  1. Thanks everyone for the replies.

    Windows Live Upgrades (finally):

    Live writer rocks but the old live blog hosting stunk. Now with word press I can actual see the comments people post (a pretty simple and required feature if you ask me).

  2. I have to add my name to the list of those who bless you (and curse microsoft). This wasn’t a simple formatting problem for me. Word had spontaneously reduced all my comments to 1 pt. font.

    • Wow! After serching for over an hour (don’t tell my boss) and trying everything imaginable to change the comment text font size I found your solution. God Bless You! Now hopefully the wizzards at MS will find your solution and distribute it widely. Thanks!

  3. Thank you! I changed this once and then forgot how, and there is NO documentation. I couldn’t get it to change the font, but at least the size change worked!

  4. Mine just all of a sudden changed from 10 to 1. I went to styles, but I didn’t see Balloon Text–until I read this blog. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Like so many others, it was driving me crazy.

  5. Thanks so much for this, like others above I have been trying to figure this out for ages.
    This is my first ever blog! That is how gratetful I am.

  6. This was beyond awesome! Microsoft Help was useless. So glad I found this. Thank you! Microsoft should be paying you big $$ for helping its customers fix the glitches in its defective product.

  7. wonderful. My Boss had this problem and with your post, I could sort it out. This added points in my bag.
    Thanks a Ton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Thank you so much! I’m writing a book manuscript and it was crucial to get these comments larger so that I don’t strain my eyes every time I print out a draft to proof..thanks again!

  9. Thanks but it does not stick. The next document I open to edit and comment uses the original 8 point setting, not the 11 point I need to type and read it.
    I did alter the pink background and that does stick.
    Presumably there is yet another hidden step to make an option work for all documents.

  10. I found this to be very helpful, my boss had a document that had 1pt font balloon comments and I looked like a champ for figuring it out with a few mouse clicks. You rock! Thanks for the helpful hints. ;0)

  13. Not only did this work for the problem of increasing the font size in balloon comments, but the instructions with the screen shots are so much better than any help I’ve ever seen with Microsoft (or any other products). The user can quickly see what has to be done, rather than search all over the screen for a tab, a drop down, a group or whatever. Microsoft should adopt this technique for all its help!
    Secondly, the author made sure that the instructions would work no matter how you might have tailored your MS-Word so that the instructions would work for everyone. For example, making sure that you selected All Styles, since the default is to show only the recommended styles (or you might have changed it to something else). Otherwise, the Balloon Text style would not have been displayed as a choice.
