    Font sizing in Message list in Outlook 2016

    I always set my row fonts to 11 point -- yea, I have less than optimal vision. This worked fine 2010, but in v2016 there is a quirk.

    If I have it set so that the reading pane is on the right, all is fine. But if I set the reading pane to the bottom, unread messages remain at 8 point -- until they are marked as read, and then switch to 11 point.

    I double-checked all the font settings, and, since I have done this setup more than once I am sure I checked everything -- except of course the one setting that is acting strangely.

    Is this a quirk, or something that can be fixed, or a bug?

    Regards,

    Joe,

    If I go to View/View /Settings / Other Settings and then Row Font, it shows as 11 point when Outlook is set to "side-by-side", but shows in 8-9 point if the view is set to show the preview at the bottom.

    What happens if you change it to 11 points when the preview is at the bottom?

    When the preview is at the bottom, it works just as it did/does in 2010. I tripped across another setting to set the type Small/Medium/large... that seems to work in concert with the font settings. I suppose I just don't know quite yet how to work settings that have, for some reason, been changed.
