    I am an old one. Small font hurts my eyes. This is perfect for me. I got dry eyes. Why they call it that when actually they are too much wet, can only imagine, maybe to sell wet solution pharmaceuticals for dry,
    of which I don't use. I don't trust them especially with eyeness.

    One option is to hit command or control and "+" or "-" on your screen to make the font larger or smaller... just thought I'd throw that out there! I do it all the time on other sites. big_smile

      Hahaha I choked on my water as I was scrolling when I suddenly saw that Hubpages itself had posted...

      Does this mean that the effort to change it back has ended?

      While I recognize that we can zoom out, once we've done so, the actual thread is too small, and we must then zoom in.

      Makes for an unpleasant forum experience, IMO.

        And why did it change to the large font in the first place? I'm sure there was a reason...what was it? Maybe it was a good reason. If HP had given the reason, lots of hubber energy would have been expended elsewhere over the last 36 hours or so.

    If it's too big, you could simply sit further'd be about the same. Except it's a different font than before. smile

      I don't know if it's the font size or the font style, but it hurts my eyes, too.  It's not as bad once we are in a thread, but the main forum page is painful.  Ouch!

      Well I am sure there is a reason why they make font larger. I like large font since I don't have to strain my eyes and go through the trouble zooming in and out.

        That's what we're saying.  We don't care for the large font.  It hurts our eyes.  If you don't have to zoom in and out, we do. 

        From the first thread about it, it did not appear to have been a deliberate decision.  It does appear that they have deliberately chosen not to see it.

          They see it, alright. It seems they're choosing to do nothing about it, or, to fix it is taking more time, or whatever.

            HA!  Sally thanks for that.  I meant to type 'fix' it, not 'see' it.  smile

              After all this time, you are absolutely right. They are choosing to not fix it, even though they've seen it.

      Still no change...I'm tired of flipping back and forth between 100% and 110 or 90. It screws up everything I see via Chrome.
