RoboHelp Entry Screen Size

My entry screen in RoboHelp is quite long (15'?) which results in the text size being quite small (see attached). The resulting text in the generated/output file is as expected.

If I increase the % in the View section of the Edit tab, it helps somewhat, however I now need to scroll right to get to the rest of the screen.

Is there a way to reduce the width of the work space that will also result in a larger text size without the need to scroll? I've been using RH for several years and have never had to work with text this small.

Changing the size of the workspace will not change the size of the font. I'm guessing that other apps show fonts to a size that is OK for you, otherwise you could simply alter your Windows settings.

Is it the Design Editor that is the issue or the TOC that you are showing? You can sort of cheat the Design Editor by creating a CSS with all the same styles but a different size for the fonts. Work with that but output using the real CSS.

Peter,

I've set the % View to 133. I do have to use the scroll bar to access the whole screen, but at least it's legible.
