    Hello

    Can anyone help I am on vista using word 2007.

    My problem is that when I try to increase my font size from 12pt to 72pt it goes really small that I can barely see it on screen. It does this with every size 12pt to 14pt gets a little smaller and so on.

    Does any know how I can fix this?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes it is true for every font I have.

    The font I was using was just Arial.

    It goes to 72 on the version of word 2007 at my work.

    Thanks

    Could you be be in zoom mode e.g. 10% instead of page width or 100%
    Menu choice - View, Zoom...

    It may not be that, but worth the ask, me thinks.

    The other thought is printer driver or lack of.

    It is not the zoom issue.

    Could be the printer driver. Will check that later today.

    Thanks
