Is there a way to increase the font size for the text in the help files? I find it difficult to read the help files in Numbers when I’m looking for information on how a function works. Thanks for any light you can shed on this.
I have a great deal of trouble reading the text in the help files.
So there are two places where you can find the descriptions of functions in Numbers. The first is at the bottom right when you are typing a formula. There's great information there, but it is in small print and doesn't give you much space to be able to read it.
Fortunately, you can get to the same information in a way where you can adjust the font size and have tons of space to read it.
Go to the Help menu in Numbers and select Formulas and Functions Help. This opens your default browser and takes you to https://support.apple.com/guide/functions/welcome/web. Here you can see all of this information in your browser with all of the controls you are used to in the browser for adjusting size and zooming in on the content.
You can search for a function here. Or, you can click on Table Of Contents, and then Functions, and then List of functions by category. This gives you a great list of all of the functions with little short descriptions. Then you can click on a function to dig down into the details and examples.
