Is it the size that bothers you? You could monitor it and reset it to your usual size.

RichTextBox1.TextRTF = "{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deffo\deflang\1033\deflangfe1033{\fonttbl{\fo\fswiss\fprq2\fcharseto Verdana;}}{\colortbl;\red255\greeno\blueo;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\nowidctlpar\cf1\fo\fs44 BLAH\par}"


RichTextBox1.SelStart = 1
RichTextBox1.SelLength = Len(RichTextBox1.Text)
If IsNull(RichTextBox1.SelFontSize) Then
    RichTextBox1.SelFontSize = 8.5
End If

    For I = LBound(saElements) To UBound(saElements) Step 2
        With Form1.RTB
        .SelStart = 99999999
        .SelLength = 0
        .SelColor = saElements(I)
        .SelText = saElements(I + 1) & Left$(vbCrLf, -2 * CLng((I + 1) = UBound(saElements)))
        .SelStart = 99999999
        End With
    Next I
