View Full Version : Problem with font size
For whatever reason, I cannot get the font size to change here at Aeclectic Tarot when I click the 'largest-to-smallest' text-size-button on my toolbar...
Can anyone help me in this??? The print is so tiny, I have had to give up coming here as it strains my eyes too much...
that's strange......on my windows machine I use Firefox and I can get the text size to change
Geez... after spending hours futzing with the resolution, display, and blah, blah, blah, I found the answer to this dilemma...
1. Go to the Internet Toolbar and click on 'Tools';
2. Go to 'Internet Options' and click;
3. Go to 'Accessibility' and click-- (WHY in the sam hell fixing the font sizing would be in such a strangely-named place is beyond me, *sigh*)
In any case, 'Accessibility' is a one-box event... There are two choices only: 'Formatting' and 'Style-Sheet'...
Under the 'Formatting' section, you will see 3 options:
1. Ignore colours specified on Web pages;
2. Ignore font styles specified on Web pages;
3. Ignore font sizes specified on Web pages.
All of these are 'check' boxes...
I checked boxes 2 and 3, and, voila!, I can now use the 'Text Size' option on my Toolbar and actually have it work... No more teeny/tiny, teentsy/weentsy text that was making me go blind...
I'm so glad I found this, but... what a total pain in the ass!!!
Many thanks for posting this, Fairemaiden... Just got a new HD monitor and the font thing was driving me batty. Your solution worked like a charm! :thumbsup:
Bless your heart. I have a new computer and a newly reformated old computer and and I thought I'd been struck stupid because the View/TextSize was no longer working like it used to.
edited to add the avatars are wonderfully bigger too :)
fairemaiden, you are a gem followed your directions and voila I now can read the text, many thanks saved me quite a headache
i have wn xp with IE7 and don't see any such options.
i found it. on the tools option it has one option at the bottom that says "accessibility" .i clicked o that and found this. now if it works. the type looks funny to me now. I just want my fonts to appear darker.
In Firefox it is
Then, in the Content tab:
Look part way down to the Fonts and Colours section. All those tick boxes are either out front or in the Advanced button sections.
My gosh Fairemaiden, it works. I was going nuts trying to read it thought I would have to give it up. Thank you Memries
In your user CP you can also get rid of the purple and change to grey and white. This helps immeasurably in the readability here.
Thank you A.J. I had found that and it does help.
Right now my font size is ok on the page but when I write in post a reply it is miniscule. Is there a way to fix that as well ?
Thank you for posting this info FaireMaiden. I've never been a big fan of Explorer; it's certainly not as intuitive as Firefox, but lately I've taken a shine to it. Thought I never would figure out this font issue.
How wonderful that you brought this question to the Forum. It would never have occurred to me.
I'm using a Mac OSX, Browser Safari. I clicked on View - Zoom in.
Suddenly I can read all the posts so much better.
Thank you! :heart:
