Using OG, not Pro. Curious as to how I change my default font. Looked in Preferences, but didn't see anything. Checked the Help file, too. Thanks.

Option-click the Text Tool to inspect it, the font panel will appear, change the font to the desired one, click on the Selection Arrow and the default font will be set.

Hope that helps,

I read this post, but still am unable to change the default font. (12 pt. Helvetica keeps popping up - it's driving me nuts.) What/where is the "Selection Arrow" that is referred to in the preceding post?

Note: I could not find anything about setting default font in OmniGraffle help. That's an oversight on the part of the people who wrote the Help package.
I was searching for the same functionality.

The arrow is apparently the one that appears in the text box (left from the A).

Clicking on it did indeed the trick. But making default font choice easier might not be a bad idea. I was looking in the preferences myself.

I think that clicking on the background and then choosing the font size should change the default font.

Or UTFM so we can RTFM. :)

Here are the steps I'm following.

1. select arrow (selection tool)
2. hold down option
3. click text tool
4. nothing happens

Please help. I hate Helvetica.

Ok, so why is it when you ask a question, you figure out the answer two seconds after posting?

It seems all you have to do to set a new default font now is to create the font style you want, then click and hold down the mouse on the text tool. Select "Inspect Style" and presto, you have a new default font.
