Font Size

Font Size Cycle

Cycle the font of selected cells through customizable sizes by repeating the shortcut keystroke below. Font sizes within the cycle can be edited in the Excel > Format > Fonts section of the Settings dialog, and are directly accessible from the Macabacus > Format > Font > Font Size menu.

Increase Font

Increase the font size of selected cells by one point. Continue increasing font size with successive shortcut keystrokes. The native increase font size operation in Excel applies a single font size to all cells in the selection, which can result in unexpected font size changes. Macabacus is smarter, incrementing font size for each cell in the selection, regardless of initial font size.

Increase Table Size

Increase cell font, height, and width proportionally. This differs from simply increasing font size in that cell width is adjusted automatically rather than fixed.

Decrease Font

Decrease the font size of selected cells by one point. Continue decreasing font size with successive shortcut keystrokes. The native decrease font size operation in Excel applies a single font size to all cells in the selection, which can result in unexpected font size changes. Macabacus is smarter, decrementing font size for each cell in the selection, regardless of initial font size.
