Allow us to change the font, its size and choice of style for the to, cc, bcc and subject lines of email
Allow us to change the font, its size, and style for the to, cc, bcc and subject lines of an email. I have checked online and lots of people have this problem, no fix has been suggested. July 24, 2018
When creating a new message or meeting, the To/CC/Subject fields etc. are WAY too big. They need to be smaler, like they were in Office 2016. I guess you're going for "touch screen friendly" with increasing this size. Personally, I find the larger sizes and "Metro" feel very distracting. And now with the ribbon all white, it makes it rather boring to be honest. You could still keep some of the updated icons, but leave the ribbon colorful and accomplish nearly the same thing
Would also like to be able to move these fields around.
can you please make the default font sizes bigger in the to, from, etc. I can make mine bigger, but the other is so small its hard to see
Make the lines in the send email smaller. The to, from, subject lines are so bulky they are distracting when writing and email.
The latest update has made all of the upper section (ribbon and fields) of an email so big that it takes up half the screen, making it difficult to see a decent amount of an email message and forces constant scrolling. This is especially an issue on smaller screens. Give us the option of larger or smaller icons/fields to fit each PC's individual needs.
The To: Cc: Bcc: and Send buttons are SO BIG ... but the email addresses text is tiny in comparison. This could be better managed by using drop-down lists or scrolling down. Surely we don't need full width line for email addresses?
Also, a simple + - button on the right hand side to increase or decrease the size of text in email addresses and subject would make life easier.
Why did they change a good thing. The "To" and "CC" fields etc are too big, creating meeting request etc.
Is there a way to make this smaller, like it was before?
The new format for entering email details (To, CC, Send, Subject) is awful. Faint, takes up too much space.
Allow users to choose formats, including the one we are used to from previous versions.
This looks like change for change sake!
How about making this a skin, or a theme? I don't need a GIANT SEND TO CC BCC SUBJECT.. . I'm not visually impaired.

Revert to smaller header area for compose window, unless you guys want to walk back the ribbon. One big waste of space is bad enough, two of them is unbearable.

Since the latest update 16.0.11629.20192 (32-bit) the font size within Outlook has made the buttons too big. I opened a support ticket and this is what they suggested to get it fixed in the next release! Please fix this!
Please allow me to tighten up the spacing (To, Cc, Bcc, Subject fields) when creating a new email message. The subject area is the worst awful. Just simply allow me to use a "classic view" instead!

The new outlook has a comically large area for the To, cc, bcc and subject area. It takes up nearly half the window, compared to the old version, which was much more user friendly. Please give usn an option to revert this back if we want to!
Font size is the most critical and is an accessibility issue. Try working for 8 hours after overnight flights on a 13” screen! It’s a big issue

PLEASE fix this.It is FAR too small for my eyes. What happened to Accessibility? Having to alter the Windows system font size is a terrible workaround, as many programs can't cope with increased sizes.
This can be done by providing the respoonder to a email to choose html for the response. We used to be able to do this but I can't find a way in Version 10.

Whenever i reply to a mail the font size is automatically changed a bigger one. Please send your feedback on this.

Need to make the font in the "TO, From, Cc, Bcc and Subject" BIGGER. It's about a Size 6 or 7 font now and with my eyesight, can't read.

Area in email To and Subject line are way to small to read and there is not enough space to use a larger front. Cannot change font. Called technician and he could not find out how to do it.!
