Toolbar List Boxes Too Narrow to Display List Items


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0


Sometimes the width of a list box on a toolbar in Word for Windows is too narrow to display a long name. For example, on the Formatting toolbar, the Font list box may truncate the following long font names so they all appear as "Garamond Classic Extras":

Garamand Classic Extras Light

Garamand Classic Extras Book

Garamand Classic Extras


You can modify the width of the list boxes on any of the toolbars using the following instructions:

  1. From the Tools menu, choose Customize.
  2. Select the Toolbars tab. This tab activates a toolbar modification mode for all the visible toolbars.
  3. Click the toolbar list box you want to resize to select it. A dotted line appears around it. For example, to resize the font list box on the Formatting toolbar, select it by clicking it once.

Note: Click the actual toolbar in Word, outside the Tools Customize dialog box.

  1. Point to the right edge of the list box. When the pointer changes to a double vertical bar, two headed arrow, drag the list box to resize it.
  2. In the Tools Customize dialog box, choose the Close button.
