Can the size of fonts in the help files and online help files be increased? (or changed)?

*bump*

In other words, I have the same question. I've just bought an add-on module (Zerwick's Biblical Greek, and the font is so small that I have trouble reading it. I believe this module is in help file format, so if I could just increase the font size in help files, I'd be all set, I think.

Thanks.

Interestingly, I found I could change the size of the Greek text in the help file (Zerwick module) by clicking on the display, pressing Control and rolling the mouse wheel. However, this doesn't affect the non-Greek text, which is the bulk of the content.

Any suggestions about how to have more control over the text in Windows help files so I can more easily read the text of BW7 modules that are in help file format?

Thanks.

Got it. In Windows XP, do this:

In Windows Control Panel, choose Internet Options.
Click on the General tab, then click on the Accessibility button at the bottom.
Check the box beside "Ignore font sizes specified on web pages."
Click OK twice.

Now, with your cursor in the Help file display, you can hold down the Control key and roll your mouse wheel to change the text size.

Windows Vista may be a little different.
