    In Word 2007, are there keyboard shortcuts for the "Increase Text Size" and "Decrease Text Size" options on the View Options menu in the full-screen reading view? Is there an option to set or apply a default text size for this view?

    I don't see any built-in shortcuts to change the text size in the full-screen reading view, but you can configure your own. (Bear with me if you already have some experience creating customized keyboard shortcuts... the first few instructions will sound familiar.)

    First, click the Office button, Word options, Customize (or right-click the Quick Access Toolbar, Customize Quick Access Toolbar, Customize).

    Navigate to "Keyboard shortcuts" at the lower left-hand side of the screen and click the "Customize" button. The Customize Keyboard dialog will open.

    On the left side, you'll see "Categories." Scroll down and click to highlight / select "All Commands." Then navigate to the "Commands" section on the right side of the dialog. Scroll down to ReadingModeGrowFont (to increase the size of the text on screen when you're in reading mode) or ReadingModeShrinkFont (to decrease the size of the text). Click to highlight the command you want.

    Next, click in the empty area underneath the words "Press new shortcut key" and press the key combination you'd like to use, such as Alt ] or Alt [ (just as examples). If that key combination has been assigned to another function, you'll see the current assignment at the left side of the dialog, about 2/3 of the way down. If it hasn't been assigned, you'll see "[unassigned]."

    If you like, you can assign your preferred key combo even if it already has been assigned to a different function. In any case, once you've decided upon a key combination, click the "Assign" button and click "Close," then OK out of Word options.

    The new key assignment should change the magnification of the text on screen when you're in reading mode.

    Does that help? Let us know.
