Q: Changing Default Font in Word 2007

I have done this before, successfully. Now when I go through the steps, and say YES to saving a default font, it does not save it. I am not messing with styles or anything else--just trying to change the default font for the Normal style. All the steps I try seem to work, but when I go back into Word, the change has not held.

I want to fill in a 22 page questionnaire in MS-WORD. The questions are written in Ariel,,,,, but I want my answers to be in another font.

There are loads of questions, so I don't want to go back to each question to alter my one or two word reply.

Is there a way that all my answers will be in my chosen font ,,,, but leave the questions in Ariel ?

A:Default a Font in MS-Word 2007

I managed to alter the actual Default within MS-Word, to my chosen one.
And I thought that I'd hit pay-dirt, when I learned how to change the 'system' font.
This has changed 90% of the whole computer system: Desktop / O.Express etc etc.

,,,, but it still hasn't changed the font as I write after previous fonts !

Any ideas please ?

I'm sorry to impose on those of you who would regard this question as simple-minded, but I do not seem to be able to change the default footnote font in Word 2007. I am completely new to this program, having used WordPerfect for years, and I am stymied at every turn, having spent hours looking through every handbook. I realize that the font can be changed for each footnote, but I should like to change the default font for all notes in a document and for future documents.

Many thanks.

I am using Windows Vista (fully updated with SP2) and when I start Word 2007 the Style Set looks like Word 2007 but when I go to Change Styles, Style Set it appears that nothing is selected, i.e. there is no tick by Word 2007. If I change the Style Set to any of those listed the Default Language changes from English (United Kingdom) to English (United States).

Heres what Microsoft's online help says:

...You've got a great picture to illustrate your text, and you know exactly where you want it to be positioned. When you insert the picture, however, it floats off the page or seems to be cut off, which is not what you had in mind.
When a picture is inserted into your Word document, its default placement is in line with your text. That is, Word inserts the picture where your cursor is, even though it may not be aligned properly with the text around it...

The bold part is what I want to change... is this even possible?

I recently attempted to change my default theme style in MS Word 2007. There's a pull down menu on the right of the header menu in which to do that. However, whenever I click on it to change the default to something else it never takes. It doesn't appear to work when I do it in options either. It just stays as: Cambria (Headings) font, size 11, in the so-called 'normal' theme, with 10pt multiple spacing. It's useless to me in this default mode. Is there something I'm not doing, or is there a better way to do it?

I have Publisher 2000 on my computer. It works great except for the fact I can't seem to find out how to change the default font. I dislike New Times Roman and do not use it at all. I've tried to find the solution on-line, but all I can get is "text boxes" for 2002, 2003, and 2007. Am I stuck with having to change New Times Roman every time I want another font. I use Goudy Old Style most all the time in my work because I find its readability is better, and would like to have it as my default font. Any hope for that?

I have had a search of the forum and can't find a solution to this, so apologies if it is a known / obvious fix for the experts!

I have created a document in Word 2000 that includes some "Windings" symbols. In opening the document on other machines in Word 97, some of them have changed font colour and turned into "Wingdings 2" and others have remained in "Wingdings" but changed font colour.
Wingdings is definitely an installed font on the machines I have tried, and it appears to be a consistent change on those different machines (i.e. replaced characters are the same and colour changesare the same).
[We are all appear to be using the same printer drivers and are using Windows 98]

A:Changing symbol font from Word 2000 to Word 97

Slight error in the above. Gone back to original machine and checked document. When opening in Word 97 the font isn't actually changing as I did use "Wingdings 2" in the original anyway, but clolours are changing and the actual symbol used in "Wingdings 2" has changed.

So basically the two problems are:

1 - font colours are changing on all the symbol font characters (whether "Wingdings" or "Wingdings 2").
2 - a different symbol is being used for those in "Wingdings 2" on the Word 97 machines.

So I'm running across an issue with Win7 where my fonts seem to be changing on their own.

First I thought it must just be the settings on my browser, but its extended to my games and things as well. Steam, for instance, has changed from the default text (whatever it was) to a font that tends to overlap each other. I dont have any screen shots to show or I'd post them. Then just this morning all the text in my gmail account was italic on my home pc, but when I checked it from work it was normal.

Does anyone have any ideas? This is extremely annoying!

