William 361 Reputation points

Dear All,

Since a couple of weeks, suddenly my default font cannot be kept saved.

Each time I change it from Signatures Stationery --> New mail messages --> Font, the default one +Body is selected.

I try to change de value in the registry, repair Office, updtate Office with no avail.

Any one has an idea?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi @William ,

    I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with your default font settings in Outlook. Here are a few steps you could try:

    1. Check for Add-ins: Sometimes, add-ins can interfere with the normal operation of Office applications. You can check this by going to File > Options > Add-Ins. Try disabling them temporarily to see if the problem persists.
    2. Create a new Outlook profile: Sometimes, the Outlook profile can get corrupted, causing various issues. You can create a new profile from the Control Panel > Mail > Show Profiles > Add.
    3. Reinstall Office: If none of the above solutions work, you might need to completely uninstall and then reinstall Office.
