MacBook Pro :: Font Size On 17 Is Too Small - How Can I Increase The Font Size

Jun 4, 2010

I'm trying to increase the font size of my mac, but I can't find it anywhere. I should be really simple to do so I'm probably missing something. On windows you just right click the desktop > appearance and bang. How can I do it on the mac? Oh and I don't want to increase the font of safari or finder, i already know how to do that, what I'm looking for is a way to make all fonts bigger (including menus)... just like you do on windows, make all fonts 1.2 times bigger.

OS X :: Font Type In Leopard Too Small

Oct 30, 2008

I am quite new to Macintosh and struggle with the very small fonts in Leopard.

I use a mbp 15" with the native resolution and a second monitor.

I adjusted the font size in the preferences to a bigger font.With the finder and some software I am very sadisfied now.But there are still problems here and there.

When I use quick look in the font size is so tiny (small excel files), that even with the lupe function the fonts can not be read properly.

The same happens in other software, as the standard smallest font, used by leopard is just to small.

Is there any proper way, to adjust this globally?

Mac Mini :: 46" TV As Monitor - Font Viewable / Too Small

Jul 29, 2008

I have a Mini that I am going to be using as an HTPC. I would also like to use it just to surf and check E's and general stuff like that. My question is that if I am sitting 6-8 ft. away from a 46" TV will the font be viewable or will it be to small (or fuzzy) to be a practical surfing set up. Anyone have any experience with this type of set-up? TW - the TV I am looking at getting is a Samsung Touch of Color LCD.

Intel Mac :: Safari Font Too Large?

Jun 6, 2012

I have set my zoom to default in safari and the font sizes in Preferences should be set to the default.  In most websites I visit that have a navigation bar at the top, I can't read even read the word within the button. The font is abnormally large.  When I use the zoom font only feature it doesn't change much.  When I use the regular zoom commands, all the graphics zoom like normal, but any the font of any of the links remains huge.  So large that a lot of websites are unusable b/c all the links run together. This issue is on an 10.7 using safari 5.1.

I'm using the newest IMac. And the problem is every time I put data using number (iwork) for accounting, the font is very very little almost unable to see by normal. I must pinching my eyes a little bit to see it clearly. Should I change something in setting and how? and this is happen when using safari too.

OS X :: Font In Firefox & Safari - Rogue Font Has Hijacked My Web Fonts?

Aug 1, 2009

I just got some internet going again after having moved. I've had my new Octopus for a few weeks tho. So much to my surprise, I open up my gmail account and it's practically unintelligible. Some weird cartoon like font is my default font. As far as I can tell, all the default fonts are activated and all the settings point to the activated fonts, but this is driving me absolutely F__KING bonkers. Has anyone ever had this problem? Now to be fair, I did install some fonts from a semi questionable font disk a week or two ago, so maybe some rogue font has hijacked my web fonts.

Software :: Converting A PC Font To A Mac Font For OS X?

Apr 26, 2010

Recall, but can't locate it now, a freeware utility that converted PC fonts so that they were compatible with the Mac OS. This goes back a few years to earlier operating systems, both PC and Mac. I just downloaded 4 PC fonts I'd like to add to my current collection. Now running OS 10.6.3.

Software :: QuarkXPress 6.52 Failing To Print Files (Verdana Font)

Jun 25, 2010

When printing from PPC or Intel Macs running 10.4 or 10.5, Quark fails to print files containing Verdana. On 10.5 Macs, the file prints, but substitutes Courier. On 10.4 Macs, the file fails without notification. It just disappears from the queue. I've tested copying the text to InDesign CS3 and it prints just fine. I've tested printing to four different HP LJ models, they all fail the same. One printer (HP LJ 9050) kicks out an error and requires a reboot: 49.60FF. Copying the font(s) from a Mac that prints fine does not work. I've thought about trashing the Quark preferences, but am waiting for a window.

Intel Mac :: How To Increase Font Size In Printing Document From Webpage "print" Link

Apr 10, 2012

The website where I pay bills online has a hot link that says "print" and when I click on it, the printout is in a teeny tiny font. 

The document that I print after paying each bill is the confirmation of the payment transaction.  But it's almost too small to be read without a magnifying glass. 

I can't find where or how to increase the font size of the printout.   Firefox preferences doesn't include any sort of font size preference to choose from;  and my printer application in Settings doesn't list font sizes to choose from or to set as my default size.     

PageSetup allows me to choose a paper size, but not a font size.  

My computer is an iMac G5;  MAC OSX  10.6.8 My printer is a Canon MX850

MacBook Pro :: TrackPad Changes Size Of Font

Dec 10, 2010

I just got a new MacBook Pro 15" and am still trying to get used to the one piece trackpad. (My old MacBook had a separate button). The main irritation is that, depending on how I move my fingers, I inadvertantly change the size of the webpage and font. I'm not even sure what I am doing to cause this, but is there a way to "lock" the trackpad so this does not happen?

MacBook Pro :: Trying To Get An Idea Of Font Size On A Hi-res 15" MBP?

Apr 30, 2010

If you have a 1440 x 900 15" MBP and you reduce the screen to 80% in Firefox or Safari I think it's very close to the font size you'll find standard on the hi-res screens.

Then to get an idea whether or not you're pleased with the font size try using your notebook at this setting for a few days.

My initial experience with the small fonts on the hi-res screens in the area's were the fonts couldn't easily be resized I didn't like it at all the first few hours I typed on it -then- I started to like it, the fonts are smaller but sharp and crisp I was getting sold on the idea of the hi-res screens. Finally, after a few days using the laptop for long periods of time I found my eyes where "much" more strained, not because I couldn't enlarge the fonts on the page I was typing on it was everything else; menu text etc ... glancing and refocusing to view the smaller fonts became tiring on the eyes, making them feel dry/heavy.

I then went back to the 1440 x 900 screen and the eye strain disappeared. I wanted to buy and like the hi-res screen, but not doable for me.

This post was meant to help anyone who's trying to decide what to do but isn't near an Apple Store to take a look for themselves.

The above font size should also be similar.

*** Keeping in mind it will look more sharp and crisp on the hi-res display.
