Hello, Im a bit new to arcgis and hoping for some help!

I'm trying to produce a map using A0 size paper. However I'm having trouble getting all the text to look the right size in the headings and labels, etc.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend the best size font to use?

Also i want to be able to zoom the layout window to display the actual size of the map. However I cant seem to find the best way to do this.

Any help or ideas greatly appreciated!! Thanks

Have you made sure that the paper size in page and print setup is actually set to A0?

The 1:1 button on the layout view toolbar will show you the actual size of the map.

Yes what i mean is getting all the labels to look right when printed at A0.

What are the best font sizes to use so they are legible on the map?

I dont want the labels to be too big or too small and dont want to waste paper by printing the map off to see what they look like when printed.

Thanks for any help!
