Well .. maybe make up a style, even if it doesnt have its final font
settings yet, when the new paragraphs are created from the first, or
from the default on the text frame, they will all be set to the style
you have selected. You can then go back and adjust the style's
attributes later on. Be aware that font settings you make in the
properties palette will currently be removed when you edit the
paragraphs in Story Editor, so customisation of formatting after styles
applied is the best way about that. Story Editor has had a new mockup
drawn and we are working on getting that done for 1.2.

Well.. there are various Scribus tutorials about.. the most recent being

There are more than a few words of wisdom in the current docs on
www.scribus.net under documentation, although this information is quite
out of date and is being worked on as I type.... to be released with 1.2
in a little while.
