How do I enlarge my data record page to make it easier to read?

As a consequence of a newly dignosed eye condition I am finding reading my data record page difficult to read. I have tried <Control> + <+> but this has no effect. How can I magnify my data record page (and other aspects of Cardbox) to make reading the screen easier? Thank you.

Changing the order data is entered into fields.

I am using Cardbox to store genealogical data. I recently redesigned my records for each person splitting the field for their forenames into two, one for each name. I have subsequently decided that I need to add a third fore-name field. How do I change the 'tab order' so that the new third fore-name field is selected in its correct sequence?

Using "Drive, Folder name and File name" to open data files.

I am a new user of Cardbox. I have adopted it to store the data I am accruing in a one-name study. Is it possible to enter disc drive, path and file names in a Cardbox data (text) field, or do I need to declare the field under a different format?
