A friend and I were discussing the problems of reading emails in Eudora at different times of day. I need to make text larger in the early morning and late evening.
I found an easy way to zoom text in Eudora. The following instructions only look long because I’ve written out each step. I had to choose an amount to zoom the text so there are two to choose from.
Attached: two scripts compressed into a zip archive: Eudora zoom scripts.
- Quit Eudora.
- Open a Finder window and go to Users >[yourname] >Library >Application Support.
- Make a new folder called Eudora.
- Open that folder and make a new folder called Scripts.
Install the scripts
- Uncompress the file called eu-zoom-buttonszip. That should create two files called eu-zoom-buttons-4.scpt and eu-zoom-buttons-8.scpt. One zooms text by 4 points, the other by 8 points
- Put eu-zoom-buttons-4.scpt and eu-zoom-buttons-8.scpt in the folder you created in Step 4.
Use the scripts
- Start up Eudora and notice a new menu item called Scripts between the Window and Help menus. You can just use a script by choosing it from that menu, or go on to the next steps.
- Command click on the Eudora toolbar. A dialog appears asking you to choose a menu item. Choose Scripts >eu-zoom-buttons-4 or eu-zoom-buttons-4 . A new button appears on the Toolbar. Add the other script too, if you wish.
- Open a received email or make a new message. To make the text larger or smaller click on the new Toolbar button you created in Step 8 and choose the action you require.
