This forum is for the file format, not Acrobat itself.
However, the answer is to bring up the "Properties Bar".
The properties bar did not let me select a font size for text within a call-out box.
To change font size: Go to 'view', 'toolbars', and check mark 'Properties Bar'. You will now have the option to edit text within the call-out box when the text is selected.
thanks Xavier for your excellent post. It ghas helped me resolve the font size change issue. Thanks a lot.

Select the text and press control+E. You should get a tool bar to edit.
Hi @amlolan & @AGCBARRETT, it's really a huge help.
Thanks a lot.
Ah, I see now that the only way to change the font size is when the text is actually selected first. Do you know how to change the default font size permanently. The Adobe HELP states "Text font and size are based on the system default settings". Does anyone know how or where to change the "System default setting"? Thx.
This is a question for the Acrobat support forums – please post there.

Re: how to change font size in a call-out tool box?
No that doesn't change it--properties toolbar doesn't change the font size.
Perfect--that is exactly what I was looking for--thanks.
I have struggled up until today with TEXT SIZE change in ADOBE for what seems forever and now I see that the solution was here TEN YEARS ago. Well done and a big thank you!
Changing the call-ou font (colour, size, font):
- open a text editor (MS Word or others)
- insert a text with the font, size, colour as desired
- copy the text from the text editor
- open the PDF file
- create a call-out or other equivalent annotation box
- past the text
- click the right key of mouse
- make the current properties as default
that's all folks
