Formerly, when assigning a font size on the tools like word processor, users will specify the size by the number of point like 12 point or 14 point. In that case, users can not intuitively imagine the font size on the screen and users had to try to find a desired size by changing the size over and over. With this invention, users can visually and instantly change the size of the font by this new font size control scheme.
