Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Working in All Projects view (and setting the Key photo), part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
A new feature in Aperture 2.0 is called All Projects, and I want to give you a peek at it, right now.…I am actually going to show you where it is first, and then I'll tell you a little bit more about it.…We are going to open up a Library here, and you will see, All Projects sitting right at the top of the Library list.…Now this may be confusing at first, because up here you have All Projects also.…But that's a different All Projects, that means all of these Projects listed here in the Projects pane,…whereas this All Projects is a -- kind of an interesting way to peek inside…of the existing projects that you have, and that its usefulness.…
Quite frankly, it's entertaining, and is also handy, because instead of having to click on each one of these Projects…to see what we inside, I can just go over to All Projects and skim.…I am just moving my mouse, and as I move my mouse I get…to see all the different images that are in a particular project.…So if you will go over here wind-surfing.…It could be kind of fun, it's sort of like a little movie, isn't it?…

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.
