Did the standard font size become smaller? I can hardly read the posts anymore. :-(

In the top right hand corner (just above the logout link) you will find a capital A which controls font size - perhaps you just clicked on that by mistake?

'logout' is on upper left on my screen, and no A on either side. I'd love a larger font - any solution?

I suspect your profile is set to Subsilver or Greenmiles2 - you need to join the Prosilver gang! All shall become clear. :)

You need to go to User Control Panel and click on Board Preferences. Select Edit Global Settings. You can select one of 3 options for My Board Settings. Choose Prosilver and submit. You should now have the same screen as me with a capital A in the top right corner which allows you to change text size if you click on it.

Hope it works for you, Donata.

we all know How much important font size for reading specially foreign language.
I believe that font size is an important factor for the usefulness of a written resource for language learners, especially in the beginning when most words look unfamiliar to the eye and have to be perceived letter by letter.

Also the simple comfort of holding a nice object in one's hands may be very important for the learner who is challenged with reading in a foreign language. I think that we shouldn't take such things for granted like the shape and font-size of written language-learning resources.

When I read a book in German, I am much more sensitive to the size of the font than when I read in English. This is because I am a much more skillful English reader than a German reader. And if I was to read in a completely new language, I would be even more concerned with the font than in the case of German, with which I am quite familiar.

I ask all of you, do you care about the font size of written texts when you read in a foreign language more than when you read in your native language?

In you want to change quickly the font size, just press Ctrl while using the scroll wheel button of your mouse. It's very easy !

Personnaly, I don't care about the size, whatever french or english, but it may be because I'm used to read both languages now...
