Resize text in drop down list?

New Contributor

I am busy setting up a spreadsheet in which I use drop down lists to select the text to put in certain cells but when I click on the drop down list the text in the list is very small and I cannot read it. How can I increase the text size without having to change the size of the cell I want to add the text to?

Afraid drop-down box in data validation is not configurable.

Resize text in drop down

Go to the drop-down list.

Click the right mouse button.

The "Format cells" window appears.

Click Orientation.

Go to the text controls Check the box "Fit to cell size".

Click OK".

 

This will automatically adjust the text to the size of the cell.

 

I would be happy to know if I could help.

or change the zoom factor with VBA

Actually it is not possible as Mr. Baklan has already written to you.

But with VBA you can workarond it.

You could also do it with a combo box as a workaround.
