Hi All,
I think it's just me, but it seems the font for the site has gotten a lot smaller...and no my eyes are not going bad and I don't think it's an age issue ;). Will someone please tell me how I can adjust the font size?

Thanks

On a Mac its Safari Preferences, not sure about a PC, but could be somewhere in Tools, Options?

In Firefox you can just hit ctrl and + ! (OMG I just did.....) Or view and then look at all the lovely zoom options !

ETA in iE (ugh, just opened it to see) it is view > text size (amazing or what ????)

I have Firefox- latest version. I went on Tools-->Options--->Content
then under Content there is an option to chose dont and size. Is that what you did, Gregory, or is there a way to change font size specifically for AT?

thanks!

Sadly that is what I meant. :(

Do you do the ctrl and + thing ? Try it with ONLY one page of AT open; then close the page and when you open it again it SHOULD be OK - if you go back to a page with it small it sometime isn't....

ETA then again I have NOT upgraded to 3.5 cos there is a thread here about that that scared me ;)

It worked!!! How did you know to do that-- I'm in IT and I didn't even know this(and I dont think this is something I should be admitting!). Thanks, you are AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Why not admit it. We all make discoveries in our fields..... I am retired and plan to find out how to be VERY OLD ! Something about living longer, they tell me ;)

How do you think I knew ???? From the day I blew up a picture (OK now I admit I forgot about my firefox "zoom up the pic" add-on....!) and the text went bigger with it and next time I came on line I was getting text with about 4 words to a line here..... You work VERY hard to get out of THAT, I'm telling you !

Basically - trial and error; I always try; I find computers are very forgiving. And as they are also big on remembering, it seemed logical that the poor thing was trying to remember what I did last and do it again, to make me happy..... Like it retains your Word settings in terms of visible toolbars etc !

Glad to have helped.
