This probably would be a silly questions for the CAD Tool experts..... but can somebody please tell me how to enlarge the font size in SDL Trados? My eyes hurt so much by looking at the small font size for longer hours....


Thanks in advance.

T2007 and T2009 Oct 30, 2010

For Trados 2007, select View>Font in TagEditor or select the Tab slider in MS Word (depend on your Trados interface). For SDL Edit 2007, select View> Target (or Source) Font Size. For SDL Trados Studio 2009, select Editor > Tools > Options > Editor > Font adaptation > Minimum font size / maximum font size.

No faster way to do it? There definitely should be a shortcut for this for people who switch from desktop to TV/projector often.

There've been 3 major releases since the thread was started.
In Studio 2014 and 2015 you can increase and decrease font size in the Editor much faster. Go to the View tab and click on the "increase" or "decrease" icon at the far right.

You can customise your own shortcut for this if you switch from desktop to TV/projector often.
Go to File>Options>Keyboard Shortcuts>Editor and add your own shortcuts under "increase" and "decrease".
