But that does not fix the problem of the font change (Baskerville). I want *my* choice of font throughout.

I think the best solution here is to rename the scopes of these settings in such a way as to neuter them. A minimal approach is to change "markup" in their names to "markupNOT"; I use that trick a lot with things where I want to turn them off but leave a clear trace of what I did. Or, of course, just uncheck Enable This Item for each of them.

Ideally, I should be able to configure my global .tm_properties to say something like "markup.*": use the *inherited* font/size, shadowing myself from these settings without the violence of altering/disabling them.

Most of all, though, I wish these settings had never been introduced.
