Hi. I always put chord symbols bigger. Is there a way to change their default size? Thank you

Use Text-->Styles to change the size of a text style globally.

Thanks Mike.
Can I make this changes default for any score?
I managed to do it for a template but not by default for Sibelius.
Other thing I can't change by default nor with a template is page size. (sibelius chooses Letter and A4 is the common one where I live)
thanks again!

You need to create and save both a manuscript paper and a house style with your new defaults and use them to start new projects.

For paper size, you set that up in File-->Preferences. Once set, it should be setup for all new scores. It will not change already created scores, but you could try applying one of your new house styles (after setting it to use A4).
