I have changed my main styles, using the Mac, to provide a plain typeface and nearly flat paragraphs, for use with writing in Markdown. This works nicely.

However, when I start a new document, it starts in default style, not body. Is there some way to override the default style, as I have done with the others?

I gather that this is done via formatting options - set as default style. I have done this multiple times and the old one keeps coming back. This may be an operator error but if so it is one that's easy to make ...

Thanks!

This is a great question. I have the same issue with SiOS. I've saved my preferred styles to a file on Dropbox and opened it with Scrivener (from w/in Dropbox). The styles appear to specifications. But, as you've noted, the default style always pops when I start a new doc.

It's tricky to find but easy ...

Format a paragraph as you like it. (Paintbrush}
Select Formatting Options.
Touch Set as Default Formatting.

And you're done :)
