Adjusting Seat Size

The Seating Chart is displayed with a seat size that allows all the seats to fit in the window. If you want to adjust the view on a temporary basis without changing the spacing relationship, use the Zoom function. However, if you want to change permanently the seat size in relation to the white space between seats; choose Options > Set Seat Size Seating Chart menu to make the seats larger or smaller. Then, adjust the scroll to the pixel size you desire. A larger size may cause the seats to overlap and a small size may make the text on the seat more difficult to read.
