Text size on Streets and Trips map
mclainfarm
Hi, new member here. On Streets and Trips 2009 is there a way to make the text stay larger, other than going in options and changing it every time you load S&T? Thanks for any help

I believe that is because you are opening S&T from the default icon. It always defaults to a template named 'New North American Map.stt' stored it the S&T template folder.

One way to solve that is to make the changes you want and use Save as and the File type drop down to choose Templates. Then save to the name listed above. You may need to find where that file is located first though to be able to update it.

A simpler solution is save as any name you like in a location you select. Then use that file each time you open S&T. You can even drag a shortcut of that file to your desktop for easy access. Remember to save your future changes to a different name though.
