Hi all, does anyone know of a way to upscale (make larger) an entire libreoffice calc spreadsheet, without having to manually change everything?

I have a document that I can read just fine and I feel that the size is appropriate. However some others (particularly the older generation or the visually impaired) may have trouble reading it.

I know they can zoom in on a certain part, but it would be far more convenient to make the whole thing larger/take up more of the screen, so they aren't having to continually zoom in to read and then zoom back out.

Hey, you just used wrong title, no?

The zoom is just what fits your usecase best. Because to make everything larger, you would need to make cells wider and taller to fit content; this will effectively make the sheet look like it has been zoomed in... and in the same time break page layout.

Why would they need to zoom out BTW?

"I know they can zoom in ..., but it would be far more convenient to make the whole thing larger/take up more of the screen, ..."
If the emphasized part is not just worded in a mistakable way: It's a feature of the Operating System's (OS) windows manager to allow for maximised windows and/or for full screen mode. Under Windows(TM) there is a 'Maximize' icon right hand in the title bar (second one of three). Full screen mode is toggled either via the 'View' item of the main menu or, by default, with the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+J , OS or an add-in may also supply a lens feature. Under Windows: 'WindowsKey' + '+' will magnify, 'WindowsKey' + '-' reduce zoom-in factor and 'WindowsKey' + 'Esc' will quit lens mode.
