Let us choose default font/style for new Essential Graphics text
At the moment it default to Minion Pro, white colour.
Let us change this in prefences, including the option to set a default fill, stroke, background, shadow etc. I make a lot of captions using Essential Graphics templates, I know you can set a Master Style but then this needs to be brough into every project. Just let us select a Master Style as the global default.
Yes, this please. I thought I was being dim not being able to find the preference to do this. Right from my first couple of projects I've wanted this.

Please make this happen, there are a lot of small changes that would save a lot of time in the long run, this is definitely one of them.
Thank you for taking the time to submit this. We have an open story for this feature already. I cannot comment on if or when that might get done though. I'll add this suggestion to the open story as a +1.
For now, here is another possible workaround:
Font and other style attributes are sticky per Graphic, per Sequence and per Project (in the same app session). So if you make some text, style it as you please, then the next text you will make will have that same look. This is not sticky across app session though.
So to have that text look easily available, consider making a Pr mogrt with the text looking the way you want, Then just apply that to the timeline from the EGP whenever you want new text looking like that. If you make your mogrt with a Master Text Style applied, that will get imported like media when you apply the mogrt from the EGP. So that will be available too without having to manually migrate the Master Text Style project item.
