How do I change the font size on my device?

There really is nothing like a good book on a rainy day—or a good book on a sunshine-filled day for that matter! But more than anything, there's nothing like being able to read a book in a font size that your eyes are comfortable with. Scribd knows that everyone has their own preference, so it's easy to enlarge or shrink the font size of a book on Scribd to fit your needs.

Changing the font size on Scribd's app

To change the size of the text on the mobile app, open a book you'd like to read, tap the  'Aa' icon to bring up the 'Display' options. There, hit the plus sign next to the 'A' to enlarge or the minus sign to make the font smaller. 

If the option isn't available on the title you're reading, it may be a formatted PDF and you won't be able to enlarge the font this way. We apologize for the inconvenience. Although we won't be able to resize the text, you can make the page larger by doing a reverse-pinch: place two fingers in the center of the screen and then slide them apart to zoom in on the page.

Changing font size on Scribd's mobile website

Reading on the mobile website? Select the title you'd like to read and then tap on it to bring up the menu options. Once they're up, tap the 'Aa' button near the bottom-right corner and select from four font sizes to help make your mobile reading experience better.

If the option isn't available on the title you're reading, it may be a PDF whose format we can't enlarge the font this way. We're sorry for the trouble! You should be able to make them large by doing the "pinching" if you have a touch screen device. Place two fingers in the center of the screen and then slide them apart to enlarge the whole page. 

If you have a question or believe that there's an error and you should be able to enlarge the font, please contact our customer service team and include the name of the book or document so they can investigate the matter for you.
