Is it just me, my increasingly poor eyesight, my browser, even my PC, or has the font size of the characters on many Hub Pages screens been significantly decreased? I notice it particularly in edit mode on Hubs but also on the Statistics page and even here on the forum. Until a week ago, I didn't need to use my reading glasses when on the site but now I have to do so more often than not.
I haven't noticed any difference. However, in case you missed it, the size of the H2 subtitles has been increased.
But you're saying your lettering size has been reduced. Is this happening on all websites? I have a feeling you may have accidentally reduced the font size on your browser.
Here is an article I found that explains how to change the font size on various browsers:
I think pretty much all websites make their blasted font size too small. Apparently they all think only people under 40 use the internet.
I use multiple Ctrl+ all the time. Ctrl- brings it back down. Ctrl0(zero) returns default. Seems to work with all desktop browsers.
I thought they were doing it on purpose so that we older users would not lean back and nod off.
Couple other notes:
1. Your PC display settings also give you increased font size capability. I've jacked mine up one level. Side note: yep, combined display and browser settings do compound; but not a big deal to readjust browser setting back down one or two levels or whatever.
2. Based on personal experience, goto http://www.allaboutvision.com/condition … r-grid.htm
If you are not already familiar with the Amsler Grid and those printed lines aren't perfectly straight, etc.; you know what to do and that you need to do it immediately.
It's not just you, Gordon.
The font sizes got reduced by many websites during the last year and I also noticed the differences. But, I am able to catch it with my glasses and got accustomed to it. You can change your seating settings also to improve the visibility. Sometimes, leaning backwards also helps you very much when you are wearing the glasses.
Thanks to all of you for info. I've tried the CTRL and + and it certainly has made a difference. Whether I actually reduced it or not, I'm not sure. At least issue is sorted for now - thanks again.

I have written all my hubs with my font size set to 22 and wonder now that with a more normal size they will not have the neat appearance that I designed into them.Can I get a few opinions on the appearance of this hub, along with the font size you are using on your browser? I realize that...

I think I may have a problem with my display settings. I use firefox for my browser and have set my font size to 22, which is comfortable for my decrepit eyes. I have also designed all my hubs visually around this font size, never thinking that I would end up with white space when other...
