I am trying to print out a pdf file in order to have a hard copy as I translate. The copy is quite small and I wish to have the hard copy in larger print. On screen, there is no problem increasing the size of the print (through View), but it still prints out small. Is there any way I can print it out in larger type so it's easier to read or am I stuck with the small type?

Thanks.

Select all text ..trasfer to Word Sep 12, 2004

Ron if you are viewing the pdf file with Adobe Reader I suggest you select all the text: under the edit menu choose "select all" and once selected go back to the edit menu an select "copy to clipboard" or "copy" and paste into your usual text editor (ie: Word). Then select all the text and change the font size. Hope it helps!

hi! normally all modern printers offer this facility. If you are using post script fonts, the quality may be kept intact. You can increase or decreas the printing size of the page or even enlarge by scaling.

Thanks Sep 14, 2004

Wow, thanks, it seemed to work fine. I didn't realize that you could click on certain buttons like that. I knew you couldn't copy and paste in a pdf by "grabbing" the text like in Word.
