Setting screen font vs. print/export font [A: text zoom coming in OO4.] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I like large fonts on my screen so I set whole-document font to 14pt. However, on export to RTF or Word, 14pt is too big.

It would be helpful if there was an option to scale down fonts for export. Any plans for this or something similar?

That would be really helpful. I love OO and use it regularly. This or a "zoom" feature would be great.
 
This feature has been requested by many people for YEARS now! It is one of the few places where Omni has been unresponsive. Awhile ago the company said they did not implement because of the problems with scaling some non-text items in outlines (can't remember the exact wording). All that said, apparently zooming will be a feature in OO4. Who knows when that will come out, but hopefully within the next 6 to 9 months.
 
I'm afraid that OmniOutilner is obsolete. Too much time to update, to develop.. I love this app and sometimes I feel like that. This feature is a common request. Keep waiting.
 
One can easily install a button on the OO3 toolbar which toggles the font size of the 'whole document' style back and forth between a screen size and a print size.

Edit the first two lines of the following to match your preferred sizes (mine are 16pt for screen and 12pt for print), save it as an applescript, and install the script on your OO3 toolbar.

Each time you click it the font size will switch.

Code:
property pScreenSize : 16
property pPrintSize : 12

tell application id "OOut"
	tell documents
		if (count) < 1 then return
		tell attribute "font-size" of style of item 1
			if value is pPrintSize then
				set value to pScreenSize
			else
				set value to pPrintSize
			end if
		end tell
	end tell
end tell

Rob: Thanks! That works great.
 
Rob -
I downloaded your file on this and installed it. It works perfectly. Don't understand why the good people at Omni didn't formalize this ages ago (but then I don't get why we don't have cloning either...)
Many thanks.

I especially like the iPad version, but the Mac app is, as you say, obsolete. I don't think it's changed or improved in years.
 
Is there a way to zoom the text so that the view has a bigger text.

I realize that you set the font size bigger or use the cntrl/mouse combination but I was looking for the conventional zoom function to make text on the page appear bigger while working on the document.

I looked under view, edit and window but don't see any capability.

Thanks
 
Not currently supported, but we do have a feature request open on this. Email the support ninjas to attach yourself to the request. (All other things being equal, requests with more customers attached tend to get higher priority.) Thanks!
