forum print has gone really small
« on: May 20, 2016, 05:53:05 AM »
it started when I re-started my laptop, FWIW, so I don't think its anything to do with the forum, I think it must be just me, but I don't know how to make it back to normal size again (other than zooming in on the screen, but this is really inconvenient, partly because I have to do it every time I go to a new page, and partly because you then can't see who the poster is).

I've looked all over "settings" and I can't see anywhere where you can change the default font size. Can anyone help?

I go into settings then appearance and change the size font there.

Or the cheat  press Ctrl and roll the scroll up on the mouse

Good Luck

Ctrl-0 should also bring it back to normal (on a Windows machine - haven't got a clue about a Mac).

I can't find Settings (well, I can find "Account Settings" but that seems to be more about me - eg my profile name, password, security question etc. Can I be a real pain and ask you to talk me through where I find Settings then Appearance?

(I'm on a Macbook Air, so unfortunately the other suggestions like the mouse scroll wheel and Cntl 0 don't work.)

ok, read this, see if it helps

It worked - thank you so much! Its funny because none of the other sites I visit have gone small-print, but the main thing is that I can now fix it and read eHell again!

(the answer was to press Command and + to make it bigger)
