@webfork: Yes, fine now. Strange, before I got the exe.

Nice tip Alextp. Yes, Ctrl+ & Ctrl- zoom in & out at 10% increments which is very nice.

You can add the zoom commands to the toolbar also. To add them to the toolbar...
-> Options -> Customize toolbars -> 1...
... Add command buttons to the buttons list
... Highlight button then select command tab
... Search for zoom command in search box, commands will appear, dbl-click command
... Select an icon, use Hint text, or both for Zoom commands icon or label on toolbar.

You can change font size. In the commands list (F1), find two items: Zoom in, zoom out. For them, press F9 inside commands list. And set any hotkeys. Eg Ctrl+Num+, Ctrl+Num-.

I'm still using v6.22 stripped down, see my post above... not sure how you'de like to make the font larger but I can see atleast 2 ways -> options -> fonts, or the zoom value at bottom (100%) with a few standard choices and custom zoom. I use Leopard with Tango for the interface, I don't see an icon to zoom in & out via an icon (like NP+) but SW looks fine for my eyes with Tahoma 12pt for TEXT. The ability to easily zoom smaller text is one reason I use NP+ anymore.

Hello & Thanks,
Every year I download Synwrite to see if it ALLOWs to enlarge FONT yet .
But no such luck.
How about later in 2017 ?

@smaragdus Even if history.txt misses some info, it may be micro updates. Eg, fixes for 2nd monitor for some dialog; fix for command line params. Changes which big, are all in history.txt.

In between versions 6.31.2504 and 6.31.2506 was another one- 6.31.2505. It seems that even for the developer it is hard to keep its own change log up to date:
it does not include (so far) any information about the latest versions.


smaragdus 2017-01-07 22:06

With the pace of these torrential updates it is hard to keep this program up to date- *billon* updated it a few hours ago and now there is a new version- SynWrite 6.31.2510.
