The default styles for the various object classes can be set in the document properties dialog or by using the Get styles command.

To set the default styles

  1. Open the dialog Document properties by selecting the Settings » Document Properties command or via the key combination CTRL+ALT+D.

  2. Open the Object styles tab.

  3. Click on the object class and set the corresponding style parameters.

To set the default style by capturing it from an object
