1) Zoom in to enlarge the text:
Press the CTRL key on the keyboard and at the same time use the scroll wheel of the mouse

2) Capture the enlarged text:
- click the Tools-menu > Basic Tools > Snapshot tool
- keep pressing the left mouse button and draw a rectangle around the selection that you like to capture
- release the mouse button
a picture of the selection is now put into the Windows clipboard and ready for a 'paste' elsewhere

3) Save the enlarged text:
- click the File-menu > New Document > With blank pages > OK, to create a new blank PDF
- click the Edit-menu > Paste, to put the copied selection into the blank page
- click the File-menu > Save, to show the Save dialog box and proceed to saving the new PDF

4) Print
- click the File-menu > Print ...

In case if you would like to preserve the enlarged text as editable text, then instead of using the Snapshot tool, you should rather select and copy the desired text and paste this onto a blank page (the 'paste'-action can take a few seconds before it gets executed).
Once you see the copied text, you can again select it and then select a larger font size (in the Properties toolbar).

I hope this was the answer you were looking for (a considerable chance that I misunderstood the question).

Best regards.

Hello Shay,

Thank you for your post. Willy, thank you for your tip as always, however, I think I may have a suggestion that will be easier to follow:

You can resize the pages themselves and scale the content using the Editor. Go to Document> More for pages> Resize pages


In the example below I have an A4 document (8.268 x 11.693 inches) which I will increase the size to B0 (39.37 x 55.669 inches). Please also ensure that 'Scale page content according to new page size' and 'keep content aspect ratio' are selected to prevent any distortion.


I hope this helps!
