Suggestion Answered

Is there a way when downloading a PDF, to obtain a document with larger characters.
The letters are quite small when you have glasses and you try to read an instructable on your tablet on the work bench

Thanks in advance

FoolishSage has your answer.

Another way may be to copy the text from the PDF into a Word editor, and enlarge the font. Then, save back to PDF format.

Yep! I did not thought of that one. I'm going to try that. Or even to keep them in word format !.

Hi, Mike. Since the PDFs are generated on the fly (or can be), could you talk to the dev team about adding a "larger font" selector to the PDF page? I don't mean a fully configurable font menu, just a toggle button, or maybe a one-of-three/four size selection.

That would be a very nice and elegant solution.

I dont use a tablet but can't you just zoom in on the pdf? I frequently read pdfs on both laptops and kindle. If the letter type is too small I just zoom in a bit.
