How do I set a default font type and size for my forum posts? My font is always so tiny {squinting}

Thanks!

You can't!   I wish you could too but the site does not have that option.

If you hit "CTRL +" that will zoom in.  "CTRL -" will zoom back out -- not exactly what you're asking, but it's a quick way to foil the tiny type demons.

Cozi - so you just hightlight your post after you type it and increase the font or change the color?

Patty - I learned that trick a few months ago, comes in veeeeerrrry handy for these "older" eyes.

Everyone else's posts all seemed larger, so I thought I was just missing a setting LOL.

No default setting Terrie.   So your options are to increase the size of everything on your screen or individually adjust every post.

BTW, your font seems the same size as everyone else.

Sure, now it is . . . but earlier today it seemed much smaller. LOL

Thanks for the help!

This is what I do for every reply I make.

I click B for bold, then click Comic Sans for font, then the size and then the color.

After I do all that then I type my reply.

I guess I could type my reply and then highlight it all and do the above, but I just do it first.
