I wanted to increase the viewing font size without changing the actual size of the text that is sent out. Is that possible?

If I go into Settings -?=> Font Size -> message font, and increase that size, then my outgoing messages are are going to my affected. But I just want the font to my larger on my display without it being formatted into the message

you could use command +

this is temporary, but you can increase (or decrease, with command - ) what you're viewing in an app... like Mail.


EDIT: ah, sorry. this only works for viewing email that's come IN to Mail...

outside of changing the screen resolution itself, the only other thing i could figure out was, to increase the font size in mail, then, after writing an email, size it down (ie to 12pt or something). not very useful...


EDIT: zoom. i turned on the keyboard control of zoom (in system preferences>accessibility>zoom.
when i hit command-option-8, everything is enlarged. hitting that key combo again, restores to normal...
