Change Content Scaling with a Shortcut

During a recent Zoom meeting with Adam at Faithlife, I noticed an icon on his Shortcuts bar that reminded me of a power-user trick in which you may be interested: we can change the global text size of our resources, Guides, and Tools with the click of an icon!

Normally to adjust the Content Scaling percentage we would open Program Settings from the Help menu, navigate to Accessibility, and make a selection from the drop down list. We can reduce all of those steps to one click!

  • Type this command in the Go box: Set Content Scaling to 140% (or whatever percentage you would like) (A)
  • Drag the same command from the drop down list (B) to the Shortcuts bar (C)
  • Right click on the new icon if you would like to change it to a new image and/or text (D)
  • Type this command in the Go box: Set Content Scaling to 100% (or whatever percentage you would like) (E)
  • Drag the same command from the drop down (F) list to the Shortcuts bar (G)
  • Right click on the new icon if you would like to change it to a new image and/or text (H)

Now when you want instant large print books, click the icon for the higher percentage! When you want to return to “normal” text size, click the icon for the lower percentage!
