This works to change existing tasks but when you insert a new task the font type reverts to the default. How do you change the default so new inserted tasks are formatted as desired?

Unfortunately, from what I've researched to date, there is no global setting to accomplish this. However, I did find some good guidance here: Project 2010 - Global Font Selection.

It's 2014, and your post is still helping us. Microsoft has you to thank for making their product a less frustrating "thing" to work with. Thanks again!
