I use Google Docs for typing up a lot of work, and I like to type it up in Garamond. However when I add line-breaks sometimes Google Docs decides to revert to Arial 11pt (the default style for a new document, but not used anywhere in mine). Is there a way to stop it doing this?

Seems to be possible as of 2012.09.04, 13:50 GMT-6
Future new documents should then default to your settings for 'Normal Text'. Note you may also have to update the style settings for 'Title', 'Subtitle', and headings one through six, if you want them to match.
You may also be able to change default styling from the toolbar, by selecting some text, clicking where it says the name of the current style (usually 'Normal Text'), pointing at "Options", then clicking "Save as my default styles".
Not currently possible in the new Google Docs interface.
You can still, however, use the old Google Docs interface, where you can set a default font.
I don't know for sure if this will carry over to the new Google Docs interface. This feature is something they're apparently looking to re-add (relatively) soon.
