The incredible shrinking font

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS

Q: In Excel 2010, the font tool allows me to select from a font size ranging from 8 points to 72 points, but I’m sure that I’ve seen others use a smaller font. Can you tell me how this is done?

A: Even though Excel’s font size tool offers font sizes ranging from 8 to 72 points, you can type in point sizes ranging from 1 to 409. For example, in the screen image below, I have entered a font size of 3.5 points, and Excel 2010, 2007, and 2003 will accept this smaller font.
