Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Restoring from a vault, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Well, the whole reason why we do all this backup stuff and create Vaults and all these things to make sure…that our stuff is protected, is so that if something happens we can restore, we can get all of our stuff back.…So for example, if I had the tragic thing happen where my Aperture Library crashed on a hard drive;…the whole hard drive went down, and then I had to put a new hard drive on my computer, and I reinstall Aperture.…Then I am going to want to restore my Aperture Library from the Vaults,…because that's why I was doing it in the first place.…
So let me show you how that works, it's really kind of interesting.…So the first thing we are going to do, we are going to have to emulate this a little bit,…so I am going to close this Aperture Library right now.…I am going to quit Aperture.…Now I am going to relaunch Aperture, but this time I am going to create a new library.…So what we are saying is that, this is like we have a new hard drive and we have installed Aperture,…and we are going to setup an empty library.…

Q: Are there a way to increase the font size in Aperture?
A: Not in Aperture itself, but you can use the zoom feature built into your operating system. (Aperture is a Mac-only program, by the way.) Go to the Apple menu and open System Preferences. Choose Universal Access. Turn on Zoom under the Seeing tab. Then, in any application, you can press Shift+Cmd+Plus to zoom in and Shift+Cmd+Minus to zoom out.
We advise you do not lower the screen resolution unless it's absolutely necessary, as that approach tends to make images softer than they really are. But if your sight is very poor, the tradeoff might be worth it.
