You just resized the headline in an ad to 76 points (a size that’s not listed as a Preset in the Point Size popup menu in the Character palette). You open another layout (File >Open) and you’d like to make its 72 point headline the exact same size as in the first ad. Now what was that size? If you go to the Point Size Preset menu, 76 points is magically listed at the top of the Presets menu. The last point size you used (or selected) that’s not a Preset will always be listed at the top of the Presets menu. It will remain in the listing until you use or select type that’s another point size not listed in Presets, or until you Quit the application.
