When replying to an email in outlook 2010, how do I write in a specific color/font within the original message text?
Alternately, in word, how do I say, write in X font/color regardless of the format in the surrounding text?
Amazingly I have just figured this one out - I am so pleased cause it's bugged me forever too.
Click to reply to the mail in question then:
You can repeat this to create a number of colour themes for different circumstances, but now simply select your newly created colour theme and all text you have written in reply and any text you start writing from now will take on this colour without affecting other text on the email. Perfect!
Perhaps I don't understand your question, but why don't you just select the text you want to modify and change the color with the normal color selection menus? Works fine for me when I insert sample text into original message text in a reply.
Sorry for the semi-transparent window; I couldn't take a screenshot with it fully active.
