This is probably the reason why it's so confusing. Preferences contains both 
Global preferences and Document defaults. Maybe we should make this monster 
three headed. There should probably be something like "Global Preferences" 
that are not tied to a document then "Document Defaults" and "Current 
Document Preferences" which would override the settings in the "Document 
Defaults". Now "Document Defaults" and "Current Document Preferences" should 
be identical in which case it wouldn't be all that confusing just to have a 
single dialog for these which leads us back to the two headed monster quite 
differrent from the current situation though: Global Prefs (not related to 
docs) and Document setup (where we should somehow, Quark/1.2.x style?, 
identify the target of the changes) or if that's confusing just keep the two 
dialogs for defaults and current document but add a third dialog for global 
non doc specific prefs.
