    I've converted to Mac, a decision that I'm very satisfied with (so far)...
    However, there is a feature in Windows that I love but have not yet found in MacOS.

    In Windows one can hold down the Ctrl. button and use the mouse scroller to zoom/change the text size fast in almost any application, like Firefox, Word, Excel, Acrobat etc. Sure, Leopard's and the new MB Pro's zoom feature is good too, but sometimes I just want to change the text size instead of having to type in manually the text zoom in Word for instance.

    Is there a similar feature in Leopard?

    Thanks!

    I don't know about Word, but in most internet browsers, it's Cmd + "+" and Cmd + "-"

    Control key plus scroll mouse wheel works on my Mac.

    On the new MBP Ctrl+scroll zooms in the screen itself, not just the text. Cmd+ "+" only works in a few apps like Firefox.

    Any help appreciated! Thanks...
