I have a problem with the size of the Thai text in the Find What box. It is very small. Can I set the font size? How?

It just doesn't work.
The right answer is: you CAN'T change the font in address bar anymore.
The method shown only affects the font shown in address bar WHEN YOU TYPE THE TEXT IN.
The already existing text is shown in default font no matter what.

I have had this problem also. Seems Excel does not like certain fonts (e.g. Calibri, Battambang, etc) as it does not display right, as you have found. Sadly, I know of no way to fix the problem, which is really annoying if you want a font that copes with more than one language (!)

Hello Erundi,

May I know which version of Excel you are using? My Excel version is Microsoft Excel 365. Once I set up the font size and restart the Excel, the font in the address bar is changed no matter whether the text is new or already existing. Looking forward to your reply.

Sincerely,
Mandy
