    Hey everybody,

    I am a Mac newbie. I just bought the new Macbook with 2.4ghz and 2 gig of ram standard that was recently released.

    My goal is to switch completely to a Mac except for the few apps that require windows so I am using parallels when on the road.

    I have one question that I can't figure out. I purchased both Iwork and Office 2008 for Mac.

    When Excel or Word opens everything seems really small on my screen (cells and font are tiny). Is there anyway to fix this other than zoom? :confused:
    Thanks in advance!

    do you mean everything is really "zoomed-in"? Or are the cells really small and a really small font size (say, 6 or 7)?

    It sounds like you need to set the default zoom setting on excel and word to be nearer to your visual comfort zone. Access the preferences from from within the programs.
