    Default font in Comments (Word 2007)

    Is there a way to change the font used when placing Comments in text? [Review tab]

    You should find that there is a style called Comment Text, and you can change it to be whatever font you please.

    Ian is that something I'll have to create? Because I'm not seeing anything like that anywhere.

    Dear me - research on my wife's PC with Word 2007 shows that this was easier and quicker in Word 2003 which I use. Progress!

    However, in Word 2007, if you get the Style Pane up, and click on the bit bottom right that says Options..., you can choose to show All Styles. You should then find Comment Text on the list and you can modify it as you see fit.

    Ian:

    I did find it ...thanks.

    It doesn't seem to want to accept font size changes [in the comment text] however.

    It let me change the font -- won't accept 'Bold' -- but, for instance, I set the size to 12 pt, and I'm pretty sure what I see is 6pt, maybe 8pt.

    But at least it's not Cursive any more!

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Try changing balloon text instead.

    Are you viewing comments in balloons in the margin? Please see this thread for more info and shared frustration: Changing the appearance of document comments (2003.

    Jefferson:

    I'm not totally now / why, but the instructions from that link worked. I know I meddled with both the Comment Text and the Balloon Text. But at least now I can read it!

    Thanks to all,
    Chuck

    Thanks for the link, Jefferson. It turns out to be more complicated than I thought!
