    I’m running into the same problem as Prashant and Sean … “Set Current Font as Default Mail” is not an available option in 8.5

    • If you cannot find the menu option you are looking for, enable advanced menus using View > Advanced Menus.

  6. If you cannot find the menu option you are looking for, enable advanced menus using View > Advanced Menus.

    I’m using 8.5 and “Set Current Font as Default Mail” is not availbale to me, even with Advanced Menues selected.

    This is because Set Current Font as Default Mail option is only available on Notes 8.5.2 version. If you aren’t using .2, you won’t find it and it’s a pain trying to change your font. After my computer was rebuilt, I was thrust back into 8.5.1 and now I can’t edit my font to send messages. It’s ridiculous.

  9. After enabling advance menus also, Default font option is not available

      Thank you for responding!

      Unfortunately, as noted I am not getting an option to Set As Default Font.

      I appreciate it though.

    I get an option to change it, but it doesn’t stick. Even after it has me confirm what I’m changing it to and click “OK”. Every time I create a new email, it defaults to something I didn’t pick.

  11. Doesn’t work in 8.5.3

  12. Marcolino permalink

    It was so useful! But it doesn’t work in 8.5.3 as there is not the option “set as default font” :-(((((

  13. Thank you!! I have been trying to figure out how to do this for a long time, it has been driving me nuts. So glad to get this figured out.

  14. Information you'll need permalink

    Open a new message, edit the font and size. Then click the “text” tab and scroll down to “set current font as mail default”

    Thats working 🙂
    File > Preferences > Basic Notes Client Configuration > Default Fonts

  16. In Lotus 8.5.3 does not appear “Set current font as mail default” but you can do is this:
    Open a new message, click on “text”, “text properties”, configure your text, and then in “Paragraph styles” save a style, this style is already configured and you just have to select it in new messages. It works for me, i hope you can enjoy it!.

  17. What about when replying to messages? This only works for NEW messages, I need to set default fonts for replies as well. Please help.
