Outlook Mail message Shrinking

I was writing a reply to an email in Outlook (Office 2007) and meant to hit Control-B to switch to bold. I don't know what I actually hit, but entire message shrunk to microscopic size. Each letter is smaller than a normal period.  Messages I receive are normal and microscopic messages I send are received looking normal, and the To: and Subject: look normal, but New or Reply messages I create continue to be tiny. The font is set to Calibri 11, and if I change it to 200, I can read what I type, but the entire message is displayed along the left margin of the composition window.  I have tried every setting, key combination and font to get the display back to normal, but no luck. I appreciate any suggestions.

Hi Ron,

Did you check the font settings in Tools - Options - Mail Format - Stationary and Fonts? I am not sure if you were just changing the font size in the email message window itself.

I am trying to duplicate what you did, but I can't find any combination of keys that shrink my font to microscopic size. I'll keep trying.

I have attached a screen capture of a two page meeting announcement. The incoming email was fine, but it shrunk when I hit reply.

That picture helped.

Try holding down the CTRL key and then use your mouse scroll wheel to increase the size of the message.

Did that help?

That worked perfectly!!  How did you figure it out?  I read the MS Knowledge Base for a couple of hours and found no reference to this. Thanks again.

Actually that scroll wheel trick will work in web browsers (and other Microsoft programs) too if you want to make the page bigger or smaller. I mainly use it when viewing websites.

I'm glad it worked!
