How to Set the Defaults

Tip Difficulty Level: Novice

Microsoft Publisher 200 allows you to set defaults for all future shapes (not text boxes).

How This Tip Works

  1. Open Microsoft Publisher 2002 to your new publication.
  2. Using the object tool bar on the left of the screen draw your desired shape.
  3. Right click on your newly created object, and go to Format Object/Shape.
  4. Set all available formatting under this dialog. All items listed under Colors and Lines, Size, and Web can be set can be set as defaults for future objects in this particular publication.
  5. Once you have set your defaults, go to the Colors and Lines Tab and at the bottom is a check box to set "Default for New Objects." Be sure to check this box and click ok.
  6. All new objects that you draw will now have the formatting you specified in that Format Dialog.
