Resize text in reviewing pane in MS Word

I am reviewing documents in Word and on opening the reviewing pane, the size of text shown in the pane is minute, so I am unable to read the details of any changes shown. If I click in the pane, the formatting toolbar tells me I am looking at Tahoma 8pt, but it looks to me like 2pt at best! How do I make the text appear larger in the reviewing pane? I have previously had no problem with this, it has always appeared as a legible size in the past.

Asking the obvious....assuming that you mean what I would call Print View or Print preview.

Have you tried changing the % figure in the toolbar to say 75% or more?

Yes, I am looking at my document in print view. The % figure is 100% so I can clearly see everything in the document itself. It's just the text in the reviewing pane that is so small.

Do you mean the reviewing pane for looking at changes that have been made to the document? I don't normally use this feature but I've just used it to look at a document saved in Track Changes mode and the text in the reviewing pane is the same point size as in the main window. I cannot see any way of changing the font size in the reviewing pane.

Maybe Detect and Repair on the Help menu?

VoG: yes,it is the the reviewing pane for looking at changes made to the document.

I can't see any way of changing the font size in this either, hence the query.

I have tried Detect and Repair as you suggest, but no joy here. Thanks anyway.
