Fonts too small?

Is it just me or are the site’s fonts a bit too small? Seems like the text in articles and threads gets smaller every day, but maybe it’s my own eye fatique!

It’s pretty easy to bump up the main text size but that usually creates a bunch of “fit” problems so sizes have to then be tweaked in quite a few places. Worth it though, if folks are at all discouraged from reading the site due to overly tiny text.

The font's fine for me, and if it's too small, then I just hold control and spin the mouse wheel till it's a nice size. It's a handy trick that works on all websites.

What--you mean I might just be getting old? Here come the bifocals!
Thanks for the mouse-wheel tip though, Jay. Didn't know about that one, and it's much easier than finding zoom in the menu or clicking some buttons.

Step aside, sliced bread! What a great trick for those of us who are surely not getting older, but for some odd reason cannot read smaller fonts as well as we used to. Now...what buttons do I push to help me remember better? Biggrin

LOL - I had bifocals by high school and college, so I can sympathize. Fortunately I no longer need them but do have a pair of glasses surgically attached to my nose [well, it feels that way sometimes ]. Wink
