IMac :: How To Adjust Toolbar Font Size

Jan 9, 2010

I have purchased my first Mac a IMAC 20.5" 3.06 GHz. I had been a PC User for over 25 years and am having a bit of difficulty in setting up the everyday Toolbar Visuals. The main problem I have is that I cannot find any means to increase the size of the font on the toolbars and would also like to zoom the default size of displayed Web Pages.

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.

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.

OS X :: Can I Adjust The Font In Preview?

Jan 3, 2011

So I'm trying to adjust the font in a PDF in Preview. I can't do there a way? I also realized that I don't have Adobe....I have Adobe Digital for downloaded books but I guess that's all it's for.

I went online and all I can find is Adobe to buy.

So, finally my question....can I adjust the font in Preview? Zooming doesn't work for me...won't bore you with the reasons.

Or will I have to buy Adobe to get that function in PDF's?

If you can't tell I'm new to the Mac, coming over from Windows for 12 years!!

OS X Yosemite :: Can't Adjust PDF Line Size?

Dec 11, 2014

I have been writing a book using Text Edit RTF for composition, and then exporting to PDF.

Before Yosemite, when I changed the width of the RTF writing window (say, from 65 letters per line to 75 letters per line), and then exported to PDF, the PDF reflected the change in letter count - IE the PDF now would show 75 letters per line, just like the RTF did.

Now, with Yosemite, the letter count stays the same in the exported PDF no matter how many letters per line are in the RTF before export.

This is a big problem for me because I was formatting the pages based on 70 letters-per-line and now I am getting PDFs that have 90+ letters per line.  This means that all the headings that I had at the top of pages are showing up a few lines either way from the top. This messes up the look of the pages and makes it harder for the reader to spot topics they want to focus on.

Any way to get the letter count to stay the same in the PDF export as it is in the RTF/Text Edit page before export?

OS X :: Irritating Copy Protected Fonts - Can I Screen Them Out Of Font Toolbar

Jul 26, 2009

Some free fonts that i have downloaded refuse to be saved as PDF's due to copy protection issues. When downloading new fonts I now look for info on this, but I have downloaded many before and some are annoyingly PDF resistant ! Can I disable all fonts that are copy protected in one go so they won't appear in the Font Toolbar? or alternatively, can I disable the copy protection segment of font? Fonts are for personal use but would like to print them off.

OS X :: Increasing The Toolbar Icon Size?

Jul 8, 2009

New to Macs and struggling a bit with the high res/ average eye sight combo.

I've managed to get most of my apps text sizes ok for me to see (though FF skews things up a bit), but I find my toolbar icons and text size to be a bit small for me.

Two main apps cause me grief. Mail and Office. I can't seem ti find anywhere where I can increase the size of the toolbar icons. In mail i can use Large icons, but that doesn't affect the toolbar. In Office (mainly Word/Excel) I can't seem to find anything at all.

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.
