Another tech support request - Word again. [Feb. 6th, 2006|05:17 pm]

In Word for OS X, does anyone know how I can make the text in the reviewing pane a bit bigger? It's really hard to read at the moment. I've searched the help, but I can't find anything relevant. This is the reviewing pane that pops up when you add a comment, for example. I'm not asking how to change the text size in the actual document. I tried View->Zoom, but that didn't affect the reviewing pane, only the document.

(I'm using Word 2004 for Mac, Version 11.0 (040408) on OS X 10.4.3.)

Update: Solved thanks to klwalton.

As far as I can tell, you can use standard formatting controls on text in the reviewing panel but there is no discernible way (including hacking accessible preferences) to change the default or zoom the lot.

klwalton's idea below has done the trick, though it is per-document rather than global. It's Format->Style, then choose "Comment Text" in the "Styles:" selection box, click "Modify", a new window comes up, choose the new size, click "OK", that window will close, then click "Close" (not "Apply") in the previous window, and it's done.

(Detailed instructions provided not just in case you're interested, but also so I have a note of them for when I forget how to do it.)

Fantastic, thank you! It seems to only work per-document, but I can live with that!
