Hello folks,
anybody else struggling with viewing the new SDL Trados 2009??
Do you know if there are any tricks how to enlarge the text on the screen?

I have 24 inch monitor but yet viewing the new Trados is not a pleasure - the text is too small for me.
The only workaround I have figured out is to decrease the monitor's solution...

Thanks in advance for all help!

Use Font adaptation Jan 20, 2010

Go to to Tools > Options > Editor > Font adaptation and set minimum font size (12 seems to be adequate on my 27" monitor). Set the maximum font size some 5 steps larger so you get a feeling for font size in the source document. Press OK, you're doneicon_smile.gif
