Hi Norbert,
    I don't know how to make actor titles or port lables larger with 
respect to the icons. You can of course 'zoom' the entire workflow and 
annotation text can be sized.

    There is a way to scale an entire workflow for presentations and 
journals, and that is to use 'Print...' The workflow is drawn by Kepler 
using vector graphics, so it is drawn to the size of the printer. If you 
have Adobe Acrobat, you can 'Print' to a PDF file and set the native 
size of that PDF for something like a large poster format. Or just print 
a PDF to ordinary paper size; the workflow image is still scalable.
