Moved from Cloud forum.
Who the heck are you and why did you move my question?
John is a moderator and he moved your question to the InDesign forum so you'd get an answer more quickly. I have no idea why it was marked as correct.
As far as setting defaults, hyphenation is a paragraph level attribute, so it's always subject to being defined in a style, but you can set the default for new docs by making the changes with no files open.
Thank you! I appreciate you letting me know why my question was moved. Although I have looked for answers to other peoples’ questions, this is the first time I have asked a question of my own on the forum, so I didn’t really know what I was doing.
Also, thank you for letting me know how to set the H&Js for new docs. I have done it within styles for specific documents, but wanted it to be an always thing (a little lazy).
