Body type -- too small

Postby Broadsheet » Sat May 08, 2010 3:24 pm

Maybe I'm just getting old, but the body type on the site (with the exception of the forum) is so small it's now nearly unreadable to me. Makes my eyes water. And some type is even smaller than that! Maybe smaller than what we used to call agate.

Can you add a feature to allow scaling the type up?

On a Mac, push Apple and the "+" key at the same time to scale up text size. On a Windows machine, maybe try CTRL and the "+" key...?

This works on Firefox on my Mac - I'm not sure if it's universal across browsers/platforms.

Use the same method but with the "-" key to shrink pages back down :)

That works with Firefox on all platforms, not just Mac.

You can also go View/Zoom/Zoom In if you can't remember the keyboard shortcut.

Or go Tools/Options/Content/Fonts & Colors/Advanced and uncheck the box where it says to let pages choose their own fonts. Then select a font and size you can read easily for your new default. This may cause some pages to render funny, but at least you won't have to squint at ant-writing.

Thank you all so much! I use a Mac and the control-plus worked beautifully. I'm sorry I waited so long to ask!
