I have many records that have data in a field that I want to change the font of. So far I cannot find a batch-change option, even when they are listed in a spreadsheet-like table. Ideas?.....
Things in table view hold the formatting from form view. It is confusing. Try this for FM13+:
If you only need to do one field you can just set the formatting and skip the theme/style part. field formatting
Use the Replace Field Contents command under Records on the menubar with the following calc in the replace:
TextFont ( your field ; "font name" ). When using the Replace command you need to first put your cursor in the field you want to replace before selecting the command. All active records will be replaced.
I recommend testing this out first on a back up copy of your file since there is not an undo to the Replace command. You don't want to mess up a replace command.
Replace can be dangerous if you are not careful.
If formats have been applied to the data in the field, use the replace fields option.
If not, select a format for the field as has been recommended.
Formats selected for the data supersede formats selected for the layout.
