I don't like smal fonts. Therefore I would like to have a default zoom level of 125% for all spread sheets in Excel 2011 on OS X Lion. Is there a way to tell Excel to open all spread sheets with a zoom level of 125%?

This explains how to do it. In short, you have to creare a new template.

I did this, it works for new workbooks

Sub auto_open()
' SetDefaultZoomto125 Macro
' sets default zoom to 125% on start up of XL

ActiveWindow.Zoom = 125
End Sub

hope it helps you.
