Does anyone besides myself find the process of doing this non-intuitive?

I couldn't even figure out how to do it until Mark mentioned it in his video.  Now that I know how to change the size of the font when printing, it seems quite painful to use.  Typically, I want to print/export something so I select print/export.  Then I remember that the font size needs to be different on paper compared to the screen, so I've got to exit the print window, change the view font, re-open the print panel, print the doc and remember (hopefully) what the font size for that panel was prior to starting to print and restore the setting.

Could you please consider adding a setting for printing fonts rather than utilizing the same setting for both the screen and the printer(s)? 

Another thing I find counter-intuitive is the fact that the font size in the print/export panel only affects certain elements in the panel and not the printed output.  In an ideal world, you could use this to control the font size in the actual print out.  If it operated that way, I'd be one happy camper.

However, all gripes asides, its wonderful to be able to print again inside Logos.

Thanks.

know this doesn't address your request, but there is a wiki page which might help: (for other which might view your Post)
Print/Export , look under Print Preview and under the 3rd main bullet for info on changing font side.
see Changing the Font size subHeading in Print/Export

Thanks for pointing out the proper instructions on changing the font size in the wiki. Might be helpful for others if there were a dedicated bullet to changing the font size in the print out. I'm not sure I would have looked in the print preview area for instructions on how to do this had you not mentioned it.

I agree!

Thanks Steve.

 

Assuming that others feel like Mark and myself, lets hope Logos can turn around a more intuitive font sizing implementation just as quickly. Cool
