How do i change the font size in TaxCalc for the Mac

Article ID: 2351
Last updated: 18 Mar, 2016

On occasion users may want to change the test size inside TaxCalc on a Mac. There is no facility inside the program to change the settings, any changes have to be made in the Operating System.

Change Display resolution

if you have a Mac that permits you to change the display resolution, this may be the easiest way. The Displays preference pane of System Preferences lets you scale your display.

Go to System Preferences > Display, The check the Scaled option.

Changing the display size here magnifies the display making all items on the desktop appear slightly bigger according to the resolution you chose.

Please Note that changing the scaling here away from the recommended size may result in the display not looking as sharp.

Set up zoom

  1. In System Preferences, click Accessibility, and then click Zoom. Then choose either of the following options.
    • To zoom with keyboard shortcuts, select Use keyboard shortcuts to zoom.
    • To zoom with your mouse or trackpad, select Use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom.
  2. Choose where the magnified content appears with the Zoom Style pop-up menu. To display it in a window near the mouse cursor, choose Picture-in-picture. To display it on the entire screen, choose Fullscreen.
  3. To set options for zoom or the zoom window, click More Options.

You can also turn on zooming by pressing Command (⌘)-Option (⌥)-F5 and selecting options in the Zoom section.

Zoom with keyboard shortcuts

To zoom in, press Command (⌘)-Option (⌥)-Equal Sign (=). To zoom out, press Command (⌘)-Option (⌥)-Minus Sign (-).

If you chose Picture-in-picture zooming, a window appears near the mouse cursor with the magnified image. If you chose the Fullscreen zooming, the entire screen displays the magnified image.

Zoom with a mouse or trackpad

To zoom in and out, hold down the modifier key you specified while you perform the scroll gesture.

For example, if you have a trackpad and used the default settings, zoom in by holding down the Control (^) key while you drag two fingers up on the trackpad. Zoom out by holding down the Control key while you drag two fingers down on the trackpad.

If you chose Picture-in-picture zooming, a window appears near the mouse cursor with the magnified image. If you chose Fullscreen zooming, the entire screen displays the magnified image.
