Increase or Decrease Font Sizes in HoudahSpot

When searching for files, you sometimes want to zoom in (= increase font size) to see the details. In other cases, you want to zoom out (= decrease font size) to get the big picture.

HoudahSpot allows you to adjust the font sizes of

  • the Results pane (in list view mode)
  • the Text Preview in either the Details pane or in a separate window (Window > Text Preview).

Just do the following:

  • select the window pane you want to adjust the font size in (Results or Text Preview)
  • got to the View menu and select “Increase Font Size” or “Decrease Font Size”
  • For Text Preview, you can also control-click within the window and select Increase/Decrease Font Size from the context menu
