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 people use a different font size.
What size do most people use? Do I need now to edit my hubs to make them more attractive visually to people with normal eyesight?
Well, I just found out why my hubmetrics screen took so long to figure out - it looks really odd unless I set the font size to 16.
Is that what most of you use? Actually, I'm not sure I want to know; if it is I have a bunch of work editing most of my hubs!
I just left it at the default setting..meaning the font size is determined by the size used for each web page.
If you use Firefox, you can (with Windows) hold down the 'Ctrl' button and use your mousewheel to make the text larger or smaller. In version 3.6, the whole page, including graphics can be zoomed in or out.
I don't think I've made myself very clear. I designed the hubs to be visually attractive as much as I could, including no white space between capsules. But it was done with the font set at 22; if I change my browser to 16 and look at the hub the photos and ads on the sides of the text capsule are now considerably longer than the text, resulting in a white space gap under the text.
I can always write the hub with whatever font size I want, then change it back to a more comfortable setting for me to use. Unfortunately, I changed the font size long enough ago that I no longer remember what the default (and probably the most common size used) was. I'm trying to find that common size used by most people to "optimize" the appearance of the hub for that size.
I also started a forum post in the makeover section, giving an example of what I was talking about and asking for opinions on the appearance.

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...

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...

Can I change the font size of my hubs?When I compared my hubs with other, I found that my font size is smaller. Can I change it?

I've taken a screen shot from one of my own articles and from Wikipedia. Both tabs in the browser were at the same zoom level, so I was considering relative size rather than absolute size.Do you think the HubPages font weight is a bit light? I.e. Are letters too thin? Could the font size be...

So I'm going through my Hubs and making sure they are mobile/desktop friendly. I noticed that a lot of my hub capsules have ridiculous amounts of spaces to them after the paragraph ends. It makes it so there is a bunch of white space between the sections of my Hubs. Has anyone else noticed this?...
