    Just bought the 24 LED Cinema Display to use with my new uMBP. The display looks great, but sometimes it's pretty tough to read things on it because the resolution is so high.

    Is there any way to change the font size for things like Safari, Entourage, Word, etc. JUST on the LED and not on the MBP as well?

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Nope.

    You can do a zoom in with Control + Mouse scroll though ;)

    In Safari you can do Command + (+ or -) to change the text size of the current page, but not the size of all the other content.
    In Word, you can change the magnification, but again, this doesn't change the menus.

    This is one thing I miss from a PC - I know booo, booo.

    You cannot increase the font size unless you decrease the resolution, which makes the image look horrible.

    However the one work around I've found is you can change the native font size and type of mail under settings.

    Cheers.
