Hi,

I would everything in my workbook to be in Times New Roman font, so I just select all cells and set the font to that. However, since the default font for Excel is Calibri, every times I cut a cell, the font of what's left behind is reverted back to Calibri.

I have tried to solve this by changing the default font for Excel in Excel Ribbon to Times New Roman, then restarting Excel. However it looks like the problem still exists.
I think what this option only does for you is make the font of a NEW workbook Times New Roman. WIth an existing workbook that was created before this change...tough luck??

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

You need to edit the Normal style in existing workbooks.
One line of Macro will do this in the active workbook:
ActiveWorkbook.Styles("Normal").Font.Name = "Times New Roman"
A macro could open each file in a folder, apply the change and save and close the file again.
