Perhaps there is a better way of doing things.

1. Create your new document (File->new->Custom)
2. Create a text box, fit to width
3. Double click inside the text box
4. Type your text then highlight it
5. Go to Properties->Text and set your font, font size, and other font
characteristics as needed.

One minute max

The beauty of things is that you can set your own defaults, so with no
document open, go to File->Preferences and set it up the way *you*
want to set it up. That way you wont have anything to complain about

You can even do that with an open document, but it apply only to that

Endless ways of skining a cat, keep at it.
