    global font change? (2000 SR 1)

    Is it possible to do a global font change in Outlook? I reset my ruler in so that inches displayed at the correct width in my screen settings in windows and now everything in outlook is tiny!
    I found how to change and define views one at a time, but it will take forever to complete. Is there a way I can change everything at once in outlook, other than to put the ruler back to incorrect?

    global font change for mail or for folders? i'm not sure what rulers you're taking about either. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    for each view, you can adjust the view by name (in view > current view > define views) and it will apply to all folders using that view.

    for messages displayed in preview or opened message forms, tools > options > mail format > stationery section, fonts button. word mail needs the template changed.

    for overall view, within outlook and the entire computer, you can adjust the font size from the display applet. This is best for high resolution on a large monitor (or low res on a small monitor).

    I want to change all fonts; folders, mail, everything! The ruler is on display properties under settings where you can set a font size. I changed the ruler here to 74% which lets an inch actually display as an inch long. It had been set to large fonts, which came up at 125% which gave me a ruler whose inch equalled about an inch and a half. Because of this I have been running Word docs at 75% just to see the entire page width, and also to get an idea of actual size something will be when I make signs, etc. Unfortunately this has made all my fonts show up at 74%, which is unreadable in the default 8 pt. Tahoma. I want everything to be 12 pt. CG Omega in Outlook. While I can change individual views, I am having to do it for each folder, and then for each type of view in that folder. With define views you have to change fonts in 7 places per folder, and it each of those 7, 3 times in other settings and a minimum of 5 in automatic formatting. Multiply this by 20 or so folders and it is going to take hours to do!

    I want to just tell outlook to use a different default than 8pt. to begin with.
