The only caveat is that there seems to be a bug in the Apple text system that if you start a document off with a bullet point/list item, the text is changed to Helvetica.

As such this behavior - default to Helvetica 12pt - has been driving me quietly mental for quite some time. Here's a simple and effective workaround that has made me slightly less quietly ebullient. I don't get out much. Here goes:
- Use Keyboard Maestro to set up a Bullet List keyboard shortcut
- Write text using your preferred font
- Execute keyboard shortcut
- Hit return and list make away in your non-Helvetica font
Hope that this proves useful to someone.
