    Is it possible to increase the size of the font when using autofiltering
    dropdowns in Excel?

  2. Maybe just changing the zoom would be sufficient????

    I wish to keep the columns at a fixed visible width Dave. It will make my
    task much easier for the non-specialist with PC's and certainly with Excel.

  4. I actually meant the zoom icon on the standard toolbar (or View|Zoom from the
    menubar).

  5. Ahhh.

    But even if you change the zoom, you can't see all the text.

    I don't think that there's a way.

    The font used by Excel in the drop-downs is a system font and only
    scalable as a function of zoom (As has been suggested elsewhere) The
    only way to enlarge this font is with the Zoom facility - furthermore
    you can't change the colour etc etc. Pain in the ass, but there you
    are.

    At least someone could answer this one. Shame that Microsoft could not.
