Outlook Contact Font Size

In Outlook 2007 and 2010 it has a funky looking contact/business card for each contact, upon selecting an individual contact I can then right click the 'Business Card' upper right and choose edit.  Inside here you can change the font size of the phone number to bigger than the others.  This works a treat for quick glacing at clients before calling.

However here is my question.
Is there a way I can make this font bigger across all contacts with one action?  Is there a registry key that could be copied or editted?

You simply edit the Contact Form.
To do so you need to first enable the developer tab in the Ribbon
This is done by File>Options>Customize Ribbon
On the right you should see developer option, put a tick next to it.

Once done save and exit

Then go to contacts, new contact.
Click on the developer tab in the ribbon
Choose Design this form
Select your fild you want to edit.
Right click on it and choose properties
Hereyou can change the Font and Color
Apply Save
Then Save the from

Many thanks for your pointers.  That works and I have to say never used it before....
However when I go in to the form builder as you point out I cant see the element I want to edit.  I have attached an image to show the element I want to edit.  Its the business card on the far right.

I don't know if you know how I can edit this section.  

Secondly when you make the edit to the form how do I overwrite the current one so it uses the same one.

Once again many thanks for your pointers, never thought to look or even try that element.

Regards,

That section is not a form, so you cant edit it in the forms section....

To be honest if you are just trying to make your fonts on ALL your business cards easier to see in your contacts.
Instead of going through all that trouble, I would just use Ctrl+ Wheel Scroll on Mouse to make them bigger er smaller.

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

Only other way would be to use a 3rd party app, such as contact genie
