I was looking at the charts in the Larkin collection but the print was too small to read to make them usable.  In trying to find a way to make them bigger, I stumbled on how to do it by moving the ball up and down on my mouse.  I wish that Logos would make this more obvious as it was by pure accident that I figured it out.

Thank you for the discovery!

This is one area where Logos used their head, though.

Some people don't have the middle roller (or even a movable mouse), so letting the people that do have a roller would simply make the other people envious, or frustrated.

Much better to just let them squint at the image and allow accidental usage.

Try the PC keyboard shortcuts:

Zoom In <Ctrl><=>     Control and equals

Zoom Out <Ctrl><->   Control and minus

Zoom to fit ? can't remember

 While the mouse wheel does indeed enlarge/shrink a chart in the resource DTGPPA:Charts, it does not work for embedded charts in, for instance, in the resource BR:SLPBHS.  So far the only way I've found to make them readable is to either copy/paste them in an image application that has zoom capability or to open the "charts" resource and fumble around in it for the corresponding image.

Not sure whether its your memory thats at fault or not, but CTRL -/= isn't doing it in the Larkin Revelation book either.

CTRL + or CTRL -  should work for Larkin.

Thanks for your observation Mark.

I had verified that zoom in and out do work in the resource DISPENTRTHCHARTS, or 'Dispensational Truth, or "God's Plan and Purpose in the Ages":Charts by Larkin. I did not try it on all image objects everywhere.

In order for zoom to work, the object must be zoomable.
