Font formatting in Active X Control boxes



I've created a form using Developer Contols Active X Controls, specifically a
text box field. I've highlighted the entire document and set the font at
Arial 12 pt. Some of the text box fields fill with Arial 12 pt. and some fill
with Times New Roman 12 pt. How do I change the formatting so ALL the fields
print using the same font and point size?

Make sure Word is in Design mode. Right-click an ActiveX control and choose
Properties. Set the desired font in the properties window.

Note, however, that ActiveX controls aren't very easy to deal with. (For one
thing, macro security doesn't like them; it may force Design mode when users
open the document.) I'll suggest that you use other methods to create a form
in Word. For some examples, see