Is there a way to change the default font size of the Arabic font of choice in IE? I see where I can choose which font, but I don't see an option for its size, other than changing all fonts. Roman letters appear much larger than Arabic and to enlarge all to accomodate Arabic makes the Roman letters huge!

The alternative might be to locate an Arabic font that is inherently larger and add that to the list of options, but I don't know what font that would be nor how to add it to the list in IE8.

There has to be a way. Anyone have suggestions?

Some how my daughter accidently changed the default setting so that when you open up the Word Program, the defaults are set at an 88 font size, a font style no one uses, text already in the normal blank page and everything is light grey in color.

How do I go into the word program and change it so that when you open up "Word" the default is set at something that most of us can use for a normal document without allows having to go in and change everything?

A:Word Document - default font

Find and delete all occurrences of "" on the PC, when Word is not open.

When Word finds none when starting a new blank one with the standard defaults is created.

It's a hidden or system file so depending on your Windows version you may need to enable the viewing of this file type to find it to delete it.

It must exist, so if your search is not successful, its the file type that is the problem, preventing you viewing it.

Notepad should always open using the font you used last saved something. So if you open Notepad, type one letter, change the font to Verdana and save it somewhere as Temp.txt next time you open Notepad it will use Verdana. You can delete this Temp.txt file - it was only to populate the registry with the last used font. Notepad will keep on using Verdana until you change the font in some other document and save that.

This drives me crazy. For some reason, when I bring up new documents that other people have done, when I create a footnote, it is not in superscript in the text. It will be that way on a new document, so that's how the default is set, but how do I change that for a document that doesn't have that set?

Also, when I cut and paste from other documents, even if I am cutting a certain font, like Times New Roman, it still pastes as courier sometimes. How do I always make sure when cutting and pasting to a document the new text coming in will stay as the default I have set or at least stay as the type of font it was in the other doc.

I have Word 2007 & Windows XP, but not everyone in our office has upgraded to 2007 yet.

When accessing a document that was originally created in Word 2003, I am working in "compatibility mode". Everything looks great onscreen, but when I print it out, the font (Times New Roman) seems to be crowded on the page. Example: the word 27th will have the th scrunched on top of the 27; also, a hyphen will be scrunched on top of letters, or even a space will seem to be nonexistent.

I have checked the justification (it's normal left justify), and also tried changing the font to Arial, with no positive effect

Is this a printer problem or a Word 2007 problem? And how can I fix it?

I am having problems to change the default language in word 2003.I bought an afrikaans dictionary program.Word sees the dictionary and it is set as the default dictionary to check the spelling.
The program however does not use the dictionary it seems because it does not pick up mistakes I make deliberately.

I try to change the dafault language to Afrikaans but as soon as I start typing it automatically reverts to US English

Can anyone please help me !!

First open the new doc, then make sure you have it in print layout - go to file | page setup and adjust to whatever way you want regarding the margins, font, etc. then hit default. I did this and all my new doc's open the way I want. Hope this is what you want.

Hello Riptorn,
Re Word 2007.
For Font
Make sure you are on the Home Tab - click on Font - Click on this icon to open up the Font Dialogue Box.
The Font dialogue box is where you choose your default font for Word 2007. To select a font, just click on it from the Font list. If you are unsure which font to use, just click on the font and look at the Preview pane located at the bottom of the Font dialogue box. The preview pane will show you what the selected font looks like.
When you have selected your preferred font style, you just need to set the selections as your default font for Word 2007. To do this, all you have to do is click on the Default button that is located at the bottom left corner of the Font dialogue box.

For Page. Go to the Page Lay Out Tab - bottom right hand corner click Page Set Up.[ Where you should be able to set the default that you want.]
Hope that helps you.

I have a problem connected with Microsoft Word 2007. It is caused by the fact that I've set too small font-size. Now I want to have it automatically changed to a larger size by letting the program replacing all text sized 9 of Calibri font with text sized 10 of Arial Narrow font. Exactly, I mean that program should search for all text sized 9 of Calibri and replace it. I don't know how to do this...

