How do I increase the font size for PowerDesigner diagrams?

I would like to increase the font size for Activity Diagrams, Class Diagrams, etc. I have tried right-clicking on graphics, "Format/Font", then selecting a larger font size. The system accepts and saves the new font size, but nothing happens in the graphic. Is there some other system setting preventing this action?

    When you adjust symbol fonts, beware of one thing - you can change the font for several different chunkd of text on the symbol, listed on the left. The first option is always Stereotype - if you want to change the font for the Name, that's the second option in the list.

    I think I finally got it:

    1. Open Tools/Display Preferences

    2. Select the graphic type you want to affect (i.e. 'Activity")

    3. Select "Format"

    4. Click the "Modify" button, then the "Font" tab

    5. Select the "Symbol" you want to modify (Stereotype, Name, Comment), then select a new Font, Font Style, and Size

    6. On the way out, select All symbols, Selected symbols, or New symbols (I used All symbols), the OK
