1. Where and how do I fix the font size for the header on various windows, e.g. Finder, Safari on a Mac G5 Duel Drive with MacOS 10.5.8 and a 23" Apple montor?


2. What System Preferences/Cinema HD Display (23")/Resolutions should I use?  Is 1280 x 960 or 1280 x 800 correct?  Of those two 1280 x 800 files the entire screen, so my guess is that this is correct.


3. Also, I get error messages when I try to print different types of saved documents, e.g. .tiff, .pdf, .txt onto my Canon PIXMA iP4500 printer that tell me "The Output Resolution option, 600 x 600 dpi is not available when Output Resolution is set to 300 x 300 dpi.  After responding to the OK button on the error, then I can print, but printed page only covers 1/4 of the page and appears in the upper top left corner with very very small fonts!!  What is the likely problem.  I have contacted Canon and they referred me to Apple.  But I suspect that they were wrong, as this problem does not appear on my HP printer.

Power Mac G5 (June 2004), Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Hi Bruce,


    1. Very limited Text options.

    In Safari>Preferences>Appearance


    2. On the Cinema Disply...

    • 1920 x 1200 pixels (optimum resolution)
    • 1280 x 800 pixels
    • 1024 x 640 pixels


    3. I suspect it's a setting in the Print Dialog, tough to say where since every Printer is different.


    But it also matters what APP you're printing from.
