For invoices, bring up an invoice click the format tab, click customize data layout, click layout designer.  Right click on a field and select properties, select font and change.  As far as I know it is one field at a time.

OOPS, in customize data layout click basic customization, there is a font button there you can use

Reports I am not sure, I have not tried, but if you were going to it would be in customize for the report - but it will only affect the report being run now, there is no way to change the default font QB uses.  To keep the report in a different font, if customize can do that, you will have to memorize the report and access if from memorized reports in the future

For reports Defaults:

Edit menu > Preferences, Reports & Graphs, Company Preferences tab, format button, Fonts & Numbers tab. Checkmark to show negative in bright red (after all, we have something like 256 million colors; you would think QB would use that by default...). Use the Change Font for your other Report Elements, from here.

This will not change Memorized reports, but Canned reports will be like this. Also, confirm Cash or Accrual here.

Hello there, @teamchambie.

 

I'm here to provide some details about changing the invoice font in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

At this time, being able to change the entire fonts of your invoice without going into each part the "Change Font for" section isn't an option for us. This is because QuickBooks want's to ensure that you can customize each part of your invoice and make it presentable for your customers.

To give you an overview of customizing templates in QuickBooks Desktop you may check out these articles: 

On the other hand, our developers are constantly working to meet our customer's needs and demands. I'd encourage you to visit the What's New section on your QuickBooks to be updated about our latest news and updates including product improvements.

 

To do that:

  1. Click on Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Select on New Features.
  3. Choose What's New.

This should get you going today.

 

I'll be around if I can be of further assistance with customizing templates. Just let me know by leaving a reply below. Have a great weekend!
