I'm using excel for mac 2011 and sometimes when I cut and paste, excel will paste in a different font. I always want everything to be in Times New Roman font but no matter how hard I try sometimes Excel will paste in Cambria font irregardless of the fact that I cut in font Times New Roman and am pasting on a sheet which is Times New Roman. I would think this problem would be solved in the preferences. But the only think that mentions font in the preferences is 'General' and I have the font selected there as Times New Roman. As usual the Excel Help section is of no help because when you input 'font' nothing comes up.

Ok, I've made some progress on this issue. It seems to only happen when I cut from one workbook and paste to another. After I pace a widget will appear and when I click on that widget I get a drop down box and the default choice is 'use destination theme', but when I select 'keep formatting source' it returns to the Times New Roman Font. If I could figure out how to make 'keep formatting source' the default option I would have this problem solved.
