Yes, Use FILE/OPEN command to open the blank template (MMAT) file and change the theme there so all new maps generated from that template have the theme that you desire.

MMAT is the extension (eg. MyNewMap.MMAT ) that distinguishes templates from mindmaps MMAP

You can find all this in the MindManager helpfiles.
There are good and easy to understand

Actually, there are three steps here:

First, find the location of the template files from the MindManager Options (see screenshot below):


Second, copy/paste the location and open it in an Explorer window.



Third, navigate to the Templates > Blank Templates folder and choose the file (this is the MMAT file Michael was talking about) .

Modify the file and save it back again. That's it :)

Thanks for the detailed explanation that can be found in the MindManager Help.
However.....If you could in future please replace the word "Actually" by "In addition" or something like that, your comment would not be so rude.

I undrestand. My each map have different number of themes. And they are different between each other with different structure. For example when i pull "enter" or "insert" mindmanager create new theme with default properties

Thanks!

Ah OK, I think we were trying to much to help you set formatting properties but if I understand you correctly you're really looking to add certain Topic Properties (as outlined in your first screenshot) when adding a new topic in a map. I don't this is currently possible to be triggered from Enter/Insert or from the Ribbon, but you should be able to add certain 'prefab' topics to the Map Parts library and select then from there when adding new topics to your maps?

Is that something you could use?
