    Formula Bar Text Size

    Sorry if this has been asked already, I couldn't find it anywhere. I would love if the text in my formula bar was much bigger. Any idea how to do this?

    Thanks

    Not for 2011 as far as I know.

    Argh. This seems like such a simple function, I'm surprised it's not available.

    Doesn't work as in Excel 2010?

    File > Options > General, When creating new workbooks, Use this font & Font size, then quit and restart Excel.

    I use Consolas in the formula bar, so I can align multi-row formulas.

    Nope - that doesn't do it in 2011 sadly.
