Zoom Text Widget
When using other Microsoft Office products such as Excel, the Zoom function in the lower right corner of your view adjusts the display of the entire spreadsheet. In Microsoft Project, however, the Zoom function adjusts only the Project timescale, and not the text size of the project view.
Project Widgets’ Zoom Text Widget provides a simple tool that allows you to "zoom" your entire project view to increase or decrease the size of the text as needed.
Here's how it works:
- In the Project ribbon, select the Project Widgets tab to view the Zoom In and Zoom Out icons:
To get your free copy of the Zoom Text Widget, click the download button below and fill out the Project Widgets request form. We will immediately email you the Zoom Text Widget.
- Click the Zoom In button to increase the size of the text in your project; click the Zoom Out button to decrease the size of the text.
Please click Download to download the software.
Your free widget from Project Widgets includes all source code which you can view and change to meet your specific needs. If you are running Microsoft Project in a Project Server environment, you can also deploy this code to the server by copying the toolbar, view, table, and code module into the Enterprise Global.
