Hi,

I want to fill in a 22 page questionnaire in MS-WORD. The questions are written in Ariel,,,,, but I want my answers to be in another font.

There are loads of questions, so I don't want to go back to each question to alter my one or two word reply.

Is there a way that all my answers will be in my chosen font ,,,, but leave the questions in Ariel ?

thanks for reading

I managed to alter the actual Default within MS-Word, to my chosen one.
And I thought that I'd hit pay-dirt, when I learned how to change the 'system' font.
This has changed 90% of the whole computer system: Desktop / O.Express etc etc.

,,,, but it still hasn't changed the font as I write after previous fonts !

Any ideas please ?

cheers

I didn't think it could be done and I just asked my wife who is the ultimate end user and she said no.

With Word 2007 though, you can hover your mouse over the highlighted answer and an action box pops up so you can change it immediately as you do it without having to scroll up to the top of the page. It just takes a second.

Does that make sense to you?

Hi, Thanks for that.

Yep - it does make sense - but the whereabouts of the 'action box' dosn't make a lot of difference, to me. I still have to hit the drop-down button to select a font,,,, then do it again for all answers.

The form/s consist of hundreds of questions/statements,,,, with room for the reply on the same line (in the same 'box'). I wanted to put replies in a different font,,,, to keep the answers clear from the questions. Ordinarily, yes, it dosn't take a moment to alter a line or two,,,, but being so many does take a lot of time.

Obviously, if it can't be done, then so be it. I must say though, that I am a little surprised at that in this day & age, with thousands of forms now being filled in on the internet etc.

many thanks for your (& your wifes) help.
all the best
