OS X V10.7 Lion :: Any Way To Increase System Font Size?

Jun 22, 2012

These old eyes really need bigger fonts on my beautiful MacBook Pro. It is so easy to do in Windows. Why would it not be possible with my MacBook Pro? All the menus, tabs, icon titles, etc. fonts need to be bigger. It is not ergonomically correct to have to sit so close to my MacBook Pro.

IMac :: Any Possibility To Increase Font Size On System?

Dec 29, 2010

I'm new to IMac and I did a quick search and found nothing. I got an IMac less than 24hrs ago. With the IMac I find that I struggle to read things even with my glasses on. Is there any possible way of changing the system font so I can make it larger? Trying to read things on the imac is actually giving me a headache because my eyes are straining so much.

I'm using FireFox which is great because once you make the page larger (cmd & +) it remembers so when you go back there the page is still large and readable but things like the toolbar is unreadable. Some sites I've been on even with the page zoomed in some of the writing remains tiny and unreadable. I have the 27" IMac and to have the toolbar font so small on such a big screen seems very silly to me because it's unreadable.

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.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Scrolling Results In Font Size Change

Apr 25, 2010

I have a new macbook pro. Scrolling, i.e. 2-finger, on the trackpad often, but randomly, results in font size changes (e.g. in Safari, mail, etc.); in word and powerpoint it often changes a word or paragraph to subscript or superscript. This also happens often with cursor movement on the trackpad, i.e. single finger sweeps. It appears that trackpad usage is randomly triggering command+ or command-.

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  

Info:
iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Printer is Canon MX850

Software :: Cannot Change Base Font Size?

Jun 18, 2010

I have now had a nice 27" 2560x1440 pixel Job for about 3 1/2 weeks, but I can't stop it using a base system font which renders letters on screen at about 1.5mm high. One of your threads gives this answer: click on the backround, go to view, view options and set the font size.Yes it does set the font size used in the screen icons, but the font used in the window it opened remains resolutely minute.To compose an email, I must set the font to 24 pt, but then forget to reset it before sending the email. The zoom function does not seem to be available in composer.
