Forum Fonts

  morddwyd 08 Dec 12

Is there any way of increasing fonts by the same percent/ration throughout the PCA site?

I know all about browser settings and screen magnifiers etc, but I find that if I increase the font, say, on this forum to a readable size the font in the text box, where I am typing now, stays the same and I need a hand held magnifier.

So does the font in the list of forums under"News/Reviews/ ow To........"etc near the top of the page In addition the "Magazine/Offers/ Shopping " line just above this is half cut off, so that only the top half of the font is visible.

Any suggestions?

At the moment I am having to use word to cut and paste, but it's a bit of a pain for just a one liner to Brumas!

Not sure exactly what your after here?

I just use Ctl plus scroll wheel FWD to increase screen size and the cursor moves where I'm typing so can almost just see the one word I typing if I want it that large.

Don't have a scroll wheel, so can't try that.

I simply want the font in the text box to be the same size as the rest of the page.

For instance, as I read your post the text is 5mm or so high. However, as I type this it is around 1 to 1 1/2

I think that morddwyd has some features turned off in his browser for accessibility reasons and does not get the reply box formatting. I wonder if this is affecting the increase font in the reply box which should increase with the rest of the page.

morddwyd Firefox | Tools | Options |Contents tab, Fonts & Colours and click on advanced, the text in the compose box that we type in is the one under 'Monospace'.

You have to UNtick 'Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above'

Change the text for Monospace to alter the text you type in.

Alter the other ones for the rest of the pages text.

"Pressing Ctrl + or - has the same effect. The text box font changes size when I use the above,Firefox 17. Are you using a different browser?"

That does work on the text box, unfortunately it also works on everything else, making the normal font appear about one word per screen, a bit cumbersome!

Same effect in Chrome, FF, Opera, Safari and IE, on three different computers.

lotvic The "Monospace solution cracked it, thank you.

Still stuck with the "miniature" forum list and half of some lines missing, but I can live with that!
