WMK - I still can't read profiles

RRPRRP Posts: 13,850
edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I asked this recently in a general post and only received a spotty response. Basically I find the font on eggers profiles is so tiny, no make that minute that I can't even read them. I have my setting at 200% and while the threaded view is very small at least I can read it. What am I doing wrong?

    i suspect nothing. i just went to your profile and mine starting with differnt font sizes and the font in the profile is always the same size [small]. OR changing font size in the forum has no effect on profile font. untill they fix this do what i do.... go to costco and get stronger 'readers' i am up to 2.50's. [this getting old crap is for the birds as my mother used to say] i am using classic view but don't think it matters.

    bill,
    I have been wearing corrective glasses for 50 years and can see and read fine with them. Even a large magnifying glass doesn't make the font on profiles much better. I just wish someone else would chime in here who has the same problem. I mean it is minute to the point it's illegible!!! It was fine up until maybe 2 weeks ago so I know something has happened. I use the last 25 to ease eyestrain as it clearly is larger font. BTW I don't have any problem any other Internet sites so it has to be something here!

    i have not noticed a change in font size on my computer....BUT....i never had the edit function available, did not even know it existed. wmk changed something that had to do with another '''bill''' who never confirmed. now i have edit... also while setting up this new computer i had working karma for a week when no one else did. hard to tell if it is on your end on theirs... wish i could be of more help but i am not a computer expert [ i do have advanced training in frustration and irritability]
    good luck

    p.s. you might want to post this on the forum feedback that is where i got my help.

  • Here's a quick tip I use when all else, including eyes, fails. Press and hold the CTRL key and spin the wheel on your mouse, or press and hold the CTRL key and press the "+" or "-" key. It will make the text larger or smaller. Works in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

    my 2 cents,

    thank you - I know that trick, but that's a hassle then to return it back for normal viewing of everything else on the board - it just the profiles that are so tiny and I just don't understand why.

    just turn your wheel the other direction. Best to play with that where you know what "normal size" is supposed to look like to you.

    hit control and scroll the mouse wheel SLOWLY in both directions untill you get the font where you want ...i think the forum is acting up tonight....i lost the lit of members on line and ended up in wide view when i hit the back button i suspect they might be doing some maintenance.

    now you tell me :( oh well i guess it was good for so long and now right down the pooper......


    i can get everything to move except the other fields you know where it says name/handle it is still as small as the profiles... i am going to clear a history and see if that helps...

    I have the same behavior. Also, the text down here in the "Post a reply" section is as tiny as it can be. Have you asked this in the feedback forum?

    bente,
    I had the same diaster the first time and as I recall I rebooted and then went to a site where I knew what it should look like and adjust the setting doing "wheelies"! I hope you regain your composure and sanity and font soon!

    RRP et. al.,

    When we implemented the font size controls we found it necessary to limit their effect because, as with the mouse wheel, when everything is made bigger, things don't look right either (e.g. the menu text doesn't fit properly). So, that's why they only affect part of the site.

    We are working, as we "speak", on a new "template" which will address all of these issues among others. It is, however, a significant piece work so it won't be done tonight unfortunately.
