In your browser -- say IE6 go to the top of the window and you will see the line : File Edit View Favourites Tools Help. Click View then Text Size and then click Medium.. try that see if it improves. But be forewarned.. increasing the text size means you will have to scroll across the screen more... :!: Does that help :?:

I am doing just that,
and this is the reason for asking to change for a bigger size :lol: :lol:

as the Message body on the side for exemple :roll:

On my screen, the text message is bigger than the writing on the side under the avatars, etc. What size monitor are you using?

I ment the size of" message body" on the post reply page, on top of emoticons, Iam using a 19 inche 1600x1 set at 1024x768 for resulution
but I would apreciate not having to use my reading glasses :lol:

I have a 17" TFT LCD monitor set at 1024x768 and the size seems to be adequate. Sometimes on some pages or some of the other forums that I have been to, I need to increase the font size.

However, if you want the stuff on your screen to be bigger, you may have to lower the resolution to the next size up.. say 800x600 or so.... It is a personal thing I would presume.. and not something that can be set in the forum software..

Well, as much as I'd like to say I can help you, rather than say "spend some money on monitors and glasses" :roll: I have no real good answers for you. Changing font sizes on complex forum layouts, while possible, often throws formatting into the realm of the "unknown".

Perhaps in the next upgrade of the forum software, I can put a "LARGE FONT" theme into the mix for those with visual complications. Noted and on the list!

I know my glasses keep getting thicker and my monitors keep getting bigger, I'm just glad the prices keep dropping :lol:

Excellent feed back, keep'em coming folks.

I just tried it with Windows XP and the results were FANTASTIC...
Sometimes even trifocals aren't enough.
Maybe Rudi needs to add this to the Tips section. :idea: :idea: :idea: :D :D

whether the <ctl> and scroll wheel works depends on how you have the keyboard programed.
