Default What fonts do you use when writing reports?
I'm just doing some report writing for my first client and he's asked me to think about the fonts etc, I usually use Ariel size 11, what does everyone else use?

Is there a general rule for report writing or is it just down to personal preference?

I think Ariel and Times Now Roman are two of the most basic and generally used. Just easier on the eyes. Georgian may be in the list too..and I have seen a list somewhere..can't remember where.

It's usually Ariel or Times New Roman for me. Size depends on the report and how many pages it is, but ranges from 8 to 12, but 11 is the standard.

I like Georgia and Garamond - I can't wait until more people have Vista and Office 2007 because I love Cambria and Calibri. My preferred font sizes range from 10 to 12 and usually 8 or 9 for headers and footers.

I have to agree with you Julia, this is why I'm asking, but I guess I have to hold out from using it until I know my clients are using the same.

For now I'll stick with Ariel unless otherwise informed. thank you XXXX

I like using Ariel and Tahoma; they are easy to read and font size should be between 10-12 dendending on the size of the report.

Also, all computers have these fonts loaded.

I use Ariel, Tahoma or Verdana and typically stay away from Times New Roman...I think it can be hard to read sometimes- especially in the smaller font size.

I think it depends on the type of report you are writing. It should be different for creative, literary, engineering, teaching, reports etc. If it is a creative, report I like to use Ariel, Tahoma, Calibri or Veranda. However, if it is a report for a literary review, experimental reports and other social science reports I like to follow APA Guidelines of Times New Roman or Courier New in 12 point font.

Good luck and hope you find what you need.
