Terming the mouse type-laden reports “fine print that was kind of a standing joke at the board meetings is all of us were reaching for our glasses and trying to read”, Mentley appeared to accept the fiction there was no alternative to the itty-bitty numbers.
But what if there was an alternative? (Kind of makes you wonder why none of these geniuses figured that out!).
Turns out, there are easily three ways to modify QuickBooks reports and print them in a larger, easier to read font.
Once your report is on the screen, click the Modify button at the top left. This opens the Modify Report screen. Click the Fonts & Numbers tab.
Click the Change Font button. Note that Column Labels is highlighted by default. You will later have a choice of making the change for only Column Labels (or for any other selection in this list), or for all related fonts.
Change to the font style and size you'd like. In this example, 10 pt. type is selected.
A dialog box asks if you want to change all related fonts. Answer Yes if you want all fonts of a similar style changed. Say No if you only want the fonts for the Column Labels (or any other selection from this list) changed. Click OK.
It can be done!
