Thanks. So is scaling only available through properties? That seems odd to me, but of course that doesn't mean it's not true.

Thanks, again.

  I've always understood that what you get in the ribbon drop down is what
is in the font lib.

  If you type in a different size than what is there, then it is scaled.

  Not quite sure if that's what your describing.

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.
