I noticed a user at the copier today, using the blow up function to
try to enlarge the comments that he had printed out at the end of his
excel worksheet. He commented that he could not change the font for
the comments. I went back to my desk, and was able to replicate the
issue...

In short, you can format comments for on-screen viewing (and
presumably when you print comments "in place"), but if you print out
all the comments at the end of your document, you apparently can't
control the font/size/formatting/etc. The only thing I could find that
made a different to how it printed was the "page zoom" or "fit to X by
Y pages", but that makes the rest of the worksheet print out wrong.

Any ideas? Is this a known issue, and/or by design?

My computer is Win2k w/ Office XP, the user is running WinXP & Office
2003. Same thing on both machines and various printers.

Thanks,
Szkrad
