How do I change the default setting on  the 'view scale'?

I'll try submitting this a second time - it didn't seem to go through the first time.
I have an iMac G5 (OSX 10.4.4.), my first encounter with Apple. I find that the default size that text displays on screen in the wordprocessing application is too small for my eyes (I ain't as young as I used to be ...). The text always displays in what seems to be about font 8 or 10, no matter what size I set the document font (it will print in the size I set, but not display in it).
I have discovered that I can change the display size by using the 'view scale' tab in the lower left corner of the window. Size 140 suits me just fine. Problem is that I have to change the view scale each time I open a new document.
Can anyone tell me how to change the default setting on 'view scale' ?

Welcome to Apple Discussions
You can create default documents with the settings you want for each type of AppleWorks document. I wrote a user tip, New, blank documents with your settings, that details how to do this.

  • HT204150 How do I change my default email on the "Me" contact from a Facebook email to my normal email address in the same contact?  Or at least change it for the autofill information?

    How do I change my default email on the "Me" contact from a Facebook email to my normal email address in the same contact?  Or at least change it for the autofill information?
    Perfernece for contact to change.  Do I just have to dis-associate my contact fromt the facebook account?  Is only the autofill changable?

    If you allow Facebook to access your contacts and you have the @facebook.com email alias turned on, it will add the @facebook.com email to your contact info, and because it has the fixed label of "email" it overrides every other email address.
    They didn't fix this in iOS 8.
    There are two ways to remove the @facebook.com email from your contact info:
    If you don't need your Facebook friends and their info updating your contacts, go into iOS Settings -> Facebook and turn off access to Contacts.
    If you don't use your @facebook.com email address (all it does it forward to the primary email address) you can go into the Facebook app, More -> Settings -> General -> Email -> and uncheck "Use your Facebook email". Removing it from Account Emails does not work, you have to turn it off. Once you do this, go to iOS Settings -> Facebook and turn Contacts off and on again to make it update your info. The @facebook.com address should be removed.

  • How do you change the default setting in the motions tab?

    Greetings!
    We have two macs in our editing suite. Both are running FCP studio 2. One of the macs has a default setting for the drop shadow of 2 in the motion tab. The other mac has the default setting of 10. How can I change the default settings (not as a favorite) so that when I open a clip in the viewer the default setting will always be my preference (1.5) instead of the standard 10. I also want to change the opacity to 90% as the default.
    Thanks for your help.

    Below is a step-by-step process for changing the default font in CS6, Illustrator, Mac, Mountain Lion, 10.8.2.
    There are several additiional steps needed to make this work.
    Please feel free to us this for other inquiries.
    To Change Default Font in CS6-Ai-Mac-Mountain Lion, 10.8.2
    On desktop menu bar, hold down Option key, go to GO, pull down to Library.
    Open Application Support, ~ Adobe, ~ Adobe Illustrator CS6, ~ en_us ~ New Document Profiles
    Six choices appear (you can change each that you use, one at a time)
    Example: Double click Basic RGB.ai
    A Basic RGB.ai blank document window opens
    In Menu Bar, go to Window ~ Type ~ Character Styles
    A sub-window opens with (Normal Character Style) highlighted in Blue
    Double click the highlighted name and another sub-window opens
    In left of this window, choose Basic Character Formats
    Change to desired Font Family, Font Style, Size, etc.
    Click OK when finished, widow disappears to reveal Character Styles sub-window
    Click anywhere on the blank document in order to get option to Save
    Save the document
    Close Character Styles sub-window
    Quit Illustrator
    Re-launch Illustrator CS6 ~ New document … check Font tool to confirm changed default font
    Hope this works for other "Lost Adobe Souls" like myself.

  • How can you change the default setting for the alarm for new events?

    When I create a new Event, it will create an alarm that will activate 15 minutes before the event. I'd like to change the settings so the default setting would be that when I create a new event it will activate 1 day before the actual event. Is it possible to change this? Thanks.

    Greetings, David.
    alarm...activate 1 day before the actual event. Is it possible to change this?
    Sure.
    _Go to iCal > Preferences > General >"Add a default alarm to all new events and invitations"
    _Change the current value from 15 minutes to whatever minute value you like (1440 for 24 hours).
    _Of course this will only affect NEW events. Not those already created.
    _Close the window and your done.
    Hope that helps.

  • I am needing to set the DEFAULT Print to be ACTUAL SIZE not FIT.  I need this to be the DEFAULT SETTING for the program.

    I have a couple users using Acrobat XI Pro and when they print a PDF it is shrunk to 96.08%.  I need to find a way to set the DEFAULT Setting to be Actual Size.  We are a Law Firm and the Document Numbering is being cut off from the docs due to the Shrinking.
    Has anyone had any experience in changing the DEFAULT settings of the Print Window? Can you please pass along any knowledge on how to accomplish this?  Thanks for your time and replies.

