applying default style

paste in some text - haw does one force the default style defined in DT preferences

A simple popup default like in Libre Office etc. is what I’m looking for.

You could create a Favorite style, apply it before pasting, then press Command-Option-Shift-V to Paste with Current Style.


Had created a default style. But find accessing it very counter-intuitive

Tedious and cumbersome. Select and click ‘default’ ( or even in a contextual menu) would be a worthwhile function. DT is obviously limited in easily formatting text.
