    Hobby Sue, thanks for the tip. That works great. You see, you learn something new every day.

    I'd like to reply about the PC/Mac question, but it probably should be a new topic. How do we start a new topic?

    I posted the question, "PC or Mac" under the GCC catagory. I can usually find the rules to post, but I have to stumble upon the "Create a new topic" link. I would really like to hear a comparison from everyone who has tried both the PC and Mac.

    For some reason, no matter how hard I try, I can't do the trick with the Ctrl and rolling the mouse over it...that's why I use the way I described above... :thumbup:

    New Quilter,

    If your mouse doesn't have a wheel on it, you can position the curser on the picture you want to see and then hold down the control key while using the plus key to enlarge the picture or the minus key to reduse the picture size. You can also do this on printing, not just on the pictures.

    Hope this helps

    How happy I am to learn these simple tricks that have been there all along and I didn't know it. That's what happens when you have a computer geek for a husband.. I have a problem and he reaches over me and punches a few keys and rolls the mouse here and there.. problem's fixed, but I don't know what he did.. and if I ask.. he happily tells me in about 3 words and then he's gone.. Still don't know anything. I need other people to teach me things I don't know.. Thank you for your help! Husbands are great, but sometimes not the greatest teachers for their wife!

    I went to the General Chit-Chat section and on the top and bottom of the list of topics there are buttons labeled "create a new topic" so I did! It is PC vs Mac and so far, contains only my opinion!

    Cathleen,
    Thx for letting me know that my thread was posted. It did not show up on my regular QB email today and I don't know where to look for most things on the board. Love the comments that are coming through about PC v Mac; sounds like most people have strong opinions one way or another. Like most purchases, I guess it depends on what you will use it for and how much you have to spend on the item.

    I didn't know that either. Wonder if it works elsewhere too. Neat! Thanks for the heads up.

    I have an AOL email address and could not enlarge the avatars either. Then I accessed my aol account thru mozilla firefox and was able to enlarge the avatars and all the print with the control key and the wheel on my mouse. I find this happens a lot. When I go to my yahoo account thru aol, I can't download anything. I hope this helps you.
