Enlarging Text on Command Prompt

I have an older student with bad vision, who'd like to enlarge the text on the Command prompt.  He sees the ribbon icons well, but not the Command line or the other lines in the Command area.  Any suggestions?   I told him about rigging the monitor resolution real low, but that won't make the text large enough for him.   -paul

Never mind.  AutoCAD Help showed me how.  

Enter Options

Select Display tab

Select Fonts button in lower left

Change the height to the maximum which is 14

Hi, Paul.

If I understood you correctly, you just want the command line text to be larger. For that, do the following:

at the command line, right-click > Option > Display tab > under Window Elements pane click on Fonts > change the font, style, and size to anything that works well for you (and your student).

If seeing well is still an issue, changing the colors might help as well (generally, yellow text on black background have a good contrast).

Cheers,

Edgar

Thanks.  I hadn't thought about the colors.  I'll see if that helps him, too.  -paul
