    Besides the zoom to 400% and the + to 150% and - to 100% on the right task bar, there is another method if one really wants to see a quilt pattern...

    If you have Windows 7 or Vista version, there is a Snip It tool. You click on the "snip it" then drag the cross bar around the image, it copies to the "clipboard" and then you can paste to Word or some other software package screen. After that you can drag the handles as large as you wish. Then save the doc. I do this often when I see one of these "dream quilts" I would like to make - like that daisy quilt that keeps popping up on the recent posts.

    Mine didn't work either just holding down the control button, but when someone else said to hold CTRL then hit the + or - key to enlarge, reduce - it worked and it's great! Woohoo!

    On my Mac I hold down the command button and then press + to enlarge the page or - to decrease it. Works great!

    Yes there is...highlight what you want to enlarge ie picture, 'copy then paste it' to write mail, then right click on it to get those little white boxes, then go to a corner to get the double arrows to stretch the picture...however, if you try to make it really big, it will just become blurry...Naomi :thumbup:

    This works for me, too....
    OR you could highlight the picture you want enlarged - COPY(CTR C) - open the MS Word program and PASTE (CTR V)...then enlarge THAT picture by pulling out the corner.

    Do you like your Mac and have you ever used a PC? I'm considering switching next time I have to update anything else.

    Also, if you want at the top of your screen, you can go to view and zoom in or out.
