You mean like a CSS file that every file subscribes to?

I've been asking it for years.

Now...that should work. but only within the file. When you make the
change, are you clicking "Update All" To do it book wide, you have to
copy that format to all of the other files in the book. Display the
book, highlight all the files in the book, then import the format
from the file in which you made the change.
