Is there a way to make the font bigger?

    How can you increase the size of the font on the register?

    Hi Jim

    To change the text size, click MONEYDANCE – PREFERENCES and use the dropdown next to FONT SIZE to a larger value. Close and re-open Moneydance for the change to take full effect.
    You may also wish to change the THEME on the same page to say HIGH CONTRAST.

    Hope this helps.

    Tried that, but from what I can tell, it didn't change the size of the characters on the screen. I think that is for when you print the register. I have trouble seeing the small size font on the computer screen.

    What Derek has suggested definitely works for me. But only once I have closed and reopened Moneydance. I rely on being able to change font size - in my case to decrease it to fit on a very small laptop screen.

    Hi Jim

    Print font size is set under MONEYDANCE – PREFERENCES – PRINTING
    The GENERAL tab is were you set the screen font size.

    After you increased this setting to say +8 did you restart Moneydance?

    Yes, that worked. Sorry it took so long to respond. The program froze and I couldn't close it or switch back to the internet. Had to shut down the computer and restart it. When I opened the program, the font was huge enough for even me to see it. Thanx for all your help. Note: When the program froze, I couldn't even open the task manager to close it. Couldn't even switch to the internet or to other programs. Never happened before with any other program. Weird?
