How do I change the font and font size of some text, an event, or a note?

1022


The exact method depends on what you are selecting and whether you want to change all the text or just part of the text.

-- all the text of an event
1) Select the event by clicking on it once. There will be a bold oval around the event when it is selected. It will be a dark oval in your system's selection color if you clicked on the event in the calendar element. It will be a gray oval if you clicked on the event in the Event List.
2) Type a Command-T (or select Font > Show Fonts from the Format menu) or click on Fonts in the toolbar. This will make Apple's Font panel appear. (If the Font panel is already present, a Command-T will hide it.)
3) Using the Font panel, you may set the font and the font size of all the text in the selected event. (The other features of the Font panel are disabled.)
4) If the event is a master repeating event (the first of its series), the changes that you make will affect all events in the series.
5) If the event is a repeating event (not the master repeating event), you will be asked if you wish to change just this one event, or all future events (including the current event).

-- some of the text in an event
1) Double-click on an event on the calendar. This will put the event into text edit mode with all the text selected. If you want to change the font or font size for all of the text, leave all the text selected. If you want to change just one word or just one letter, select just that one word or one letter. (You can also select the event in the Event List and use the second pane of the Inspector - Event Settings, first tab - Text & Dates.)
2) With the specific text selected, type a Command-T (or select Font > Show Fonts from the Format menu) or click on Fonts in the toolbar. This will make Apple's Font panel appear. (If the Font panel is already present, a Command-T will hide it.)
3) Using the Font panel, you may set the font and the font size of all the text in the selected event. (The other features of the Font panel are disabled.)
4) If the event is a master repeating event (the first of its series), the changes that you make will affect all events in the series.
5) If the event is a repeating event (not the master repeating event), you will be asked if you wish to change just this one event, or all future events (including the current event).

-- all of the text in a note
1) Select the note by clicking on it once. There will be eight sizing squares around the note when it is selected. If the sizing squares are grayed out and there is an insertion point blinking in the text, then your click must have double-clicked instead of single-clicked.
2) Type a Command-T (or select Font > Show Fonts from the Format menu) or click on Fonts in the toolbar. This will make Apple's Font panel appear. (If the Font panel is already present, a Command-T will hide it.)
3) Using the Font panel, you may set the font and the font size of all the text in the selected note. (The other features of the Font panel are disabled.)
4) If the note is set to display on more than one page (month), the changes that you make will affect all events in the series, both prior and future.

-- some of the text in a note
1) Double-click on a note. This will but the note into text edit mode with the insertion point at the end of the text. If you want to change the font or font size for all of the text, select all the text. If you want to change just one word or just one letter, select just that one word or one letter. (You can also select the note text in the third pane of the Inspector - Calendar Element Settings, first tab - Text.)
2) With the specific text selected, type a Command-T (or select Font > Show Fonts from the Format menu) or click on Fonts in the toolbar. This will make Apple's Font panel appear. (If the Font panel is already present, a Command-T will hide it.)
3) Using the Font panel, you may set the font and the font size of all the text in the selected note. (The other features of the Font panel are disabled.)
4) If the note is set to display on more than one page (month), the changes that you make will affect all events in the series, both prior and future.
