What happened to the font enlarger?

Post by 5waldos » Mon Jan 09, 2017 12:31 am

I saw it this afternoon and clicked on it to make everything here readable to the mature eye. Now it has disappeared. Where did it go?

I found it- whited out just above the logout. But now I have to click on it every time I change a page. Bring back the big fonts!

I don't even know what the font enlarger is.

Just above the logout there is a very pale A with an up and down ^. Click on it and it changes the size of the font.

Just to the left of the font changer is a printer icon and an email to a friend icon. Also very very pale. But there.

Which style do you use? I don't think the default black style has those.

Prosilver. Checked a couple of others and don't see the FE.

Thanks for typing "proslver."

I just messed up my pages and somehow went from that setting to one that shrank the page and gives me tiny white letters on a black background, with no way to get out of it, and no way to make the page larger.

Maybe once you fix your issues, 5waldos, you can help me fix mine.

Well I managed to get back to prosilver on Board Preferences, but the shrinking page size and rearrangment of topics happened when I mistakenly typed Ctrl and 130 instead of Alt and 130.

I wish I knew how to reverse that error.

I could be completely wrong, but maybe you should Google control zero first, because something makes me think that it goes to normal size with that.

Attempting Control zero now: nothing happened.

Looking more closely at what happened when I pressed Control and the numbers 130 on the numbers pad, the choices that used to be at the upper right -- View new posts, View your posts, and another than I can't remember because I never or only rarely used it -- have disappeared or gone somewhere else. The avatars that used to be on the left of the posts are now on the right, and the threads are listed by board -- talking politics, streeterville, etc. -- instead of how they used to show up, a mix of threads on various subjects, but arranged with the most recent post at the top.

All those changes made with the slip of a finger!
