Increase font size in Help window?
I guess I’m getting old, but I often find reading the Help window to be a bit small. I know I can hit the web button and enlarge the font on the web version but I’m wondering if this might be added in the future?
I agree! I’ve never actually needed to wear my reading glasses until now.
With the screen resolution increase and the anti aliasing it’s kinda
invetable in my opinion. One of the cool feature of Max 5 is the
ability of zooming, and you might use this feature at your advantage.

But unless I’m very much mistaken, you can’t zoom the documentation.
I second this suggestion wholeheartedly. The documentation system in Max is one of the best I’ve ever come across, but the font size is a real fly in the ointment, especially for us poor old short-sighted buggers.
Opening in a browser is a poor substitute, as you lose the ability to use the menu etc.
Please consider this a feature request,
Whilst wer’re on the subject, the file browser font is even smaller. And
would there be a chance of making the windows floating?

If I understand what you mean, for a floating window I think you can do this:

That is how they seem to do it in the ‘extras’.
Thanks Andrew, but what I meant was changing the max browser and max help to
floating windows so for example, if you use the drag and drop facility from
the browser, it always stays in the front and is accessible. The patches in
the extras folder are editable so you can add the code you highlighted but
as far as I know, there isn’t any access to the browser and max help files.
Sorry Pelado, I misunderstood what you meant.
To add to all that, being able to open the links in a new tab within the help file would be more pleasant then navigating away.
+1. And I’m not old.
