I am creating a new report using BIDS in SSRS 2008 R2.  I created a tablix. I want to have the default border line be 1.25 pt and black with Verdana font. Is there a way to set the entire tablix or the entire report to that default so that I don't have to go into every cell and change it?

Try to select all tablix cells by dragging the cursor down all row selectors.  Once fully selected, see if you can alter the border style/default property.
