Is there a way to increase the size of the fonts?

    Go to File -> Preferences (or Moneydance -> Preferences on a Mac) from the Moneydance menu bar. In the General tab, there is an option to select a larger font size. Note that you may have to quit and restart the program after adjusting this value for the change to appear everywhere.

    My findings are that you can certainly change the font size, but the font size will change based on the number of columns in the report. Here are 2 examples. Running the current version of Windows 10 and MD2014.5

    Similar question for Linux - MD Menu font size does not reflect any changes when adjusting font size under preference. PS the +8 may need to be increased as screen resolutions keep going up (and my eyesight keeps going down)! Using 2019 3 (1875).

    Did you also remember to restart the program after making changes to this preference?

    Ethan, It is still a problem. While setting the default font size does make a change, the number of columns in a report still drives the size of the font. Two attachments, the default Font and point size is noted in the file name. I'm sending PDFs, but the results are the same whether you print from a PDF or directly from the report. The PDFs show you the difference in font size on these two reports.

    Prints fine with a 2 column report, more columns yields smaller font. Is there no way to maintain the font default in a report? Should the user manually adjust columns? Or ???
