Yes, which application are you using to type your letter? Pages or MS word?
I'm not, this is the reason for my question, I have no idea where to start!
In your question description you mentioned you would like to enlarge the text of an existing type. Where is that letter?
For instance; I tried typing a letter on my email page and tried to enlarge the font which is set at 10 but will not move to 12 or 14 as I would like and don't know how else to change it.
Oh ok so you are referring to sending a letter via email. Thanks for the additional information. Is your email currently open?
yes I think so, but that's not what I'm looking for....I really would like to know where I start to write a formal letter and to make the print larger than normal, not in capitals obviously which I'd thought of
I also want to be able to print the letter afterwards
It sounds like you are looking for a word processing software. You can purchase pages in the app store
Or you can use text edit which comes with your computer, but is very basic
No not really, surely I can write the odd letter without going to the expense of some thing that I don't need
You can use text edit which comes with your mac.
click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner and type text edit
It is a basic word processing application that will allow you to type your letters and print them
Ok I shall give it a whirl but what about enlarging the existing print?
You can click on edit from the top menu and choose select all. Then select the correct font that you would like to enlarge it to
It should look like this
Ok. thank you, XXXXX XXXXX can probably tell I'm still quite a novice learning all the time. I shall try!
You are very welcome. Its totally ok, learning is fun :)
Would you like the text to always remain in 14 inch font?
If so, I can assit you in changing the preferences?
How do I do that?....oh dear here we go again
Ha I promise it will be nice and easy
Actually, sorry no I would like tot be able to go back to the orginal
Within the mail application choose mail from the top menu bar and then select preferences
Ok thats ok, Choose edit and select all again. Then change it back to a smaller font
i'm taking note anyway
You can always change the entire text by highlighting it first and then changing the font size
Marvellous...would you believe I'm doing this as a favour for someone who cannot read very well, I think that's all thank you again
You are very welcome. Enjoy the rest of your weekend
