How can I set the add text box font and color as a default setting so that each time I add a new text box, the same font, size and color show up? I tried to right click, but I am not seeing the option to "set as default" that I see on many of the help pages.

Which version of Acrobat are you using? What do you see in the menu when you right-click? There are different things that people call "text box", I assume you are talking about the "text box" annotation that you can find under Comments>Markup Tools
In order to find the menu item, you need to have the whole text box selected - you need to see the resize handles around the text box. When you now right-click, you should see the "Make current Properties Default" option.

I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro 11. The newest version. The only thing that I see when I right click is the following:cutcopydeleteselect alldeselect allarrangeedit usingI am using the "Add Text" feature that is listed under system tools for "Content Editing." In this window, I see the "format" section that allows me to change the font, size and color. The current default is "Minion Pro" 12 pt black left justified.I cannot utilize online help from within the program because I am getting an error message that reads: "Online Help content cannot be displayed. Verify you can launch your web browser and have access to the Internet." I am online and still cannot get the program to access online help.
It appears that I am able to choose add text and set the font, color and size to a default. I will use this tool instead of the "add text box" as I cannot find a way to set the text box font, color and size to a default for any new text boxes I create in Adobe Acrobat Pro 11.0. Thank you for your help.
This function does not create a text box, it creates true PDF text, and it does not have the "set as default" functionality.
The Add Text tool you use should keep the settings you've applied across multiple activations of the tool. You would only have to set the font and color one time when you open the document. Is your system behaving differently?