    Acrobat and Reader's Fit and Scale functions are "sticky".
    From the Print Dialog > Page Size & Handling
    Any option you choose will remain active for all subsequent documents.
    (Some features remain active until the program is quit/restarted)
    Choose Actual Size
    Do not change the selection, it will retain the setting.

  • How can I change scanner default setting.

    I just installed a new printer/scanner (hp Envy 7640).  Every item I scan is opened by Adobe Reader, by default, even scans of photos, so the format is always pdf.  I need the format to be JPEG so it can be read by iPhoto.  With my previous scanner on the same mac, all documents and photos would be opened by Image Capture, presumably be default.  That worked best for what I do.  How can I reset the scanner default to Image Capture?  My OSX is Mountain Lion 10.8.5.
    Thanks.

    Thanks for your response.  Sorry for the delay.
    I knew about the Image Capture route but was hoping to have all scans automatically opened by Image Capture  (as before) without the extra step of opening it separately.
    I really dislike Adobe Reader although I have no choice but to use it for most documents sent to me.  I'm not sure how it became the default for the scanner.
    I see that someone else had a similar question and the answer was to go through Image Capture, so I guess that'll have to do.

  • Is there no way to change the default setting for the save as directory

    I been searching but running into a dead end, no answer.
    Thx
    Russ

    Will someone, preferably from Adobe, PLEASE give a straight answer to this question. It is such an easy question and the answers seem to be bending over backwards to avoid it.
    The question is: What must a Reader user do to change the directory to which Reader, by default, points when instructed to save a file?
    The current default is the Windows "My Documents" directory. The goal is any directory of the user's choice.
    The question does not ask how to modify or attach add-ons to Windows. It is not how to add icons to Windows save dialogs. It is simply how to adjust Reader to specify a different default save-to directory. Maybe it's a line in an INI file or other configuration file. Maybe it's a registry key. But it must be something, because Reader somehow knows how to point to "My Documents." How may the user change it?
    Thank you.

  • How do you change the default setting for RTF documents from TextEdit to MS Word

    How do you change the default setting for RTF documents from TextEdit to MS Word, I download forms from the Canadian government and they use RTF as a standard, they are supposed to open as MS Word documents (Yes I have Office for MAC 2011) but when download the document it goes to TextEdit which messes up the form format. I can down load it right click and go "open with" MS Word but how can I get the default chnaged to save this step.

    Thanks I knew this, I like Safari as I want to keep everything MAC, but if I use Firefox the documents open in MS Word straight away, I was just curious if there was some setting I could change?
    In Firefox > Preferences, click the Applications tab. If RTF is there, use the pulldown menu in the Action column to pick MS Word. If RTF is not there, there are instructions here for how to add file types.

    When I download Microsoft word documents (if have word 2007), I have somehow changed the settings and it downloads them in wordpad, and the format is very bad and I can't read a lot of the document. How do I change the default setting back to using Microsoft Word 2007 to open these documents?
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == about a few weeks ago - I had tried to open some docuuments saved on a mac, my PC (which runs Windows 7), used word pad to open these, and this seems to have changed the default settings somehow.

  • How can I change the default setting for downloading photos from email?

    How can I change the default setting for downloading photos from emails I receive?  It shows the default as Photoshop Elements 4.0 and is not supported by this system.  That was my last computer!!
    Thanks,

    That has nothing to do with styles nor Pages, it is a System/Printer Driver setting.
    You can experiment to see if the Printer Settings stick with your document, but in the past this has not worked.

  • How do I change my default "SAP Working Directory" to the one I wish ?

    Hello Gurus,
    How do I change my default "SAP Working Directory" to the one I wish ?
    At the moment default SAP Working Directory to set to the following directory.
    "C:\Documents and Settings\T51273\SapWorkDir"
    So, when ever I try to download a Report/Table Contents/Spool Request, SAP prompts me to save in the above SAP Working Directory, which is "C:\Documents and Settings\T51273\SapWorkDir". Ofcourse I can change the folder in the dialogue box, but I don't want to change the folder each and every time I download a report from SAP.
    I wish to change my default "SAP Working Directory" to "My Documents" Folder. So that from next time,
    if ever I try to download a Report/Table Contents/Spool Request, SAP should prompt "My Documents" Folder. That way I don't have to change the folder at the time of saving.
    Full Points are assigned for an answer that works...
    Thank You,
    Nag.

    Hello,
    A short question about transaction SO21:
    Is this a local setting, per GUI?
    Or does this affect all users?
    I have a problem opening an attachment (Mandates).
    SAP wants to save it to C:\Windows\System32\
    I see that is stated at SO21.
    If I change that to another (accessable) location, does that affect the opening of the attachment?
    Thanks!
