Fixing the reply box font


Active member
What do I need to edit to make the text in the quick reply box the same as the forum default? I've tried fiddling with Style Properties: Form Elements > Text Controls, and setting the size to 1em, 100% or leaving it empty, but neither seem to work . Tried it with Textarea: Focused, too. I assume I'm looking in the wrong place, so any tips gratefully received.

This one works for me:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> editor_contents.css

Edit the font-size, at the top of this template:

body, td, pre
    @property "messageText";
    font-size: 11pt;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
    line-height: 1.4;
    @property "/messageText";
    word-wrap: break-word;
