Where to set font for all lyrics in the score editor prior to input?

Hello. Is it possible to set a default font size for the lyrics in the score editor? I find that when I change the size in the text field in the score editor they always default back to a specific font size. it would be much more helpful if I could set this font and have all my lyrics use a set font without having to manually change them after the input. I tried “attribute sets” but there is no option for lyrics in the drop down

So I tried on the actual score settings text page as well, see here

You will see my attribute set in the “Set” field named “lyrics font” .This is a text attribute set I created and I loaded up here but when I click in the score to input text, this reverts back to a default setting
