Suppose I want to use a large Apple LCD monitor at its native resolution to get the best clarity, but I want all text to be larger. In other words, I get lots of screen real estate for icons and graphics, but I want the text sized more like a monitor run at a lower resolution. Do I have to change font preferences for each application I use, one application at a time, or can this be done globally? If an application doesn't have a preference setting for the font it uses, am I out of luck or is there likely to be a plist file I can edit? I am asking on behalf of friends with small-text-reading difficulty. Is there some reason why it is silly to do what I'm suggesting? Thanks in advance for advice about this.
