font size and what is MDI?

I need a larger font size than I now have to be able to read it better with my old eyes


Also the ability to move forward or backward in contacts is disabled because of MDI settings. What is that and how do I turn that off?

Re: font size and what is MDI?

Depending on which screen you would like to increase the font on, it would be done through the following options:

1. Tools > Preferences > Colors and Fonts tab: these will apply to varying screens such as Notes, Calendar, Task List, etc..

2. Tools > Design Layout:  this would apply to the main Contact Detail screen (or Company, Opportunity, Group detail).


For more information on editing a layout, view this article: KB Article 15332



The message "button disabled in MDI mode" is due to the Startup View preference "Open each view in its own window" being enabled.  This preference is located in: Tools > Preferences > Startup tab.
