I found a workaround but I still would welcome hearing from others on my posted problem. Thanks

The \boxed command is designed to make the box fit snugly around its contents. If you want to make a bigger box then you need to give it some contents (which you can make invisible in various ways). For example, \boxed{\phantom{\vrule height15pt depth5pt width20pt}} will give you a square box with sides 20 points (of which 15pt are above the baseline and 5pt below): $\displaystyle \boxed{\phantom{\vrule height15pt depth5pt width20pt}}$.

Did a copy and paste. Getting the box, but it's telling me what font it is (Courier New).
