Hi all

Maybe its just me and my "mature age" , but there are some forum posts where certain sentences or comments are done in the smallest font available! :huh: No matter how hard I stare or try and focus, there is no way I can make out the wording!! I am not sure of the reason for the small font, but would really appreciate it if the forum members would spare a thought for the members who have less than perfect vision?

Aside from that, I am addicted to the forum and although I don't post too often I do browse the forums everyday and enjoy this site tremendously!!

Thanks!!

Janet

Hi Janet....it is an awesome site :thumbs_up:
If you can't read the tiny parts, just hit the quote button at the bottom of the page for that post, and it will come in normal font, then simply hit the back button to get back to where you were

If you don't want the hassle of pressing the quote button, waiting for the page to load then canceling, you can also make all the fonts in your browser bigger buy holding down the Ctrl key (bottom left of your keyboard) and scroll with your mouse wheel. Scrolling one way will make it smaller, the other bigger. Once you're done, just scroll the reverse way to make it normal size again.

Thanks all. Those are great tips.

If you're working in Windows, in the menu bar select VIEW, then select ZOOM. You can select one of those.

But I just hit CTRL + (plus) keys to increase size of screen
CTRL - (minus) to make it smaller without going into the menu bar.

CTRL 0 (zero, not the 'o') will bring it back to normal (which is too small for me.) :-)

Hi Janet,

Maybe I can help you with that. You can easily enlarge the post by hitting the + button while holding the CTRL button down. If you hit the + button a few times it get's bigger and bigger. :lol:

Thanks everybody, for the usefull tips.

I knew about the quote method, by accident, using the quote.

Tired eyes can surely use the zoom in method.

Just tried it on the Blog and it makes a world of difference!!!
