Smile font size


In the right lower corner of the screen, just above the date and time, there is a box to change the size of the font being used. I must be touching that box often as the size of the font changes - seemingly by itself - as I type a message.
Is there a way to "freeze" the size of the font at 100% or move the box to another location?
Thanks to all for your help.

No way to "freeze" it. However, you can remove the box from the formatting toolbar.

To do that, right-click on the toolbar and pick "Customize" at the bottom of the list that will show up. Then drag the size box off your toolbar.

You can still change the size by picking Font under the Format menu.
