    1. KuTools auto zoom doesn't work. Perhaps it doesn't work on the latest Office on Windows 10?
    2. I'm already zooming with system scaling, want to zoom the reading pane only, it's still very small.

      Hi Chris,
      Kutools will not change the zoom level in the mail interface of Outlook including the Reading Pane. While Kutools can change the zoom levels automatically when reading or composing emails in the Message window.
