How do I change the size of printed text when printing from my computer?

RELATES TO:

  • Epson printers and All-In-Ones
  • Application point size, text size and font size settings on the computer

EXPLANATION:

You need to select the text or font size in the application you are printing from, not in the printer driver. The font size is controlled by your printing application, it is not a feature of the printer driver.

To change the font size, refer to your application's guidance on a font size or an enlarge/zoom/scale feature. As an example, see the instructions below to change the font in some common Microsoft applications.


Microsoft Word 2003 (or earlier)


  1. Select the text you want to change.

  2. Open the Format menu and select Font. A Font window appears.

  3. Select the font settings you want to apply to your selected text.

  4. Click OK.


Microsoft Excel 2003 (or earlier)


  1. Select the cells that contain the text you want to change.

  2. Open the Format menu and select Cells. A Format Cells window appears.

  3. Click the Font tab.

  4. Select the font settings you want to apply to your selected cells.

  5. Click OK.


Microsoft Office 2007 (Word or Excel)


  1. Select the text (or cells) you want to change.

  2. On the Home tab, in the Font group, do the following:


    • To change the font, click the arrow next to the font name and choose a font.

    • To change the font size, click the arrow next to the font size and choose the appropriate size, or click Increase Font Size or Decrease Font Size.


Note:

If your application does not have such a feature, you can use the Reduce/Enlarge feature in the Page Layout tab of your printer driver.
