I cannot find any Zoom function, and SDL online help returns 0 results.

Is there any way in Editor view to zoom in to the tiny text on my screen?
It is legible. I can see it. It would just be nice to have it a little larger.

TIA

How to enlarge tiny text Oct 1, 2012

There's no Zoom function, that's why you won't find it in the Online Help.
Solution:
Go to Tools>Options>Editor>Font Adaptation, enable “Adapt font sizes” and define the font size you are comfortable with.

If you want to learn more about font sizes and display in Studio, I blogged about this topic at Signs & Symptoms of Translation. Happy reading!

Edited to add: I see Claire answered at the same time, so now you've got two replies for the price of one!

Hi Allison,

This is what I was told for Studio 2009:

To expand the font, go via Tools>Options>Editor>Font Adaptation:

As it says here, it makes the text easier to read but has no effect on the generated document.

Ignore the Custom language fonts, this is destined to be used for unusual languages that have to be presented in a particular type of font, Cyrillic for example, or the characters don't come out correctly.

Hope this helps,

Claire

PS. @ Emma: Snap!

It's the minimum size that enlarges text, not the maximum Jul 10, 2017
