Changing Font and Font Size Globally

Posted By Susan C. King, Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Happening with Fonts

A document has been opened and the fonts are different throughout the document. Why and/or how does this happen? How does one quickly fix the issue?


The problem begins when someone chooses CTRL+A and changes the font and/or font size (a fast and immediate solution, but not for the ongoing editing involved with the document). From this point forward, text pasted into the document reverts to the original normal font and font size format. This is because the Normal Style was not overwritten but manually changed. 


The Normal Style is the base formatting of every editable document. It just starts the process with no indents, bolding or paragraph characteristics. All styles implemented throughout a document start with the characteristics of the Normal Style. 


The following is the process to globally change a Normal Style: 


Insert a RETURN (Provides base—no text paragraph style is applied)

Change the "Normal Style" (CTRL + SHIFT + S)

In the style name box {Type} Normal

CLICK Modify

Change font or font size
