Text size

I use Mozilla. As a septuagenarian my eyes are not the best. Is there any way to set the default print size larger than what now is on screen.
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Text size

View -> text size and select what you want to do.

Re: Text size

As a quick work around - assuming it works like Firefox - press Ctrl and + which increases the text size on all sites until you close the browser (Ctrl and - reduces it)

Re: Text size

I don't know Mozilla, but in Firefox you can set a minimum font size.
Tools -> Options -> Content
Then in the Font + Colours section select advanced and then set the Minimum Font size that you find acceptable.

Re: Text size

Although these methods work the majority of the time, I think if the font is set as a px value the text sizing doesn't work (unless firefox has made a change to allow for it, but it's not likely because of the nature of it).
Only em and % (I think that's the only ones) value font sizes will be altered.
(Anyone to clear this up? Not tried it in a while Tongue)

Re: Text size

My site uses a CSS style sheet which defines font size in px and it increases and decreases OK in Firefox and IE7
EDIT - this is not my PlusNet site

Re: Text size

I did read that you use Mozilla so you may not wish to consider IE7. But IE7's zoom Ctrl +/- (or a bottom right window button) also resizes graphics so does not distort the page as I think other browsers do.
