    it works for me---when i click the reply button or ctrl-shift-r, but if i create a "Quick Step" that does a reply, it won't use the reply font that i set up for replies, any thoughts?

    It should be noted that the problem I faced appeared similar to this but was in fact, different. Similar to other products like Web Browsers, you can 'grow' the font displayed by holding the shift key down and using your mouse wheel to display enlarged text. This would make it appear you've changed font sizes while in fact, you've simply changed how you are viewing things. Dear god that could be confusing!

    This does not work. I have tried replying to emails and it will add my name as a comment, but does not change the color of my comment. I am using Outlook 2016
