Nice to meet you, *****!

I want to know how to enlarge the font size when using Word on the IPad.

Please follow these next steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size.
  2. Adjust any of the following:
    Bold Text: Display the text in boldface characters.
    Larger Text: Turn on Larger Accessibility Sizes, then adjust the text size using the Font Size slider.

I've tried that and nothing changes. In the past I've just picked out a larger size directly on Word's page, but that's not working now either.

Hm, I see, does the issue occur on all documents?

Customer Replay

Just when using Word.

Ok, on all documents in Word, right?

Customer Replay

Yes, Perhaps if I knew how to highlight the text that would help?

Alright, I see. Allow me a moment, please.

  1. Please open a Word doc on your iPad. Use the handles to select the text that you want to format.
  2. On your iPad, select the Home tab . In the Font group, do the following: - To change the font size, tap the Font Size box and then tap the font size that you want to use.
    This basically means to double tap on the screen and choose what text you'd like to change, you then will see a blue handle that you can dragon all over the document.
