How zoom/increase font size of Office 2004 "Help" text?

Font sizes can be set for Word, Excel and Entourage.  You also can zoom in
to enlarge the View of text in Office 2004 components� documents.

How does one do this with the small-font text in Help?

Respectfully, Norm

You can't.

Hi Norm,

There are a couple things you can do.

In Apple's System Preferences click the Universal Access icon. Then 
click "Turn Zoom On."  The panel shows keyboard shortcuts you can use.

A more complicated solution is to print the help topics as PDF files and 
open them in Acrobat Reader or Preview and use the zoom feature in those 
applications.

Wow!  Command option + does the trick once the mini-maxi zoom options are
set.  

The only downside is that it's a bit like takeoff with a jet on a very short
runway: a bit of a funny feeling as it swoops up.   And until you turn it
off, it feels a bit strange when you move your cursor over something. But it
works!  And command option -  reduces the zoom and ultimately returns print
to normal.

Thanks very much, Jim.

I like that for Help topics that I might wish to return to frequently.  It's
only a bit more  more complicated but gives you precise  control  with one
click over the amount of increase of the zoom (without the woozy sensation).

Thanks so very much, Jim. I can stop squinting now when I use  Office Help.


Respectfully, Norm

That's good, Jim. I forgot about that - and that it would apply to
everything on screen including Office Help windows.

Another good idea, if a little laborious.
