change resolution tex ton my computer letters are small i couldly read them

if you want to magnify the screen to see small letters, try this : hold CTRL key and press the +/= key (near the backspace key) to magnify the whole screen, and CTRL -/_ key to make it smaller again.

more permanent solution is to right click anywhere on your desktop background where there are no icons, and set your video properties to something smaller like 800x600, or 1024x768, yours is probably higher like 1680x1050 ....

or with windows 7, just right click anywhere on your desktop background where there are no icons, and click "personalize". then click on where it says "display" on the left side of the window, and change the setting from smaller to medium or larger.

you can change these settings anytime you like, so try these solutions until you find a combination that works the way you want it to look.

did that help?

How do insert page numbers on page maker automatically?

To have AdobeĀ® PageMakerĀ® automatically number your pages, if the template isn't used, place a page number marker on the Master page of the document.
  • Go to the Master Pages by clicking on the page icons with the L and R on them at the bottom left corner of the screen.
  • Using the Text tool, draw a text block in the general area for the page numbers.
  • On the Mac, press Command+Option+P or in Windows, Ctrl+Alt+P.
  • Depending on the page you are on, the page marker will show up in the text block, LM on the left page, RM on the right page.
Auto page Number

  • This text can be formatted like any other text on your pages.
  • Select the Pointer tool and move the copy block into the correct position.
  • Click on a page icon to go to a page in your file and the actual page number will appear.
  • If the page icons do not have the correct page numbers on them, go to the File menu, select Document Setup and change the Starting page # field to the correct starting page number.

The text on my inbox is super small as is the message text - I can hardly read it. It just started today. Please help

Hello. You might try pressing both the "ctrl" and "+" keys on your keyboard at the same time. This will make text on web pages appear larger and easier to read. You can also use ctrl and - to make it smaller.

I hope this is what you were looking for.
