How to Change Default Font Colors for Lotus Notes 7


IBM's Lotus Notes takes a firm place in the annals of computing history, but it still serves as a lightweight, accessible program for those with older computers seeking straightforward software. From its introduction in 1989 to its final version in 2007, this ever-evolving program gained a stalwart following. Lotus Notes 7, released in 2005 for Windows 2000, Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.42 through 10.5, retained such productivity staples as Group Mail and Group Discussion while adding new server administration tools and Smart Upgrade features. On the simpler side, Lotus 7 still allowed users to tweak the font, changing it from its default black color.

  • Put your Lotus Notes 7 document in editing mode by double-clicking the document's text, choosing the “Edit Document” option from the Actions menu or pressing “CTRL+E” -- “COMMAND+E” for Mac users -- on your keyboard.

  • Select the current text with your mouse cursor if you wish to alter the current font from its default black color, or click the area in which you want to type the text to alter the default color of the text you will type.

  • Click on “Text” in the properties box at the top of the screen, then choose “Text Properties.” This displays a menu of editable text properties, such as font type, size, style and color. Click the arrow next to the Color box and select the color of your choice from the drop-down menu.

Tips & Warnings

  • In Windows, Lotus Notes 7's default font is a black, 10-point San Serif. On Mac platforms, its the same size and color, but the font style is Geneva.
