There are actually 3 maker.ini's on my machine. Only 1 contains the
display setting (the one in the FM home directory). I modified and
rebooted and magically all my pages now have a different size font.
Worked great... Thanks for the help. 
Next problem will be in a new thread.. 
Again thanks to all who replied for the help.

Yes, don't forget that in later versions of FM, there are two locations
for maker.ini files. (Can't remember the pathnames, but it's documented
in the Online Manual on customizing frame; it's probably in Docs &
Settings\USER\Application Data.)
