It comes with it's own defaults. It's just a very basic text editor.
If you're interested in fonts and margins use a word processor. Wordpad (comes with XP also) suffices. But even that doesn't have a memory for settings.
I have Windows XP on my computer. Can anyone tell me how to fix the left and right margins on Notepad (which comes with Windows XP) so that I can get those same margins and font that I choose every time I open Notepad? Thank you very much. user470
