Comment Boxes Are Black

Posted by cadonn on October 05, 2000 9:33 AM

Why are the comment boxes black and can't be read? I have a user that when she opens any excel documents, the comment boxes all appear black. Even when she tries to create a new comment - it is black as well.

She can right click and choose format, colour, fill and change the colour so she can edit. But she has to do this for each comment. Some of her documents have a lot of comments and she does not want to select each one. All her features are set the same as mine so I don't understand.

Help Please,

The comments font, colour, size etc is controled
by your windows ToolTips settings,so if you change them there, all programs will be
affected, not just Excel.
ie. right click Desktop / select appearance
and select tooltips = change settings here.



NB: Win9x as for NT ?
