Do you have more than one primary font? I have to make these kinds of changes often for clients who use both a sans serif and a serif font & a simple Global Update will not work in that situation. I have found that the easiest solution is a "Report Formats" script run through Framescript. In fact, that script was the primary reason I purchased Framescript. But if you don't have Framescript & want a free solution, Shmuel's suggestion of isolating the styles you need to change in a separate doc & importing to the book is the method I used before I had Framescript.

In the Paragraph Designer, click the *Default Font* tab. 2. Choose *Commands > Set Window to As Is*. 3. Select *Family *Verdana and *Size *9 pt. 4. Choose *Commands > Global Update Options*. 5. Select *Default Font Properties Only* and *All Paragraphs and Catalog Entries*. 6. Click *Update*.
