In RH2019 Classic, on the Edit tab, I could increase the view to make the content appear larger and easier to read/edit.  Is there a similar option in the new UI?  I tried hiding the left and right panels but the work area remains the same.   If this feature is not available in the new UI, I would like to request it.  Thanks.

It is in 2020 so it won't get added to 2019.

I have a possible workaround, although I can't say what will happen when you upgrade to RH2020. I haven't tested it thoroughly either, but seems to work on a quick test.

 

You need 3 files:

1.  the main stylesheet you currently use.

2. a second stylesheet with larger fonts defined (maybe call it editor-view), maybe just for the p tag (Normal style), if you can handle your editor not looking exactly like your output.

3. a master page with the main stylesheet assigned.

 

Steps:

1. Assign the main stylesheet and editor stylesheet to all your topics. Make sure  the editor stylesheet appears second in the list. You can drag and drop using the bar to the left of the bottom stylesheet, if necessary.

2. In your output preset, select the master page.

What should happen is you see your editor stylesheet settings in the RH editor, but only your main stylesheet makes it into the output, because of the masterpage assigned in the preset.. 

 

Here's a side by side, where I did a blue heading colour and large p tag font for the editor stylesheet to showcase the difference vs the output generated.

You can try it out on just a topic or two, to make sure it works for you.

@Robert Shairulla It depends on what you mean by easier to read.

 

In 2020 there are various ways to increase the area. The extreme is as below. That gives you more space.
