the font size and/or type? If so, is there any way to change it back? Thanks

I have not noticed any change regarding font size and/or type. I am running Windows 7 on a PC and using Firefox browser.

on my computer I can press the control button that is in the lower left corner of my keyboard and hold that button down and then push the scroll wheel away from me to enlarge the print.

Same as always for me, using an iPad/iMac.

Something is different in the last day or two.  I'm running Win 10.  It's either the latest Firefox update or something on PBS.

Not very noticeable but when I scroll down thru the community forums, the spacing on the Discussions by Genre area is much tighter than it used to be.

I'm noticing layout changes to the home page on all platforms (Safari, FF, IE).

I agree with Sarah...although I'm on Chrome and have Windows 8. It's the spacing that is tighter. I'm not seeing it on any other website that I visit regularly either.

The font is different on my Mac. I use Chrome. I think it's much more squished together and harder to read.

Things are also looking very different on my iPhone- format, etc. I do not like it.

I'm on Win 10, the last update changed some bits including the arrangement of the option above the post box. Looks as if some might now be missing but I can't be sure, others are just in different places than before.

My wife has noticed a definite change because she has her screen resolution at 150% instead of at the usual 100%.  If she reduces the screen resolution one notch down then the page looks about the same as always.

I've noticed a huge difference at work, no difference at all on my home PC. (I had also previously increased the resolution on both comps). I'm guessing that seeing a difference might be attributed to updates and newer systems. 

I've had to now reduce the resolution at work just to see the whole screen, which is really hard for me. At home, I'm good to go.

It all changed for me today using an iPad with Safari, with no changes or updates on my end...took me a bit to figure out how to navigate!

I'm on a desktop with Win 7 using Firefox. My PBS layout is different, too (and not a good different). frown 

On every page except the home page, the entire top is missing (with the grey tab/links to home, search, my account, community, etc). There is a menu link, well I assume it is supposed to be a menu (three stacked dashes) but when I click it, nothing happens. In order to go to my account, or wish list, or forums, or anything except the home page, I have to go "home" & click it or find the links I bookmarked!

I also have a strange scroll bar on my main account page that causes my tabs to scroll off the screen.

All the pages are more narrow, like the margins were decreased even though the page size stayed the same.

When I click any book link, the font & pictures are HUGE and more than half the information is missing. The only way to view it in it's entirety is to ctrl- until it's so small I cannot read it. cheeky

Not sure what their intentions were in changing the interface but it's definitely NOT as user friendly as it was and it is difficult to navigate.

On my iPad (using Safari) when I scroll through a thread the screen doesn't stay in place. Usually it rolls up and down as I slide my finger but now it's loose, as it would do if I resized the screen or were swiping to the side, as you do to go to the previous page (instead of using the back arrow), only actually swiping doesn't work if I try to go to the previous page.

This is exactly what I was experiencing at work. I also had to control - to get everything onto the page. It's very difficult to read because it's all so small.

Mine went back to "normal" on my iPad yesterday without me doing anything. Glad to see it back, did not like the changes!

My iPad is still showing the annoying changes.
