Envelope Defaults Not Saving in Word 2016

In regards to Word 2016:  Every time I set the defaults up for my font, font size, and bold, when I come back the next day or even the next document none of my defaults have been saved even though I have clicked "save", "apply", or other securing options.  Anyone else have this issue?  Thank you in advance.

do you know how to create a Word template?

set all your defaults up for font, font size, and bold

use 'Save as' to save this document as a template, say 'envelope.dotx'

when you create a new document for envelopes, select File -> New -> My templates -> Envelope.dotx

you can also create specific paragraph styles for this template
