how do i change the font size on reports

I'll help ensure you're able to change the font size on your reports, @hassgeo.


At this time, QuickBooks Online (QBO) isn't able to change the font size of the reports. The font that's showing up is the default set up in the system. However, I've got a workaround that you may consider.


You can manually zoom in or zoom out the display screen of the report to either increase or decrease the font size. To increase it, you can hold the CTRL key and press the Plus sign (+) on your keyboard. To decrease it, go back to your keyboard and press CTRL and the Minus sign (-)


Also, you can consider exporting the report to the Excel file and change the font size from there. Here's how:


  1. Run the report you want to view.
  2. Click the Export icon, then select Export to Excel.1.PNG
  3. Then, change the font size from the Excel file.

I'm adding this article for more guidance: Export reports, lists, and other data from QuickBooks Online.


I know how seamless your work will be to have an option to adjust the fonts directly from the Reports page. Rest assured our developers are continuing to improve QuickBooks to deliver the best experience and cope with your business needs.

how do i change the font size on reports

Hello.  If you are wishing to change the font size for all Reports... Go to the top and select "EDIT", then "Preferences", then "Reports & Graphs".  At this screen, now select "Company Preferences".  Once this opens:  Click OFF the checkmark on "Default & Formatting for Reports"... then click on "Format...".  Once new screen opens, click on "Fonts & Numbers" tab.  Then click on "Change Font" (just like you continuously have to do for each Report you had been running cause the print is sooooo tiny.  Then select your preferences (ie:  Ariel, Regular (saves ink), Font 12 or 14).  Reply "OK" to this and your future Report fonts will be this.  Next questions to confirm this:  "Change all related fonts?"  YES, "Report Format Reference" screen OK, "Preference" screen OK.  Done.  Best of luck.... :)
