Making it larger

magazineWe often get letters from older readers telling us they would like to have our magazine with a bigger print. However, there is a limit to how big we can go and still have enough space for worthwhile articles. So we are offering this practical solution from a reader in Kentucky.

My mother-in-law loves the magazine, but her eyes are failing and she is finding it harder to read. We solved the problem by printing out the articles in a larger type. It is quite easy. Here’s how you do it:

  • Go to the web page and choose the article you want to enlarge.

  • Left-click the mouse and drag it down the text. (Or just key in “Control-A,” which will highlight the entire article.)
  • Right-click and choose “copy.” You can now exit the web site.

  • Open a new Word document.

  • Right click and choose “Paste.” The document will now appear as a Word document.

  • Using “Control-A,” select all text.

  • On the tool bar, select the font size you need. Sizes 16 and 18 are good.

  • Print the document.

It doesn’t take very long, and my mother-in-law can now once again enjoy the magazine.
