Changing the Font Size

Users are now able to change the font size themselves in mTAB by adjusting a few settings under Global Preferences. Changes in font size will apply to text and labels in the mTAB application as well as the data results in the spreadsheet view.

This allows for more flexibility, so each individual user can customize their experience in mTAB. With a large variation in monitor sizes and display preferences, each user can control how large or small their font size will display in mTAB.
