Font size

Is there a way to change the font size without having the page get too large for the screen?

Yes it is. Thank you boatman 61. Although I don't care for the font itself as it seems a bit girly if you know what I mean. But unless I'm just reading yours and mine then I don't know what to do. Thank you.

Re: Font size

It's not you. It's the font. I wear progressives. Just screwed I guess.

I abhor a thread drift () but I hope CFers don't wax their chests! I guess the gals have to but we don't.

The gods must be crazy.

Re: Font size

You better all read the rules about font size etc before you get too excited and start getting artistic. Yep, the fun police have appeared.

Re: Font size

In Firefox you have the option to zoom the page, or just the text on the page. It might make the formatting look odd.

There is no option for this in the forum software itself.

Yes but that is not a solution for me as the page gets wider and I find it a real PIA to have to scroll the screen back and forth with each line I read.

I was hoping for a larger font within the page. Not a bigger page.

Your other option is to knock off all that aging...
