  I have a bunch of .pdf files that I would like to have printed out. My problem is this; the text size after it gets printed out is too small for my old eyes to read (heck it's too small to read even on my monitor screen). Is there a way to enlarge the text size before I have them printed out so that when I have them printed out the text comes out nice and large ? If so, how do I do that?


Thank you

I don't know of a way you can increase the size prior to printing without some major time consuming conversion steps. But most if not all .pdf viewers I have seen, have the ability to zoom within the document on screen.
