Setting Default Report Fonts and Sizes

Article ID: 2025210           Last updated: 30 August 2017


Occasionally you may need to change AccountEdge's default reporting font.  Reasons may include:

  • Your cosmetic preference for a particular font
  • Reports appearing 'blank', or with too many pages
  • Reports not fitting onto a page
  • Some columns being 'cropped', such as dates and so on
  • Blocks & squares appearing instead of text


Step by Step

1.  At the top left corner of your screen, click File> Default Fonts...

2.  In the Default Font Selection window, click the Reports button.

3.  In the Report Format window, set each Report Line font to your preferred font and size.


Although you can use any font and size you desire, we recommend the following fonts:

  • Company    Arial 12  Bold
  • Address      Arial 10
  • Report        Arial 12  Bold
  • Headers      Arial 9    Bold
  • Subtitles     Arial 9    Bold
  • Body           Arial 9
  • Subtotals    Arial 9
  • Totals         Arial 9

4.  Once you've set the fonts as your require, click OK.

Your reports should now automatically use your new default fonts.


My reports are blank or appearing incorrectly!

If you find that your reports are 'blank' or not using your selected default fonts, do the following:

1.  Check that the default font has been set per the steps above.

2.  Go to the affected report’s Customisation window and click the Format button.

3.  In the Report Format window, click Use Default, which will set the report to use your default fonts.



4.  Click OK and produce your report.
