I've successfully created an Outlook stationary template, but the font size keeps going to 11pts whenever I create a new email using this stationary. I've looked at my default font settings and they appear to be at 14pts, which is what I would like as a default. This has become very frustrating. Any help??

Thanks.

Additional detail: The custom stationary I created has a background image that was inserted using the COLOR option method. Also, I am using a signature for this stationary. A pecularity is whenever I create a new message, I see 4 lines above my signature. All of those lines are set to 11pts. I never created those lines anywhere, either in the stationary itself or the signature file.

In a new message without stationery, is that the same font used for the message text? If so, it's using the default font settings. Is the default something like Font Name (+Body) or just Font Name?

Without stationary (or signature) the font is Calibri, 14pts. No +Body designation. Interesting thing too is when I have the stationary applied, 4 blank lines show up above the signature. They come up as follows:

Line 1 = Calibri (body) 11 pts

Line 2 = Calibri 14 pts

Line 3 = Calibri 14 pts

Line 4 = Calibri (body) 11 pts


I never inserted these lines to my knowledge and have no way to remove them... unless I remove the stationary, of course. If I apply signatures, it seems to maintain the 14pt and only adds 2 lines above the signature, which is fine. I'm just wondering why when I apply the stationary, it adds two more lines (one above and one below), both @ 11pts.

It's obviously the stationery. :)

do you use 14 pt for everything? if so, you need to set the body format to that.

See Understanding Fonts and the +Body Style - Slipstick Systems - short version is:

1. open a new message form

2. switch to the Format text tab

3. expand the Change Style button

4. choose your preferred fonts (and colors & spacing, if desired)

5. when finished, click on Set as Default

Now every that uses the body format will be 14 pt. I'd also go into Font setting (Control panel, mail, stationery & fonts) and set +body as the default.

I have to tell you, I've done what you recommend and I'm still getting extra lines above the signature line of various font size. I even deleted the stationery and signature I created and started fresh. Now I have 5 blank lines above the signature. I used to have 4. It's frustrating. I KNOW there are no lines at all when I created the stationery, but they sure appear with every instance of a new message. Something is doing this. Maybe I'm doing something, but I'm really at a loss. Any help is appreciated.

Can you send me the stationery file? zip it up with the folder that goes with it and send it to diane at slipstick.com. It should be at %appdata%\Microsoft\stationery.

I opened the HTML file in Notepad and checked the coding.

Two things affected it:

The default font was set to 11 pt.

Code:
 /* Style Definitions */
p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal 
 
	{mso-style-unhide:no; 
 
	mso-style-qformat:yes; 
 
	mso-style-parent:""; 
 
	margin:0in; 
 
	margin-bottom:.0001pt; 
 
	mso-pagination:widow-orphan; 
 
	font-size:11.0pt; 
 
	font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif";
And at the bottom, there were 3 lines in the stationary. The middle one is 'correct' but all 3 can be deleted, leaving just

Code:
<div class=WordSection1 
</div 
<div class=WordSection1 
<p class=MsoNormal style='mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none'><span 
 
style='mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri;mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri;mso-bidi-font-family: 
 
Calibri;color:black'><o:p> </o:p></span></p 
<p class=MsoNormal><o:p> </o:p></p 
<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:14.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt; 
 
mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri;mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri'><o:p> </o:p></span></p 
</div
