I'm having a problem with the type size in this posting box. The font is so small I can barely make it out. Changing to a larger font only increases the size when it's posted, but not in the typing stage.
It is the same on my work and home computers, so I don't think it's on my end.
Is there something I can do?

If you have a PC you can hit <CTRL>and + or - to change the size of the screen.

Using the ctrl +- will make everything you look at be larger or smaller...look at the bottom of the post/reply box here..under it is a line...just above the row of smiley faces that says max characters...remaining characters...on the right side there it says...text size...with a number...and a - + sign next to it...if it doesn't say 10 pt..hit the + sign to raise it up...try it see what happens... should make things work better..and it should change it as well on you're other computers...

Ok, that changes the size of the whole screen. But the only thing that is small is the type in the Reply Box, and it is still disproportionately tiny even with a bigger screen.

you obviously used the ctrl + -...instead of going down to the bottom like I mentioned and changing the text size there...give it a try..

Looks like it only changes on my computer but like Vulcan said in this box you are typing in on the lower right hand side right past the end of the smilies, there is a thing called Text Size the dafault is 11pt you can make it any size you want. Not sure how to change the default. Mosy people give me crap for having large fonts because I am blind as a bat!

Much better! Found the "text size" thingy. I must have hit it accidentally somehow.
Thanks!

Glad to hear ya got things looking better...When I said it should take care of the way things look on the other computers you use...I was thinking it may be like an e-mail account...look at something on one computer..it shows up as already read on other computers...same account..good luck..
