I am trying to get Times New Roman as my default font on my forms a reports.

None of the themes I have tried have it listed.

I have it in the format/font tab.

A web search shows everything from Microsoft but access.


Thank you,
Dale

Either customise the theme to use that font or create a template form and report which you can then use as a starter for all subsequent items

The theme fonts do not offer Times New Roman as an option.

Is there another way to customize a form?

How do you make a template?


Thanks,
Dale

I rarely use themes and am not an expert in their use.
However if you look at the Fonts tool on the Themes section of the Design menu, there is a Create New Theme Fonts item at the bottom.
You can add any available fonts to that e.g.
Attached File  ThemeFont1.PNG ( 4.13K )Number of downloads: 1


The new font(s) will then appear at the top of the font list
Attached File  ThemeFont2.PNG ( 10.84K )Number of downloads: 0


OR ...to make a form 'template', just create a basic form with header, colour schemes and controls in the format you want.
Save as e.g. zfrmTemplate.
When you need a new form, open that and immediately save as another name & use that instead of a completely blank form.

Similarly for report 'templates'
In fact you can take the process one step further and set up a database 'template' with all options set to your preferred defaults e.g. use overlapping windows, always use event procedures etc

One further option is to use the old autoformat wizard that was provided before themes were introduced.

Although not on the ribbon by default, the feature can still be used by customising the ribbon to include it
