Does anyone know how to increase the font size of a form/report property sheet? I find it hard to read being a tiny font size of probably just 8pts.

OK so this morning I'm using a laptop which has Access, albeit the 2003 version, and I'm playing around with it.

The best I could do was the highlight some text in a form and Allt O to bring up Format then d for Conditional Formattting and bold all the highlighted text.

Sadly, every field has to be treated thus so it's a pretty bad suggestion. Annoyingly, I can format the relevant Table in two clicks but it doesn't impact on the form.

I've worked on Access since the 2003 version and never found a way to do this.

The best you can do is to press the Control key and scroll the mouse wheel away from you to increase the size of the whole display.

Thanks for that, Sage Lout. In Access that function doesn't work. All that happens is that the form/report you have open in design view scrolls up/down.
It may be possible to enlarge screen text from Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display (Win7), or use the magnifier. However, both functions have disadvantages. The former renders rather large desktop icons, for example.
I do appreciate your contribution.
