This has always been a pain..100% too small 150% too big.

Anyone got a step by step to put a 'tweener size in the menu??

Much appreciated.

Um no it's on a 30" - I CAN and do work at 100% but there has to be a pretty straight forward hack for this.

Zoom

Could you use Universal Access's "Zoom" feature?

Hit Apple-Option-8 to turn it on, then hit Apple-Option-= as many times as necessary for desired zoom level. Hit Apple-Option-_ to zoom back out.

No - if they can offer 75% and 100% and 150% then 125% is a not a big deal I'm trying to save strokes here not jump through hoops.
It gets set and forget. 100 is just okay - 125 would be ideal

Try separating screens

This has always been a pain..100% too small 150% too big.
Not exactly what you are looking for. It sounds like you have a dual purpose layout used for both printing and screen work, or that the original layout was designed for a lower res monitor.


If you can get into the innards of the program, you can set up a set of parallel screen interfaces for that resolution of monitor.

Monitors have changed dramatically in the last couple of years. It used to be that one would design for 640 x 480 and 800 x 600. 800 x 600 is a safe minimum now. but it puts people with really nice monitors in the soup because they need binoculars to see the screen. I end up having to stay on a CRT so that I can change sizes to design for individual clients. Flat screens do not scale well.

The other thing that has happened is that the aspect ratio of screens in general has changed greatly to facilitate entertainment (wide screen). This really causes a need to separate print and screen layouts.

I checked scriptmaker, but the levels are hard wired in there also. :-(
