Outlook 2010 (x-86) FONT TOO BIG and can't make smaller

Hi all
I can't seem to make the fonts any smaller when creating emails.

Is there any setting that can make the whole thing smaller -- Whilst I might not have 20/20 vision I'm not THIS bad.

(Click on the image to see what I mean)

Cheers
jimbo

Instead of HTML, have you tried using plain text and set the font to size 10 or 11?

Have you highlightened it then try changing the text

or try this: first type what you want in plain text higlight then changing size then change to html and try and make sure it keeps same size.

I checked it seemingly doesn't work as it's not for outlook, I'm not entirely sure as I don't need it/I haven't actually run'd it

Those are the right links. Though the problem is most readily manifested in Outlook, the root cause is in Word 2010.

It doesn't work...not 32 bit anyway. When one clicks on the link (IE, FF, Chrome) does not open. DNS error. Tried several times.

If I had your email address I can send screen shots!

I'm pretty sure that means something to x86 am I right?

32 Bit (x86 or something)

Do you mean the link I gave doesn't work, or the 'fix' doesn't work? ...

I have this problem too. In fact, ALL of the Office programs have this overly sized icons and fonts (notice that the icons in the screenshot are somehow stretched?).

I believe it has something to do with the theme or advanced display settings you're using. I'm using *webtrance's Qs Counter Elements 7 with HaxrCorp 4088/4089 as theme and font. I tried switching between the default theme and this theme, and I noticed the icon and font sizes returned back to normal on the default theme. I still haven't figured out what part is over-sizing them.

I'm downloading the fix right now.
