Hello all, the font, the pics and the general web pages are far too small on my monitor, I was able to permanently zoom on Chrome, however I cannot find this feature on Safari, please can someone help me? Thanks

InSafari you can go to the Safari menu item 'View' to Zoom Safari windows. Then you will noticed that there are key combinations listed for Zoom in Safari that are command button+plus symbol.

Other apple keyboard shortcuts are found in System Preferences->Keyboard, Keyboard Shortcuts and are also at Apple's keyboard shortcuts web page (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1343?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US).

Do you mean retain zoom between sessions and pages?

If that's what you want it's not a feature of Safari (Zoom is per page and only lasts until you close Safari) but you can get an extension for that.

IMO I would just suggest that you don't use Safari unless it's absolutely necessary.

That doesn't answer his question at all lol. He wants to permanently stay zoomed, not know what key combination is used to zoom in.

You can do this with a css file.

Create a text file with the following:

body {
zoom: 130%;
}


Name the file whatever you want and use .css for the file extension.

Now go into Safari Preferences Advanced and change the style sheet to point to the file you just created.

Now every site you visit will be at 130% zoom level. The 130% is what I use, so feel free to change the percentage in the css file to whatever zoom percentage works for your display.

Hiya can I ask what application to use to make the .css file because I used textedit and the file I saved wasn't available for the style sheet? Thanks.

Hiya okay I made and saved a file on textedit. I copied and pasted your info and then renamed it with extension .css and it was able to be recognised. But still I'm stuck on the standard zoom level?:(

Hiya Wolf, Safari is super slick for me, chrome slightly lags. Also some plugins dont work right. Sky news for example, I can't watch any video. And Amazon.co.uk site, I cannot seem to go back a page. :confused:

So I needs my Safari! But the font is just too small for my eyes.

Did you even read my post...

Use this safari extension

Also Sky news videos play fine for me and going back a page works in chrome on amazon.co.uk. If extensions aren't working it's whoever made the extensions fault not Chromes, there are extensions that don't work right in Safari too.

Or... if you need to customize every site you visit and want Safari to remember your zoom level for each individual site install this extension:

ZoomBySite (http://www.cerimorgan.com/products/zoombysite/)

407355

You'll find that a single zoom setting for all windows is not ideal.

IMO I would just suggest that you don't use Safari unless it's absolutely necessary.Yep. Macs using Safari have been known to burst into flames. LOL!
