I created a new paragraph style that was a copy of Body text, but with a different colour. I would like to use it highlight sections of my text that need more work. However, it is now the default style. So, whenever I create a new paragraph, it does not use Body text, but my Highlight style. There seems to be no way of changing what should be the default paragraph style.
