    I have a small Numbers spreadsheet that has the text all set to Arial Regular 10-point. When I Print (either Open as PDF or to paper) the printed text shows up in a super-tiny unreadable size. It would be a 1- or 2-point font, if such a thing were possible. Other Numbers spreadsheets I have don't do this. What could I be doing wrong?

    odd. seems like it may be scaling the page to a certain size or something, had you checked the document preferences to see if there is anything obvious?

    Ah! The Sheet Inspector shows a "Content Scale" of 25%. That's probably it. It's greyed out, though, I can't change it. Any idea how to fix it?

    Found it! I needed to go the Print View. At the bottom of the window is a Content Scale slider. I have no idea how that got botched, I've never used the feature before. It's rather hidden.
