When I am in my Calendar (the actual Calendar entry) I can change Fonts and font size to the same extent as Word 2013 (which is to say lots) and that is because Outlook uses Word as its underlying editor.

1. Is your limit of 9 in a calendar entry?
2. How many choices do you get in Word 2013?

I get the 9 from when i right click in a date and choose colors. it changes the back ground a little. Word has a lot of choices, but the calendar that the question comes from is a public calendar and the formatting choices are in the body and users are looking for variety at a glance. they want things to stand out more.

I am not clear what you are doing.

If there are no calendar entries open, you cannot change the fonts, sizes or colours of the basic calendar. I cannot change these. Is this true for you?

If you open a calendar entry, I get everything Word gives me for the body of the entry, but the framework cannot be changed (just like the basic calendar itself).

what my users are looking to do is color code the entries that how up in the month view. Using catagories looks like it will work for them. thanks for your efforts.
