I need to change the default font-size in Sharepoint 2010 Content Editor. I've tried to set .ms-rte-wpbox {...} CSS property as suggested somewhere on web but it didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: I want to rather select (as default) the second (or another) option from font-size drop down menu than change all with CSS.

Just create new css file and refer that to default.master page after changing required styles..refer this.. http://virtualizesharepoint.com/2011/06/01/changing-sharepoint-2010-default-font-size/

  • I'd rather want to select the second option (10pt) from dropdown menu and don't affect earlier saved webparts.

  • Have you referred that link or not. It won't change any webparts. Just try out..

It's a bit late, but the entry in the css is under .ms-rteFontSize-1 to .ms-rteFontSize-8. you can set all the font-sizes for the depicted select there.

Hope it helps after such a long time.
