Use Quicksilver for large lyrics display Apps
I've always had a problem trying to read the small fonts on lyrics websites for songs I know on guitar.

Now I just copy and paste all the lyrics from the page, use Quicksilver's Large Text function, and I have all my lyrics nice and large and taking up the whole screen!

Or just use the Control key plus the scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom instantly?

Or just expand your browser window to full screen and press command-+ a few times.

Or pinch-zoom in on a multi-touch track pad.

instead of Copy&Paste, it's a bit smarter to define a "Command Window with Selection" Trigger (in QS > Preferences > Triggers > Quicksilver > Command Window with Selection). I assigned Cmd + Shift + Space.

This way, you can just select whatever Text you want, hit Cmd + Shift + Space and select QSLargeTypeAction.

By rearranging the default actions for "Text" you can even save that last step (selecting QSLargeTypeAction) ;-)

Quicksilver is great!

Cheers,
Michael

It'd have been helpful for this article to tell us how to invoke the large-text feature in QuickSilver, instead of just mentioning it.

This works, but how do you scroll QS's Large Text window?

Maybe I'm missing something, but if you have a mouse with a scroll wheel (I haven't tried this with a MightyMouse) can't you zoom in on any screen as much as you want holding Control key and rolling the scroll wheel forward -- and back to zoom out.

I see someone already suggested this. I must read more slowly.
