Hi

If i understand the question correctly i do not think that you increase the font size with your printer. You need to increase the size from source of which you are getting the data from before you print

Example: if you wanted to print a word document, you would go to the taskbar on the top and change the font settings prior to printing.

Or do this


Open up the what you want to print

Left click and highlight either part or the whole area you want printed

Right click the highlighted area and click print preview

Change the box "As laid out on screen" to "As selected on screen" doing this will let you print all or part depending on what is highlighted

In the box Shrink to fit, change it to increase or reduce the size font that you want to use

Click print, and go to Page Range, and make sure you add a dot to SELECT

Click print

This works great for increasing the font in the printout, but how do I keep the selected print from running off the right side of the page as the font gets larger?

could you please be more specific? so I can aswer your question?
I have an all-in-one HP Photosmart Premium c-310a
I am trying to be able to print sites from the web, etc. either selections or full pages.
I noticed that if I go to page setup, I can change the left/right margins and that has some effect in moving the larger font back to the left/middle of the print?  I just can't figure out how to center larger font on a printed page?
