How to increase font size of pdf doc before taking a print out?

Date: 02 Jun 2015   Posted By: Vandana     Group: General Questions    Category: Other Questions   

My boss sometimes gets email attachments of invoices, conference schedules, registration forms, etc. A few of these will be sent in a pdf format. The problem is that the font size tends to be miniscule so when I take a print out it is difficult to read. Is there any way that I can download the pdf on the computer, increase the font size and then take the print out? Also, will increasing the font size create any disturbance in the arrangement of the text (example, if it is tabulated data)?

If you find it difficult to read the text on screen, you can zoom in to get the text readable. But, since you need to change the font for a legible printout, I am sorry to let you know that no such option exists.

I did this before but I cannot recall it correctly. It can be done by any of the following methods.

You can try changing the paper type to A1 instead of A4. In printer you will be having A4 paper but as you have choose A1 it may print in bigger size.

In windows printer properties, it will show you the paper layout. There you can select only a portion of paper to print. Select the invoice portion and it will print them in magnified size.

I tried the above methods in Windows 7 OS and my printer is HP.

Other ideas:
You can zoom out invoice and take screen shot and do print out.

You can use PDF manipulation tool like Foxit to increase the font.

Some PDF Documents comes with very small fonts which may stain your eyes while reading them for long time. But you can edit that particular document with any good PDF Editor and change its font size.
I would like to suggest you to for Acrobat Pro which is famous for as PDF Editor as we all know Adobe Acrobat Reader is most used PDF Reader because of its fast performance, etc. but this time it is awarded as best pdf reader too.
