I have not seen a setting to change the size; however, I just use the "Set as default" option on the right-click menu for objects. For example, I'll add a text box to a screen and format it to be the font & size I want all my text boxes to be. Then simply right-click the text box and select "Set as Default Text Box". Now anytime you add a text box in your story file, it will be formatted the same. This works for any object (shapes, captions, etc).

Hi there Bruce,

Just wanting to make sure that you're right-clicking on the border of the "box" itself and not the text in the box. If you right-click on the text, you're not going to see that option.

Here's what it should look like:

Let us know if you're still not seeing this option in the menu.

Hi there, Bill!

Thank you for reaching out! Your post reminded me of this similar discussion that covers how Storyline calculates font size when the slide size changes.

A few ideas in the meantime!

  • You could quickly increase the table font size with the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+>
  • If you need to create courses with a custom design, I recommend saving the Storyline project as a template: Using Custom Templates
  • Use slide masters to set the default themes, colors, fonts, text, and objects for slides throughout the course: Using Slide Masters

Somewhat embarrassing, but I think I've figured out the issue. I was trying to set a text box as default after I'd set the font size I wanted, but before I'd added any text. Once I'd added text, the option appeared, which makes some sense. I see from Joselina's screenshot that they were doing the same thing.
