How to Modify Section Label Font Size?

Hello, I am fairly new with REVIT and have what should be a very basic question that I cannot find an answer to. I would appreciate if someone can tell me how to edit the text, font and text size inside the Section Annotation Symbol. I have been able to successfully edit the text in the Level Symbols by right clicking the family, editing and then loading, but when I try the same with the Section Symbols and then reload the top and bottom lines inside the circle change size but won't show any text. What am I doing wrong? There must be a way to have text inside the circle in order to reference sections properly. What am I missing?

Thanks for your feedback to this inexperienced user.

go to Settings>View Tags>Section Tags and you should find what you need.

That only shows 3 fields that I can edit and those are:
Section Head, Section Tail and Broken Section Display Style. None of these allows me to edit and/or add text inside the bubble(circle)...

I am using REVIT 8.1 in case this makes a difference.

YOu need to edit the family for the section tag. In the family editor you should be able to change the text size and font or create a new font label type from the type selector on the option bar.
