This is by way of a repost as I missed some instructions.

What follows is "serious Rocket science" [Not!]:

On Linux:

Start up RunRev  [I did this with RunRev Studio 4.0]

Open the 'revDictionary' from the menuBar

Make sure that in your preferences you have 'Revolution UI elements 
appear in lists of stacks'

Open a New Main stack.

Open the stack inspector and select the 'revDictionary'
to edit . . .

NOW: Go to 'Text Formatting'; you will find that the text
is set to 12 points if you start fiddling around with it.

Set the font for the revDictionary stack to 14 (bigger than that and
things get horrible).

Open the Message Box and type:

save stack "revDictionary"

hit the ENTER button on your keyboard. [The Dictionary will go 

EXIT RunRev.


Your revDictionary will now have larger text.


sincerely, Richmond.
