    Thank you SO much! I work from home, and I somehow accidentally made my fonts smaller. The characters were so small and hard to read that it was giving me a headache. Your solution worked immediately, and allows me “on-the-fly” results where I can instantly change the font size as I see fit. You are a lifesaver!
