      Can I force placed fields to use defaults automatically?

      Post

           Hi. Regardless of the theme the current layout is using, when I drag fields from the "Field Picker" onto the layout, those fields do NOT take on the formatting of the Theme's defaults. For example, my theme is set so that all text is black. I have made sure to Save my changes to the "Current Style" and to Save my changes to the "Current Theme". But when I drag new fields into a SubSummary part, the labels are still in a white font (instead of my defined black).  So for every field I place, I then have to choose the label and select "Object Style" > "Default" to apply the theme to that label. 

           What am I doing wrong? It seems to me that if the definition exists in the theme (which it does, as evidenced by the appearance changing correctly when I *choose* default), then when I drag fields onto the layout, they should automatically take on the default settings of that layout's theme. 

           Thank you for your assistance.
