Sets the default text font size for new notes.

The value is inherited from Document settings, Text font.

This attribute allows a set of notes (e.g. Code Examples or Shopping List) to inherit a specific body text font size via a prototype.

$TextFontSize is easily overridden simply by selecting a font size from the Font palette.

IMPORTANT: Changes to this attribute affect only those notes with no current $Text. Once anything has been added to $Text, inheritance is broken. Thereafter $Text uses the relevant attribute settings as at the time the text was added; they are effectively 'baked' into the $Text. The only way to 'reset' text with the wrong $TextFontSize value is to select the text and use menu Format ▸ Style ▸ Standard Size.

The $TextFontSize for the current note - or $Text selection therein, can be set using Format menu ▸ Font menu ▸ Show Fonts and using the OS Fonts palette to select the desired font size.
