text box paragraph settings
On my slide master, I have a text box placeholder and the theme fonts are selected. I've set the text box to Do Not Autofit and the margins I want. All good so far.
I'm cutting and pasting text from a Word document into a brand new project on my local drive, but whether I paste using Use Destination Theme or Keep Text Only, the Paragraph formatting is 8pt Before, 4pt After and Multiple Linespacing of 1.15, which are not the settings I want. The placeholder on the slide master is NOT formatted this way; in fact, it doesn't even recognize my settings if I try to set them on the master. Where are these settings coming from? How do I override them?
I know I can use Format Painter, but that is very manually intensive and it's a major pain. There's no option on the right-click menu to Set as Text Default. Can someone tell me how to apply my Paragraph settings quickly and easily throughout my project? I don't even want to continue this project in Storyline if I have to manually format hundreds of paragraphs. Thank you.
