A couple of quick answers. There are two issues at play in what you
are observing (and so you are right that it is two questions!).
There ia a Notebook option, DefaultNewCellStyle, that specifies what
CellStyle a new cell will be.
DefaultNewCellStyle is a notebook option which specifies the default
style to use for new cells created in the notebook.
If you want to change the style that new cells in a notebook will be
just execute something like,
SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook, DefaultNewCellStyle -> "Text"]
in the notebook. Of course this can be set at the level of the stye
sheet so that any notebook that uses that style sheet will have a
particular DefaultNewCellStyle. I use this option to define a button
in a palette in A WorkLife FrameWork that toggles amongst several
styles. IF you are writing a report, for example, you want that
notebook to have DefaultNewCellStyle -> "Text", at least while you
are doing a lot of writing.
The second issue has to do with what happens when you are typing in a
cell and then hit a charriage return. Generally this causes you to
just go to a new line in that cell. But you can also set an option
that, when you hit a carriage return, will cause the notebook to
create a new cell of a particular type. Thisis what you are observing
for the JournalArticle style sheet. This is the case for Title
Author and Section cells. This makes sense because when you start
typing a JournalArticle you will want the top matter to have a
particular form. And when you start a new section you will want the
next cell to have a particular form, and so on.
Here is the style definition for the Title cell in the XXXX
stylesheet. From this you can see the options at work:
But, if you place your insertion point between cells in a
JournalArticle you will, once you start to type, create a Text cell.
If you want this to be different, then, for example, execute
SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook, DefaultNewCellStyle -> "Input"]
in that notebook and it will override the default "Text" cell setting
for that style sheet.
I hope that this helps...
