How to change default Annotation Font Size in Devonthink 3

I use the Annotation field a lot when reading PDF’s. The default font for my aging eyes is a bit too small and I would like to make it bigger. How do I do that. I can do it within the Application window, but don’t know how to set it as a default.
I looked at an earlier answer that said I should go to Application Support … and look for _Annotation , but such a file does not exist. (and that was for Devonthink Pro 2). I am sure this must be an easy fix, but not for me.

Many thanks.

Are you referring to using an Annotation file?

Thanks for responding
Yes. The file on the right side of the screen. Reminders/Finder Comments/Annotations*
It is the Annotations part I want to change.


The only possibility is to create your own template. You can access the templates folder via the Annotations pop-up menu in this inspector.

Thanks for your reply. But where is the Annotations pop-up menu? and I can not see any “templates folder” anywhere. Do you mean “Styles” under “Font” when I right click the Annotations box and get a menu. That lets me set Font, font size, and type (Bold, etc), and I can even save it. It seems to work for the pdf I am immediately working on, but does not carry over to other pdfs. Even when I name a style as ‘Default’ it does not carry over to other pdfs.
Maybe I can’t do what I am want, although it is not obvious why not.

Inside the inspector as mentioned:

Ah, yes. You live and learn. That will do the trick. Many thanks.

I don’t see that Annotations pop-up menu in the Inspector. Is it because I have the standard edition? The pop-up options I see are just for doing things with the text in the Annotations:

Click on the down arrow of Annotations.

Thank you! I was clicking inside the Annotations box. My aging eyes didn’t even see the arrow. Will pay closer attention to instruction next time!
