Dismayed by limited Font sizes?

Dismayed by limited Font sizes?

Dismayed by limited Font sizes?

Although not a strict techie tip, one to share with your users and make them very happy:

If you want a font size that is not listed in the pull-down menu in Word, simply make one up.

First, select the text that you wish for the new font size. Instead of clicking on the font size pull-down arrow from the toolbar, click on the actual numbers describing the font size, type in the size you want and press Enter. The text jumps to the new size. If 48 is too small and 72 is too large, type in 60.

You can type in values larger and smaller, as well, 5 or 105 or more.

RE: Dismayed by limited Font sizes?

In addition, you don't have to use whole numbers. For instance, try 11.5.
