    My first impression of the comments editor was that the font was VERY small, at least in the very large window. Could it be made larger?

    Hi David,

    You can set the Font in View | Options >> General Tab


    But not the size. I will add this shortly.

    Thanks.

    Jeff

    I can set the font, but I can't set the size of the font in the comments. The size field there only controls the grid font size.

    Hi David,

    This setting controls the font size in the comments editor.

    On new comments, it is the default font size. If you want to modify existing comments, then click on this button first to clear all preserved formatting (e.g. font size) settings; and it will change to the size set above.

    to

    fyi

    I don't have that setting! Honest!

    I have only the grid setting. I am using 5.1.23.

    It is interesting that you have to hit Clear Formating for the new size to take effect, even if you already entered text at the new size. If you go out and come back in, the size of the text is back to the small size. Even if you have entered no text, you have to hit Clear Formatting for the larger size to take effect.

    Well, I take that back. Now it seems to remembering the size. Don't know why it wasn't doing that before.

    It probably is because I had the Plain Text box checked. If I open the sighting again, and Plain Text is already checked, it will show as the small size. Otherwise, it doesn't. In other words, you don't see the Plain Text take effect until you update and go back into it.
