    I know how to change the font's color but I am not sure how to change the font's size? Or does that even exist?

    Try control + and see if that helps.

    Sorry - not sure what you want. Control+ will make the entire screen larger for reading, but not change the font.

    where you change the font there should be a box with a number in it, change the number till you get the size you want..it is a drop down box so very easy

    That isn't exactly what I met. I understand what you guys mean but what I am saying is, is there a way to make the font itself bigger (not the whole screen).

    If you are referring to changing the font size in a post/reply, I'm pretty sure you can't.

    You could try increasing the zoom on your browser. [​IMG]

    The forum only supports the text color change (as well as bold italics and underlining)

    Can you imagine the mess if peeps could change their font sizes? Worse than smiley abuse.

    I use the zoom function and set it to 180%. That makes it nearly double the size, but still fits in the monitor screen.
