How to change the Font Size in the "Regarding" field

Act! Premium Version 19.2.146.0, Update 2
Shared Database

Windows 10 Pro


When we enter a history item, whether it be a Call, an Activity, a Meeting, etc, if we put anything into the "Regarding" it shows up in the history with an enlarged Font size.  However, if we copy and paste the data into the "Details" field, it reverts to 8 point.  This screenshot shows the issue; the ones labeled "Account Matters" are in the Regarding field whereas the one about the quotes is in the details field:

Is there a way to change the font size for the Regarding field? Thanks.

Re: How to change the Font Size in the "Regarding" field

The results field is plain text and the screen font is controlled through Tools | Preferences. The detail filed uses Rich Text Format (RTF) and that is controlled directly in the detail editor. It looks like you may be referring to The reports there results field font is controlled by the field properties in the report editor shile the results font remains controll by the RTF embeded coding.

Hi financialITguy,

The font size being larger than expected in the Regarding & Details column is currently a known issue being tracked as defect D-07122.
I'm afraid I don't have any further information as to when it is likely to be fixed, but we are aware of the issue and it's safe to say it will be addressed in a future update.
