How to change default text style/size for dimension tool in Layout

How do I change default text style/size for dimension tool in Layout? I know how to take the measurement and then change the text style manually-- but I’m looking for a way to make the font and size a default so I don’t have to change it for every dimension.

Select the Dimension tool and edit the Font size and other properties before you start placing dimensions. If you are going to use the same settings for eery project, make yourself a custom template with the text set the way you want it to show. Then you won’t have to do this every time you start a new file.

You’re welcome. Note that this same idea works for Labels, Text boxes and any of the LayOut drawing tools as well.
