Basic Contact Layout 1024x768 Need a Larger Size for Viewing

Hello,

 

Own Sage ACT 2010 and using a Windows 7 PC

 

Q: Can I enlarge the screen size (about 10%)?  The standard size screen is a little to small for me.
I went to "Knowledge Base" and saw an article on this (older ACT Version)…  can the above be
done, without creating a new Contact Layout or changing my computer resolution?
Aside- I do not think I can do this in Preferences.

 

Any help will be appreciated,

What is it that you'd like to be bigger?

You can customize the layout to increase the size of fields and text etc - check out this KB for advice:
http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/15332

Alternatively, you can change the sizing of fonts in the other parts of the database by customising the Font Option in Tools > Preferences > Colours & Fonts

Hello Jon,

 

What is a little to small for me is the fonts within the "Fields" (Contact Name, Company fields etc).  If I design a new layout, I can enlarge the font size, but then
have to enlarge every field. I might do this at a later point in time (customize the layout).. enlarging the entire Layout.  I also will try to import my existing ACT database of names, from my old ACT 4.0. and would prefer to stay with the original Contact Layout for this. I am not sure if it would be a problem importing the database of names to a customized layout.  I will post a new message thread, when I find the time to do all this 

 

Thanks for the knowledge base URL on Design Layout Customization.

 

Ciao,
