Another stylesheet question
I went thru the stylesheet tutorial that David Park kindly made available. I was successful in making the new stylesheet he proposed. But I'd like to do something he didn't cover (that I could find). I'd like to simply change the size of the text in the "text" style (the cell type found in the little box at upper left in a notebook). I can reformat the text cell by cell but I'd like it to just use a proper text size to start with from default.nb. I've given up trying to do this in Options Inspector. I've looked thru it forever and can't find any way to change text size. And if I did, would that change what's in the default.nb stylesheet? So I did Format/ Edit Stylesheet, selected the text style, to modify, then changed it to a new size and color via the Format Menu and then *Save As* default.nb. Well, that didn't work -- Mathematica wouldn't even run on restart. I had to restore default.nb from my backup copy. Even though the Edit Stylesheet window says it is using inherited base definitions from default.nb, the file it makes is tiny and apparently leaves out items needed for Mathematica to run. So I'm missing the big picture -- can someone please tell me how to modify default.nb -- or make Mathematica use a different stylesheet on startup? Thanks.
