You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.

Mellel 3.3

RedleX has released Mellel 3.3 with a wealth of new features, plus a number of bug fixes. The word processing app gains a new comments feature, which can be exported to rich text format and Microsoft Word .doc format and then imported back (saved as an RTF file). The update also significantly enhances the app’s Find and Replace capabilities, including the addition of a list of recent searches and easier ways to save Find Expressions and Find Actions. Mellel 3.3 also overhauls the Find Set dialog (which collects the search and replace Find Actions macros) to make it more useful. (For more information on these new features, be sure to read this blog post.) Other changes include improved font matching with RTF import, smarter auto titles, improved rendering of table of contents, and automatic crash reporting. ($39 new from RedleX and the Mac App Store, free update, 100 MB, release notes)
