Is there a way to increase the font size in slide notes in Captivate 8? It is much smaller than in Captivate 7 and I don't see any way to change it. Thank you.

You cannot change the display size of the Slide Notes in Edit mode. 

But you CAN enlarge the size of Slide Notes that are selected to be CC text displayed at runtime.  That option is provided in the Skin Editor dialog.

I have found that you can decrease the size of the text in the slides notes by highlighting the text and simutanesouly hitting Shift '-' key. Hitting the Shift '+' key will restore the text to it's largest size...however, if you copy the text that you want to enlarge into a word document, paste it, increase the font size in word, then copy and paste it back into slide notes in Captivate, the increased font size will transfer into the current slide. Unfortunately, the increase font size will not remain in the project after you exit that slide, but it will remain long enough for you to make your edits with a larger font size.

Pasting text from MS Word directly into Slide Notes is not recommended.  MS Word's formatting has been known to cause corruption.  Pasting from Notepad or some other plain text editor is the recommended procedure.
