Apple Mail (Mavericks), Viewing size of list is too small.how do you increase the size of the email message list.  The font is too small, I can hardly read them.

In Apple Mail, using Mavericks, how do you increase the size of the email message list that displays on the left side of the screen?
The font size is so small.
Thanks.

Thank you for responding.  After investigating and checking further, it was clear that only one of your suggestions changes the font size of the list of emails, also called the In-box.  And that is the display resolution.
However, changing the display resolution affects the dots per inch of everything, everywhere and makes it larger.
Given the high end fee Apple charges for their products, and the generally well developed software they provide, it is hard to imagine they have not corrected this obvious slight of effort on the inbox text. At times Apple's "one-size-fits-all" and "it's our way or no way" mentality astounds me and makes me want to run back to Microsoft.
Evidently this is a well known mistake, which has yet to receive any attention.
Again, thank you for your effort and assistance on my behalf.

  • How do you increase type size in menu bars and panels?

    I recently abandoned my Mac Pro 1,1 for a shiny new Mac Pro cylinder running Mavericks 10.9.5. I have paired it with an LG 27" IPS display. The reason I am using the LG is because I was frustrated that Apple pays absolutely no attention to the pleas of their pro users for a non-reflective display.
    And now I find that the type in the menu bars and panels is so small that it literally causes me eyestrain - and that I can't increase the type size. I am older (62), but I still need to use my Mac to survive. Unfortunately, though, it appears that Apple designers have again ignored the needs of their pro users -  in this case, older ones.
    I have been a graphic designer and a producer of technical and marketing publications for over 35 years, and I appreciate good-looking design -  but the real measure of design is usability. Even great-looking design must be user friendly.
    So now I am wondering if Apple interface designers are amateurs, or if they just don't give a @#$% about their users.
    Did I miss it? Is their a way to increase type size in menu bars, etc.?

    Did I miss it?
    Yes.
    System preferences > Displays > Resolution ...
    choose "Scaled" and pick an alternate resolution.
    When you do this, text will be drawn as if your screen were actually set to that revolution, but graphics will be drawn full-scale at the native resolution.
    This feature was invented for Retina Displays, and has finally been made available for additional displays.

  • When writing an email the letters are so small that I can hardly read them. If I increase the size then the outgoing email letters are very large.

    letters are very large. I have tried changing the font but it doesn't help. This is very annoying. How can I remedy this?

    I use these settings, so try them:
    Tools > Options > Display > Formatting tab
    or
    Menu icon > Options > Options > Display > Formatting tab
    * eg: Default font: Arial
    * size 14
    Note: this sets the default font to be used in both display of messages and the font to use as default in composing messages.
    Under Plain text Messages
    * select: Style : Regular Size: Regular and colour Black
    * Click on 'Advanced' button
    * make sure all sizes - 14
    * select; 'allow messages to use other fonts'
    * Select; 'Use fixed width fonts for plain text messages'
    * click on OK
    Note: This will use the default eg: Arial to be used, but allows the display of messages to use other fonts if the sender specified them.
    then at top click on 'Composition' > General tab
    note: This sets the default composing text colour and background colour.
    under HTML
    * Font: Variable width
    * Size : Medium
    * Select a text colour for writing emails eg: Blue
    * Select background colur eg: white
    click on OK to save and close Options.

  • Hubby and I both have our own iPads, laptops, and apple/icloud id's.  We both sync everything to iCloud. Just realized that several of my email folders are appearing in his Notes, and we can't delete them.  Help!

    Hubby and I both have our iPads, laptops, and apple/iCloud id's.  We both sync everything to iCloud.  My iPad is the newest device - got it about a month ago. 
    I have created many inbox folders on my laptop in my email.  We just noticed that many of my inbox folders are showing up on his iPad in Notes.  They look like "major headings" or "categories" for lack of a better term.  There are no notes or anything under any of these categories.  We've tried to delete these "categories" from his Notes, but can't do it.  What's happening, and how can we fix this?

    If you are using a PC, log on to iCloud using Safari (rather than Explorer) to reset the photostream. Then turn iPhone/iPad photostream off and back on. I was getting the same server error as you and this advice from another blog worked for my iPhone and iPad.  But I still can't get photostream deleted from my apple tv. There does not seem to be a photostream on/off control In Apple tv 4.4 software.  I tried switching the screen saver to one of the ones that comes preloaded on the device, then back to photostream but all the old photos are still there.  If anyone can help with this, I would appreciate it.

    I would guess that the HDMI port on your mac is for output only - no input, and that's what your'e attempting to do when you attach the mac to your xbox. I looked in Mactracker and it lists the HDMI port as video output for both the 13" Retina MacBook Pro and the 15" Retina MacBook Pro (your post didn't say which one you have), so looks like that is the issue..

