Font

Modifies the font, font size, and color for the selected text.

Use the Font command to format only selected text.
To format all tasks or resources in a particular category, such as summary tasks, critical tasks, or overallocated resources, use the Text Styles command on the Format menu. You can also use the Text Styles command to format column titles, the timescale, and bar text on the Gantt Chart.
Individual text formatting overrides formatting applied using the Text Styles command. For example, if you use the Text Styles command to format all noncritical tasks as regular 8-point, you can use the Font command to format a selected noncritical task as 10-point italic. The Font command affects only the task you select.

To apply a different font follow the next steps:

Font - Select a font.

Font Style - Select a style for the font.

Size - Select or type a font size.

Underline - Select if you want underlined text.

Color - Select a color.

Sample - Shows the font as it will appear.
