If you go to File > Document Setup, settings will be changed for the 
current document.
Once again, the designation "No Style" means the default style in the 
Preferences/Document Settings, which you can change. You also import 
styles from other documents as desired.
Regardless, it sounds like you need to make styles. Edit > Paragraph 
Styles will bring up a dialog to make as many styles as you like, then 
share them from one document to another.
You can apply a Style from the Properties palette as well.

Once you begin to develop a collection of settings and make your own 
styles in Scribus documents, you're going to find that this is no big issue.
