Hello,

there is a hidden paragraph style called Balloon Text. Open the dialog to Manage Styles and use the options in this dialog, or open the styles pane and display all styles. There you can see the Balloon Text style. Right-click (or whatever the Mac equivalent for right-click is) the style, select Modify and then set the font size to your liking.

I don't have Word 2011 for Mac, and describe the steps for Word 2010 for Windows. But the principle is the same, i.e. change the hidden style.

cheers, teylyn

I have tried clicking the arrow next to Track Changes and then clicking Change Tracking Options. Under Balloon > Preferred width, increase the width.

However, it doesn't work.

Can you dump the screen for my reference ? I couldn't manage how it in my Word Window 2010.

So the 2011 above was a typo, and you are using Word 2010? That makes things easier (for me :))

Click the lower right hand corner of the Styles group in the Home ribbon to open up the Styles pane. Click the button at the bottom of the Styles pane to Manage styles

 styles pane
In the Manage Styles box, select Alphabetical from the first drop-down, so you can easily find the Balloon Text style. Select it and click the Modify button to make changes to the style.

 manage styles
In the next dialog, Modify Style, select a different font size, then close all dialogs.
