    Question need more info...

    this works for the button created to call the edit form field dialog box, but I can't seem to change the dialog box itself. I can change the fonts of all the fields on the form except for the formatted memo field. I would like to be able to increase the font as displayed by the edit dialog box.

    sorry.. are you asking about one of the built-in objects, or something from the experts or app framework?

    Borland and Corel have a long history of creating things like the "experts" and the "application framework" .. they always have limited functionality, hidden code, quirks, etc.. if you make your own forms, you have full control.. more to learn, at first, and more work, but full control..
