For many of us the font used in our documents, presentations and workbooks is a choice we actively make. When I’m creating something for others to see – which is most of the time – then I want it to look a certain way.
The easiest way to create something that I’ll like is to have my default font set to my preferences, not the preferences of the software makers.
So… along that line of thinking… today we’re going to locate the settings for Excel 2007’s default font.
First, we’re going to the Options dialog box. (Office Button, Excel Options button)
In the Popular category of options locate the “When creating new workbooks” section.
Here’s where you’ll find the settings to choose the default font and size.
Make your choices, click OK and you’re good to go.
All new workbooks will start out with your preferences instead of someone else’s.
