How do I

Enlarge this on my I-Pad

So that I can read the script ?

I hope that somebody will be along with a simpler way, but if I follow your link and tap on the black shape of the book at the side, it comes up on screen. A couple or three taps fairly rapidly enlarges it enough for me to read, albeit with highlights on a lot of words.

It doesn’t necessarily work every time, unfortunately, and the taps need to be just right. I then copy and put it in notes.

I found this when I couldn’t enlarge a book I wanted to check something out in which was out of print.

Good luck!

I don't have an iPad, but in the page that opens on my laptop, there are two magnifying glasses on the top left of the page, one with + and one with -, clicking the + one enlarges the text.

You clever man, with more thought and better sight than me. I bet the end of your finger isn’t sore with tapping pages either! 😄

Thank for the replies. I got the software to work as it should. I am a bit mystified as to why it did not work the first time I tried which caused e to make this post. Possibly something to do with an intermittent connection I think.
