Dear colleagues,

Please advise how to change scale in Idiom WorldServer?

If it is impossible to change scale, may I increase font size?
Will the client be satisfied that I changed scale in the document?

Thank you for prompt reply!

Which version of Idiom are you using? As far as I know, even the most recent version of Idiom is not WYSIWIG, i.e. the font that you see in Idiom is not the font that the final document will be in. In other words, you can change the font in Idiom, no problem -- it won't affect the final file.

In fact, I recall that when I used Idiom in the past, I always changed the font size to something a lot bigger and to something that showed the difference between ' and ’ more clearly (as they look identical in some fonts).
