***UNCHECKED*** Gimp help browser on high rez monitor

My monitor is 3840 x 2160 on a Mac. The help browser offers great help, but it's difficult to read as the font is so small on my monitor. I can't find a way to increase the font size other than changing the screen resolution. Is there a way to do that within Gimp?

Thank you

Maybe someone can give advice on that resolution problem. If not there is the Gimp 2.10 help in PDF format here:

gimp-help-2.10-en.pdf 42 MB 1000 pages, indexed and searchable.

I use linux and compile gimp myself, using firefox to open the help. So I have no idea if this will work with whichever browser engine you are using, but 'Ctrl' and '+' let me zoom in , 'Ctrl' and '-' let me zoom out.

Hi Ken,

On a Mac it's Command + or Command - to zoom in or out. For whatever reason it doesn't work with the GIMP help browser. But now that I have the GIMP help as a PDF I'm all set.

Great software. I just need to learn its secrets.

Thank you,

PJW
