I am trying to adjust to using Logos for my devotional reading.  But my eyes have a lot of trouble with the small font size.   The problem is especially worse with the NLT translation.  The ESV and NIV have a larger font size.  

Is there a way to increase the screen font size?  I have a MacBook Pro.  But the ⌘+ keyboard shortcut does nothing in Logos 4.

On the resource menu, you can change the text size for individual resources. (The resource menu is the book cover icon).

You can also change the default size for all resources from program settings on the Tools menu.

On the PC you use Tools/Setting/Program Settings/Font Size (Percent). I assume this also exist on MAC.

Oops. Mark, you beat me to it.

I did not realize that you could change a single resource. I must have missed that upgrade.

Thanks Mark!!  That is so wonderful!  I use Logos every day so I don't know how I missed the obvious.  Was this a recent update improvement?

With that ability to enlarge the text, I am "good to go" for years to come!  :)   May think about getting an iPad now that I know I can read the text.

No, I think it might even have been there since release! It might be worth you scanning through the descriptions of these video tutorials to see if there's anything else you've missed. There's so much in Logos, it's easy to miss something useful!

Wondering about Logos 4 version ?  Logos 4.2a "Gold" released earlier today => http://community.logos.com/forums/t/30520.aspx

Mac Beta forum post for Logos 4.2a Release Candidate => http://community.logos.com/forums/t/30365.aspx

Program scaling on Mac was in some Alpha pre-releases then removed => http://community.logos.com/forums/t/17966.aspx

When program scaling is set, some Logos 4 Mac items not work => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/28263/209502.aspx#209502

In case it's not clear from KS4J's post, program scaling is quite different from text size. Program Scaling changes the size of everything in Logos 4, including the size of menus, dialogue boxes, as well as the text size. On the other hand Text Size affects only the text size in a resource.

As KS4J notes, Text Size is available in both Mac and PC, but due to problems with the Mac OS, Program Scaling is a PC only option.
