Here's something that just occured to me, and it's coming in real handy.

I was sitting here trying to match up two points in FSDS and having a hard time seeing them, when a bit of a unique solution hit me.   Smiley

Fire up FSDS (or Gmax in this picture) and open a project.  Now go to "Start/All_Programs/Accessories/Accesiblity/Magnifier"  The top part of the screen will then become a magnifier to enlarge areas of the screen where your mouse is.  Undock the window, put it where you like, and off you go!  It's easier than zooming in and out all the time.  In fact, you may never have to even expand again.

Tell me what you think...  Grin

This is a little tidbit worth disseminating, especially for us with not-so-young eyes.

It suddenly occurs to me that on two monitors, you could open the magnifier on one and leave your cad program open on the other!  This has much farther reaching implications than I orginally suspected...  Wink
