    Message compose window

    May I suggest that the font/font size in the message compose window on this forum is too small, and that enlarging the font would make it much easier for folks like me who type too fast and work on a big screen to check their spelling?

    I would suggest a font size in the message field that is just as large as the font size in the subject field?

    Just my pennyworth - it would certainly make contributing here much easier.

     

    thanks!

    Hi Adrian,

    This should help:

    Click on your user name to the top right, this will take you to http://community.avid.com/members/<yourusername>/default.aspx.

    There, to the left, click on Edit My Profile.

    Then, choose the tab "Site Options".

    Then, choose Font Size, Largest.

     

    Did that years ago, never looked back.

    Hi Job - just tried this, but I can see that the compose message window text is still the same small size :(

    The forums, like many other sites, uses tiny_mce for the message compose window. The font size is set in a CSS file on the forum hosting site. This is fixed at 10px. It's not something that you can automatically change.

    There is a way of changing it manually, but you have to do it every time you compose a message and it's not something that a typical user would do (it involves debugging the CSS at run time).
