I stumbled upon a great feature in Outlook the other day.
While in the compose mode, I used the “Ctrl-Mouse Wheel Scroll Up” feature to see if it would enlarge the text (as it does in IE or Firefox) and it did, which is what I expected. (FYI, my font is “Calibri 11”.) I composed the message and hit “Send”.
Later, when I went to compose another new message, the body text was still enlarged! I didn’t expect it to retain that setting between messages but it did. I find that to be a plus.
And the really odd thing? Even though the text is made larger:
- The font size in the drop down on my toolbar when composing is still set at 11 even though the font is much larger.
- Recipients of my message see the font size as Calibri 11.
I find that to be great design. I can set my font to a normal size (Calibri 11) for my recipients but have a larger font when composing.
