Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating global default type styles, part of Photoshop CS6 New Features.
Photoshop CS6 introduced custom paragraph and character styles.…And you can learn more about those in a previous movie.…Photoshop 13.1 allows you to save off Global Default Styles that will load with any, and all future documents.…So, we'll start inside this file which has a few paragraph and character styles inside of it.…To see them, I will go up to the Window menu, and choose Paragraph Styles which displays…a Paragraph Styles dialog box.…Now, there is only one text layer that currently isn't formatted.…
And I'm going to format it now just so you have a sense for how styles work, in case…you haven't applied them before. So, notice the words "in the air."…I'll go ahead and select the corresponding layer here inside the Layers panel.…Then I'll click Romance style in order to style that text.…Now, I'm going to switch over to the Character Styles panel, which allows you to style one…or more characters of text independently of the others.…I'll press the T key to switch to the Type tool.…And I'll double-click on the word air to select it, and then I'll click on Just blue.…

Q: This course was updated on 1/15/2013. What changed?
A: The course was revised to address the new Photoshop features and enhancements bundled with the Creative Cloud update released in December 2012. We added a second chapter to the course, detailing the new enhancements. We cover the Liquify and Blur Galleries, which now support Smart Objects; creating conditional actions; auto-naming merged layers; moving a point with the Pen tool on the fly; creating global default type styles; and copying CSS code from specialty layers. We also cover two improvements to the 3D package included with Photoshop Extended: enhanced 3D lighting with 32-bit color and the new default 3D image-based light. We also updated the exercise files with new files for Chapter 2 and added an introductory video to the beginning of Chapter 2 that outlines the improvements.
