Message Font Size

Just today when I went to the Opencpn Forum the font size is increased and it is the same on the main Forum page here. Is this an unannounced "improvement" or have I inadvertently changed something at my end? Thanks. Tony

Me too. Happened about an hour or two ago.

I was actively surfing the forum when it occurred. I thought I had dumb thumbed something.

I have a small boat and this font just doesn't fit in the cabin. Reading on deck now

Little trick (on the web only):
