Just a little closer

As much as I love it, the resolution on my Acer Aspire S7 ultrabook can make it difficult to work in Visual Studio.  The code is just a little too small.  While the built in zoom feature is great, you need to zoom in on every document you open, which can be a little distracting, especially since I tend to not zoom in to the same zoom level each time.

What’s a developer to do?

Enter TroutZoom by Sam Trost.  Zooming in on one file resets the zoom level for all other open files as well as for all files you open afterward.  I’ve been using it for several weeks now to get a little closer to my code.  It’s a breeze to go from my laptop zoomed in at 161% to docking and zooming everything back out to 100%.

About Josh

I signed up for a BASIC class in junior high. That got me hooked and pretty soon I started experimenting with harder languages. My college years are a blur of benders hopped up on Perl and Java and that one semester where I sunk so low that I was mainlining Smalltalk. Now I'm a complete C# junky living it one day at a time. Hello, my name is Josh.
