I downloaded many pdf's {most are medical reports. The font is very small and a chore to read. I've been printing them so I can read them easily.
Is there a way to enlarge the font without a 3rd party app?
I read that if you import the PDF, use "OPEN WITH" and then select DOCS, I would be able to edit the FONT. The problem is that procedure doesn't allow OPEN WITH DOCS.
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Usually I open with Google drive and I can pinch out the PDF to view it larger.. I so I will turn the phone in landscape with the larger zoom to read. Hope that helps. Maybe as I'm not sure about changing fonts on the PDF

Thanks. I tried Adobe (free version) and it didn't work.
If I could find a way to Copy and Paste the content of the PDF into a new DOC, it would solve my problem.
I don't understand why you can't copy and paste multiple pages of Pdf's.

It's cumbersome because the PDF format was created for the very purpose of fixing a document as-is so it can't be changed, edited, or otherwise manipulated from its final form.

Of course, there are ways around it, and paid PDF readers and editors can certainly edit or convert PDFs back to regular editable documents - unless it's set to read-only with a password or printed as an image.

Adobe reader for Android can reformat a PDF within the viewer to something easier to read on a small screen, but it can't do it with just any PDF.

I know that's not much help, but just kind of the way it is.

Thanks for the facts about Pdf's. I didn't know that. It looks as though I'm going to have to live with the problem, since I abhor paying for a feature that I feel should be included in the Operating system.
I've tried various workarounds such as copying the file through SHARE and then editing it to copy the text.
I just don't understand why just changing the font alters the PDF'S original purpose.
I know I'm hard headed and I appreciate the patience of the users of this forum.
