Yes, but it requires using a script. Do you use Acrobat or the free Reader?

OK, so here's how you do it. Create a Measuring annotation and select it by clicking it with the mouse.

Then press Ctrl+J. A "console" window will open. Paste the following code into the lower part of it:

var spans = selectedAnnots[0].richContents;

spans[0].textSize = 20; // you can change the 20 part to the desired font size

selectedAnnots[0].richContents=spans;

Now select all of the code (with the mouse or keyboard) and press Ctrl+Enter.

It should edit the currently selected comment to the desired font size.

You can now right-click that comment and select "Make Current Properties Default".

Any new Measuring comment you will add from that point on will have this new font size by default.

Sorry it took me so long to respond… I am on a MAC and I think I am doing something wrong because I am unable to get the console window to open. Can you still help?

How so? Did you run the script? What were the results?

PS. When you reply by email it posts all of your personal details on this public forum. You might want to avoid doing that. It's also against forum policy... I've removed them from your last two replies.
