"regarding field" in History

I have one record (at leaast) in my database where the "regarding field" font is very tiny. Other contact records it's fine. I can't find where to change fonts for that particular field - can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks -- it's ACT! Pro 2012 14.1 hot fix 6 running on windows 8.1 64 bit system.

Changing the regarding field in History can't be done on a global basis because the data is stored in RTF format. You can edit the redarding field in individual records to change the font size.

I understand that - changing the font in the details area is straight forward, it's chaning the font in the "regarding field/line" that I can't find. do you know where to access that?

You have to open the indiidual records regarding field for editing and make the chanes there. You have to make any changes in the redarding field editor and will only apply to the presently open record.

I guess I'm dense, because the only thing I can seem to find to edit in the "Regarding Field" are the drop down items - no fonts of either type or size.

Re: "regarding field" in History

yes, I know that - I can edit the "details" part no problem. it's the "regarding" field (right below "record manager") that I can't seem to change fonts on.
