How to get a larger printer font

What you see is what you get. In the estimate, there are so many columns that the printer rasterization algorythms must force a tiny font. Here's the trick: hover your mouse in-between the column headers and it will turn into a + sign with arrows on the left and right. Then you can hold down the left mouse button and drag the column wider or more narrow and even make it disappear if it's narrow enough. You want 4 columns or less for a large printer font.
The printer also tries to keep the relative size of the columns, so if you want more detail in one column, make it wider. If you want less, make it more narrow.
