Would downloading and installing the font help?


I think it is one of the Mac's default fonts

Subject: [AccessD] Textbox Font Sizes

I am using an Access database (not of my creation), whose front end has a form with a textbox. The font for the textbox is Calibri with a size of 9, set in the properties. 9 seems to be only available in the properties, though. If I type into the textbox, it's size 9, as expected. If I paste text of a different font size into the textbox, however, and want to reformat it to match the rest of the text in the box, 9 is not available either by right-clicking (context menu) or by the standard drop-down menu on the ribbon.  If I simply type the 9 into the size box, which still works fine in Word, it changes it to 8. I don't remember having this problem before, although maybe it just never came up. I'm using Access 2013. Any help understanding this would be appreciated.
