    Default comment font is BOLD

    The default font in Comments is in BOLD font; even though I can affect other features of the DEFAULT font, like its size and whether it is in Italics [through Display; Appearance; ToolTip in Item], the BOLD appearance is unaffected by the switch for BOLD. Is there a remedy for this ?

    Hi,
    Until farther and/or better solutions - try to run the following Macro (it can be adopted as an Event-Macro of any kind]:

    Thank you for that reference - however, I had already been to tooltips - I mentioned that in my post. The BOLD switch there does NOT affect the 'bold' in Comments, although the BOLD switch in the Edit bar of the SS does. I don't want the author's name in Comments, but anything else I type there starts in BOLD. The suggested macro deals with font type and -size, not BOLDness.

    Thank you for the macro - unlike the other macro this one does address BOLDness. I'm puzzled why other features such as AutoSize, HorizontalAlignment and VerticalAlignment are referenced as I want to change only BOLD to non-BOLD.
    Can this macro be set to run automatucally everytime the SS is launched ?
    For that matter, can it apply to any SS of mine that I open or any I create. If so, how ?

    It would be simpler to alter your settings
