Hi Roslyn

You can, but not exclusively for RAH only - You can change your PC Display Font but ALL fonts will be affected but I often find increasing the font across the board is helpful as it can all be very small!.


Another suggestion is to switch between standard & full screen mode by pressing the F11 key on your keyboard.  This allows you to make full use of the screen space.

Sorry Luke - which part of the menu - I have never spotted anything in the menu before?

So if you're using Chrome:

1. Click the three dots on the top right-hand corner

2. You'll see a "Zoom" option:

3. Click the +

Hi Luke.  Sorry, I didn't realise that you meant the browser menu - wondered later if that was what you meant.  Some interesting findings.  Yes, I can use the menu options for the browsers Chrome, Firefox and Opera and use Zoom and it works.  This is despite the fact that I don't seem to be able to use Ctrl+ to do the same thing when in Reckon.  I also use a keyboard (Microsoft Ergonomic) which has a zoom key which I can use successfully on every other page apart from Reckon.  However, I now can see that the zoom function through the browser menu will work.
From another perspective, it is quite interesting to see this is now another instance of where you can do things through the menu option which you cannot get in other ways.  I speak here particularly about printing where I can achieve the result I am after at times, by using print from the browser menu rather than using Ctrl + P or by clicking on the print icon.  What I am talking about here is that at times I can "zoom" the printing to make it larger, by going through the browser menu.

It is likely that when your mouse-cursor is 'inside' the Reckon Accounts application, any keyboard presses are being interpreted as being with respect to the Hosted application and not the browser keyboard shortcuts.

Interesting suggestion, but alas, it does not work for me.  For any other Reckon screen, Ctrl+ works, but as soon as I am in the company file, it does not work, no matter where my cursor happens to be.  However, by going to the Browser menu, I can use the zoom function, or else Ctril+ before opening the actual Company file.  Obviously another of those windows vagaries.  At least I now know of one very easy way to zoom, and a second slightly slower by using the browser menu.
