Change default font size in Word - How?

  Border View 10:31 14 Feb 2003

I use Windows Office Professional 97. In Word the font size defaults to 10. This is no good for me, I prefer either 12 or 14. Yesterday having painfully entered font size 14 and in places using font size 9 in a 27 page document, when I went into Print Preview the font size was reduced to 10 throughout.

Can anyone please suggest how I can change the default setting for the font.

I use Windows 98SE

Format _ font and then set it as you wish. The the bottom click the default button. That should do it.

Can only try to guide as I use WordPerfect, Have a look under FILE IN the menu for ether document or page setup for what you are looking for

In word, select Tool bar/Format/Font, then select size in right window, and choose default, bottom left of box.
