This is certainly a feature you can request. Since TSgal is out on vacation, I'll post the link for feature requests for her: http://www.filemaker.com/company/feature_request.html
A work around that works for some is to select "Enlarge Window contents to improve readability" in Edit | Preferences. This is a setting that can your scripts can detect--which can be useful when popping open new windows and such.
"Enlarge Window contents to improve readability" is a feature only available on Windows OS.
has there me any progress on this? really agree with irritated.
thinking of going from 9 to 12, and thought for sure this would be taken care of by now.
I also would VERY much like to have more options between 100% and 150% -- either via more drop-down options, or a Customize box for entering any value. Thanks!
Agreed. Please add this (very basic) feature. Nearly every office product can do this by default, and it is really strange that this product (which is great in so many other ways) lacks some of the most basic elements.
Regarding this post from 2009...December 29, 2009 by by PhilModJunk: "This is certainly a feature you can request..."
Seriously?! Here we are FIVE YEARS later and still no solution to this simple request? Obviously, the link provided by PhilModJunk for sending 'feature requests' is a bogus link as they aren't listening to the most basics needs of the users that buy their software. It would also be nice if they were consistent and provided the same features like "Enlarge Window contents to improve readability" for MACS if they aren't going to allow a custom zoom size. I agree... it's really irritating and really lame.
And while we're on the subject, as display resolutions become higher and higher, some of the dialogue windows, like for calculations, script writing, etc, which cannot be zoomed in on at all, are becoming harder to see, especially in calculations, for this Medicare club fella.
When I do any calculation that is not very simple (like, a series of Cases), I start with what I need from the functions, operators, etc, copy and paste into Word, and do as much as I can there, just so I don't omit a comma, semicolon, etc. Then I save the word doc, so if I need to change it later, I have something to go back to that I can read without bifocals. - a clunky work around
