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.

User Group 7.1 Pricing

Send Article to a Friend

All the hubbub about Apple charging for System 7.1 this fall actually did some good. Roger Heinen, Apple Senior Vice President and General Manager, announced that Apple is giving user group members a special promotional price on System 7.1 until 01-Feb-93. To take advantage of the 20% price reduction (that makes the price $27.95 instead of $34.95) you must:

  • Call 800/769-APPLE before 01-Feb-93.

  • Identify yourself as a user group member.

  • Provide the person chained to the telephone with the name of your registered Apple User Group.

  • And finally, provide mailing address and payment information.
