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...

Your browser font size will affect the appearance of a hub. What size do you use?

Yay, I can see my comments without getting out my magnifying glass!I thought at first it was me but have seen a few other Hubbers mentioning how hard it was to see our comments as we typed them. Thank you Hub Team for increasing the size of the comment font it makes it so much easier for those of...
