I haven't had a chance to go through your reply to me, and won't for a week
or so as I'm off to Lisbon.

However, the "mac" mention caught my eye. Have you thought to turn on
zooming in the Universal Access preferences pane in System Preferences? It
might help. You should also be able to set the default font size somewhere,
but I haven't had a chance to look for that.

Upper to lower case − try Word Service:

using Mountain Lion and whether it will work with that, but it's worth

Hi Tim,

I'm sure many members must have the habit of hitting the caps-lock instead of the cap. How useful it would be to have a little physical 'pip' in relief on the caps lock key to make one aware which key we're using. Serves us right for thinking we're touch typists I suppose!

Zooming; have discovered that. Better than resetting screen resolution which mucks up image resolution too of course

I am using Mtn Lion; thanks for that site.

Lisbon eh? It's all go innit?
