I have made some good format file for my prints. I change the font size before i save it but, it does not keep the changes. How do you make changes to the font size it will keep?
When you say "format file", are you referring to the sheet format? If yes, you need to save the sheet format after making the edits, then Reload this sheet format in any drawing templates and save them also. See What's the difference between a sheet format and drawing template?, and maybe Why aren't the changes I made at Tools > Options > Document Properties saved when I start a new Part?. Please respond back and let me know how it goes.
I'm going to assume that you are using a template file as your base and revising the fonts?
Edit the template and save the template.
I open the sheet format file and make the changes to the font. I save the sheet format file. I then start a new drawing, selecting that format and the font is back how it was. I then opened the sheet format file and the text is no changed. Not sure why it is not saving the change. It saves all other changes I make to it.

That's all explained in the blog post I linked to above.
Sounds to me like you aren't doing the changes at the right place.
Drawing template = .DRWDOT
Sheet format = SLDDRT
You make the changes to the background on the SLDDRT
Save the SLDDRT and close it
Open the DRWDOT
Update the sheet format inside the DRWDOT and then save the DRWDOT.
Create new drawing, should be good.
For existing files, you will need to reload the sheet format in order for the changes to take place. Once the drawing is created, what is inside it is a mere image of the template, if you do update the template, you will generally need to update every drawing accordingly manually(or with an automation program such as #TASK)
The company I work for switched their logo about 6 years ago, a year after we had moved to SolidWorks. That forced us to have to go back through every existing drawing to update the cartridge with the new logo.
Edit: The template will also need to be updated, so reload the sheet format on that one too.
