<txDef> (Text Default)

This element defines the default formatting which is applied to text in a document by default. The default formatting can and should be applied to the shape when it is initially inserted into a document.

      <schemeClr val="accent2">
        <shade val="75000"/>
  <bodyPr rtlCol="0" anchor="ctr"/>
    <defPPr algn="ctr">
    <lnRef idx="1">
      <schemeClr val="accent1"/>
    <fillRef idx="2">
      <schemeClr val="accent1"/>
    <effectRef idx="1">
      <schemeClr val="accent1"/>
    <fontRef idx="minor">
      <schemeClr val="dk1"/>

In this example, we see a default text which references a certain themed fill, line, effect, and font along with an override fill to these. ]