  • Locating email message in the message viewer list

    When I create a link to the email message and I activate it, it opens up the emall message in a separate window.  So far so good.  However, I want to locate that same email message in the email list in the message viewer, but I havne't found a way to do this quickly in the Apple Mail (ML or any other previous Mail program). 
    Does anybody know how to do this?

    It sounds like you should be able to double-click on the little vertical border at the far right of the list of messages in the Mail window.

    Hi Sunny C,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!  The "From" field should be showing by default, but you can check or change your settings for Mail with the instructions below:
    Mail (Yosemite): Set Mail preferences
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH19178
    In the Composing pane, you can set the email account that you want to send new messages from.
    Also, check the View command on the Menu bar.  View > Message Attributes should have a checkmark beside the "From" field.
    Cheers,
    Judy

  • I have iphone 4s and just bought an ebook for ibook, trouble is the font is so tiny I can't read it and the font sizer is not working? Please help!

    Hi, I have the  iphone 4s and just bought an ebook for ibook, trouble is the font is so tiny I can't read it and the font sizer is not working? Please help!

    Hello Glittergirl68,
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    It sounds like the function to reseize the Font in an iBook is not functioning properly.
    I recommend a few things here. First close all the apps that are running in the background:
    Double-click the Home button.
    Swipe left or right until you have located the app you wish to close.
    Swipe the app up to close it.
    From: iOS: Force an app to close
              http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5137
    When you have done that, restart the phone, and try again.
    If the issue persists, I would follow these steps from the article:
    iOS: Troubleshooting apps purchased from the App Store
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1702
    2. Check for app updates
    You can setup apps to update automatically in Settings > iTunes & App Store, but make sure that your apps are up to date:
    Open the App Store and tap Updates. If updates are available, tap Update All.
    If  prompted, enter your iTunes Store account information. App Store will then download and install the app updates.
    Note: Some apps may require a Wi-Fi connection to update.
    3. Install another app from the App Store
    If none of your user-installed apps will launch, there could be an issue with Apple ID authorization. Download and install an app that isn't already installed on your device to reset this information. You can also remove an app from your iOS device and download it again from the App Store or sync the app from your computer.Note: If you have installed apps using multiple Apple ID accounts, you may need to perform this step for each account.
    4. Restart the app
    If the issue affects only a single app, try closing just that app.
    5. Restart your device
    Turn the device off and on.
    6. Reinstall the affected app
    Remove the app from your device and reinstall it:
    Tap and hold any app icon on the Home Screen until the icons start to wiggle and show a small "x" in the top-right corner of the app.
    Tap the "x" in the corner of the app you want to delete.
    Tap Delete to remove the app and all of its data from your device.
    Press the Home button.
    Go to the App Store.
    Search for the app and then download it again.
    All the very best,
    Sterling

  • How do you change image size in the title window?

    I just changed operating systems to Windows 7, which meant that I had to re install Premiere Pro CS4. I am now working on a 64 bit system. Might not make any difference, but thought I would give you the specifics just in case.  When I pull up the title window to add a title to my clip, the image is about the size of a postage stamp. How do I increase the size of the image in that window?

    Thank you again for responding Hunt. I did find out what what was happening.
    I had to reinstall the program on my computer. I just upgraded to Windows 7, and I now have a 64 bit system. When I booted up PPCS4, I assumed that my settings would be the same as they were before when I had Vista installed and didn't bother to check them when I started a new project. Well, they were not. I also added a TV tuner card to my computer. I now can watch HD TV on my computer. I suppose that it is possible that somehow PPCS4 noticed that, and set my default settings to HD, rather than NTSC DV. I just merrily went along clicking the OK button and started editing. When I start a new project now, I select NTSC DV and the Title window works just fine, and exactly the way I expect it to.
    I just received Jeff Bellune's book Adobe Encore DVD 2.0 in the mail and will be totally immersed in Encore studies today. With all of his children, I don't see how he had time to write it, but I'm glad that he did. I also ordered a book entitled Designing Menus with Encore DVD. I know that it was written for an earlier version than CS4, but I will trust what you said about that. Many things are the same with some minor variations due to upgrades in the program. The basic ideas don't change, but how you accomplish them can, and usually do over time.

    Subject: how do you change image size in the title window?
    Welcome to the forum.
    That is an odd one. The Title should be the same Frame Size as your Project/Sequence. What is it's Frame Size? Also, are you perhaps doing a Title based on an older Template, that was done for a different Frame Size?
    What happens if you choose Title>New Title>Default Still?
    Good luck,
