Not that I'm aware of that are Compressor-specific. (I agree, with your complaint, BTW…particularly with respect to the menu preview windows in job actions.)
Alternatively, go into Systems Prefernces>Universal Access and try out some of the zoom settings.

Thanks Russ. I changed the Systems Preferences>Universal Access, and changed turned Zoom to on, with a max and min zoom of 1 each. That works for Apple Mail, not for Finder, and not for Compressor 4.
... So, Apple devs, what's the use of having "Universal Access" for people without eagle-eye vision, when one can't even use the ZOOM feature to enlarge text on anything but a few applications? Huh?
. . . patiently waiting for some answer from Apple employees . .. .

Sorry that it didn't help. It works for me in Compressor…but I'm running SL and laptop (Lion) is in the shop being repaired, so can't verify it works that way on 10.7.

Just checking…you did try shift Command = to zoom in…right?

Yes, I've tried
shift Command -
shift Command =
and it just beeps at me each time, in all of the 5 Compressor windows.
So, like I say, Apple Devs, is anybody listening?
Why doesn't Systems Preferences>Universal Access work for all Apple software? Huh?

Sorry it doesn't work for you. It worked for me…and in Compressor.
If you want to ensure that Apple gets your feedback, go to this link

Oh wait. It's option command…not shift command.

option command -
option command +
works by zooming the entire desktop, but then all the outside edges are lost, like the dock, and the sides of the windows which were close to the edges of the desktop area. So that method isn't a solution to simply increase the text size in a window. But thanks.
People have been complaining about this to Apple for years now, as I see when doing a Google search on the subject. ... but nobody really seems to care.
Ah well, I'll use the link you gave to request an enhancement to Apple. Then fade away. lol.

Well, guess we folk with not-too-good vision will simply have to keep on trucking the best we can, eh? We can't enlarge text, so as a result we can't use software like Compressor like the rest of the population. Sad to say, especially with a company like Apple . . .
Yeah, well I gave the Apple Compressor Team my feedback, just like I've done the last 3 months with other things, then of course the feedback from us all melts into the either, and we never really know if anyone reads it, like they say. Me thinks not. This is the only feedback I'll ever get, I'm afraid:

Yes , I agree, Compressor is a good software but interface is probably left over from DOS time, before Microsoft discovered Windows. Some guys in Apple have forgotten the year is 2012 .