In Outlook 2007 Calendar, the default reminder time is 15 minutes. That is, Outlook will remind you of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

In Tools\Options..., I've tried to set the default reminder time to a shorter interval. But no matter what I set it to--10 minutes, 12 minutes, 5 minutes--Outlook keeps reminding me of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

In Tools\Options..., there's a checkbox called "Default Reminder:" Whether I check it or leave it unchecked has no effect on the reminder time either--Outlook keeps reminding me of each appointment 15 minutes in advance.

Any ideas what could be happening here?

Is there a way to dictate, in Microsoft Word 2010, that any newly-created document will have my own Style in place as the default one, or whatever the term might be, if anything, that decides what the starting set-up is? It's currently the font Calibri, size 11, 10.5 Multiple line spacing, 1" margins on all sides, etc. My preferences are different in every way, so I manually change all of that every time I make a new document.

I have been using Word 2000 on my XP computer and just got my brother-in-law's Vista computer. I copied my word files over to a folder on the Vista computer and when I open up word documents, the document pages are tiling instead of simply showing one after another.  In other words, I'm seeing 4 pages on one screen instead of a vertical listing of pages, one below the next that I can scroll to view.  In short, if I go to page 9, page 10 appears to the right instead of below page 9. then page 11 appears directly below page 9.
All I want is for the pages to align vertically and numerically like they always have--one page to a screen that I can scroll to the next on vertically.. I can't seem to find a way to do this from the Word 2007 menus.

A:Word 2007 is tiling by default

Kind of sounds like a combination of the zoom level and viewing mode.It sounds like you are in Print Layout view mode and maybe at a zoom level on a big monitor that allows more than one page to be viewed. Print Layout will show you a WYSIWYG (or what I call WYSINNWYG…i.e. What You See Is Not Necessarily What You Get) version of the document that kind of shows each page.There should be a View tab on the Ribbon (the new way of doing things since Microsoft got ride of menus). If you click on it, then the first section will list the various view modes and the third section will allow you to adjust the zoom settings.If you want the good old "every things is mushed together, continuous scrolling" mode, then select Draft. That is what you are likely used to seeing.If you want to keep it in the Print Layout to see individual pages, then you could just zoom in some…how much will depend on the monitor size and screen resolution. For my 24" monitor running at 1920x1200, I tend to zoom in at 150% or maybe even 200% if I want the page to "fill" the full width of the screen. To zoom, you can click on the magnifiying glass icon/button which will give you a Zoom dialog box where you can pick the zoom level or use one of the preset buttons (i.e. One Page, Two Pages, Page Width, 100%).

Create a new Word template, perform steps 1 through 6 the Save As a .dotm file, because page numbering is considered a Macro so your template must be Macro enabled.
So you will create a new document using that template, when it opens you will just type in your custom text and complete the remainder of the steps. Probably someone who is slick with VBA can write the macro so that it will ask for the custom text and once you submit, it will automate the rest of the steps for you.

I am trying to create a template with specific styling to be used by our group. Any document created with this template should be saved to a shared network folder. I'd like to know if this is possible...

When I right click on my template and choose NEW, the resulting document should use...

- the default text font face, size and colour that I specified.
- the default paragraph spacing and indentation rules that I specified.
- Default to saving at location as "Z:\Shared Info"

All help is appreciated!

A:Change default text and paragraph style + save location in Word 2007?

I would suggest 1st creating a new folder in any one of your Shared locations. Then open a new Word doc within that folder, click on the Styles icon, select any template and click on the little down-arrow to the right of the template's name, click on Modify, and set up your customized template exactly as you want it. You can also change the name of the new template to anything that you want.

When you're done customizing your template, be sure to check (at the bottom of the screen) "New documents based on this template." So long as you create any other documents within this folder, they should automatically be saved to the new folder. And just be sure that for each one, you remember to utilize your customized template.

I've been struggling with an issue that I hope someone here can help resolve. A few weeks ago, I suddenly started seeing this ugly font (see images below) on many webpages.

I think this issue began right around the time I installed some other fonts, but I am not sure. Initially, I figured it was a Chrome thing but have since confirmed the issue extends to IE and Firefox, leading me to believe this is a Windows issue. By the time I tried to revert the changes via System Restore, it was too late (restore only went back a few days; maybe I need to adjust settings there?).

I tried to reset the default font but Windows does not seem to respond to that. When I click "Restore to default font settings" the button greys out but nothing else happens. No dialog box and no change in the issue.

Any ideas?
