InfoPath - Change Font, Font Colour etc.

Hi,

I have a Form Library in SharePoint which I have set to open in the client application by default.

I have set the default Fonts and their size when I created the Form. Now if I click to Add a Document to my Library the Form opens in InfoPath but the Font options are greyed out.

Is there anyway I can change this so the Font and their colour can be changed? It would make things easier if I was to amend a Form and the changes were in red for example.

Thanks

I think this is probably possible, however it has nothing to do with InfoPath.  It would be changing the form library view properties in SharePoint.  I believe in SharePoint designer you can get to this level of detail, but that is not my area or expertise.

for each view in infopath, you can go to view properties and set the way the content of each element is shown (under text settings)
hope this helps

Hi livanescu,

Ok, I see what you mean about the View Settings. This would change the default for each element in the Form. Is there any way though that I can have the user change the font colour themselves?

For example the default is Tahoma 10 and Black, which is the way I want it but I am trying to give the users the option to change this to their own font colour. ie. Change the font from the default Black to Red in order to highlight changes in the Form so they are easy to see.

I'm not sure if this is possible but thought I'd ask.

Thanks

It might be getting a bit more complicated - you would have to "simulate" the behavior by enabling buttons that will "highlight" that specific piece of text (next to each important field and/or section=group of fields) you can create a highlight button that will show up if data is entered and will change the font of that field and/or section to have the highlight effect - a "unhighlight" button is needed (when the color was changed to switch back to it's original state).
you can use the same "highlighting" mechanism, but based on rules and validations; i.e. a field goes out of a set of acceptable values, highlight it by setting the font bold, red, background yellow etc...

Ok I actually managed to do it using a Rich Text box instead of the standard Text Box in InfoPath - which muts be formatted as Plain Text by default.
That now allows me to change the font colour if the Rich Text fields.

so you wanted just a single box formatted... my bad... didn't realize that from the description...
