to the problems I have with copy and pasted information not inheriting my styles, I have problems with some outlines where I have not copied or pasted information; I notice that though the font is the same in these outlines, the font size varies from Size 12 to Size 15. I have reapplied the Default Template and then restyled the outline but the font size still varies. I want them all at Size 15.

Please help me fix the formatting issues.
