I tried to endure it for the past few weeks, but, I am getting frustruating to not be able to make the fonts in this web site bigger. I tried the View > Text > Large or whatever, nothing changed. Is there a trick?

Hold down CTRL and move the mouse wheel. Works on any web page.

I'm on a Mac using 10.3.9 and neither of those suggestions work on the Firefox browser.

I'm on a Mac and Firefox.

Holding down Command (Apple) and the + key works like a champ.

Just FYI, one pc works but the other don't. One has XP Pro, one has XP home; former has IE 7, later has IE6; former has MS Mouse, later has Micro Mouse... I can't begin to figure what is the culprit. However, the bottom line is, looks like the author of this site lock the View fonts option.

It's not the site. I can change the font size here in the forum in either IE or Firefox. I suspect it's the mouse software on your second computer.

Hi Doug,

I have a PC running windows XP and when I press the Ctrl key and move the wheel on the mouse, nothing happens. I really don't need to change the font size, I was only experimenting. Nothing happens.

Thats because it a feature of the Mac OS. In OS X holding down control and using the mouse scroll douse a zoom of the entire screen.

Ralph, I don't know what to tell you. This feature works for me, and has worked on every computer and mouse combination I've had since the scroll wheel came out.

Zrb, I don't see how the Mac OS has anything to do with it. I'm talking about a feature of Windows.

Doug Graham

For those of you who can't get CTRL+scroll wheel to change the size of your fonts, there is an option in the View menu of both Firefox and Internet Explorer to change the font size.

Doug & others,
Ok, as I stated before, the ctrl-mouse wheel only works in certain setup, I am not sure how and why? The view > Font size is disabled in this forum per designer, I guess. That's why I am saying, why disable such a important feature? Some larger monitors' fonts are just too small in this forum. They should design a web site that is dynamic to the fonts size, not to restrict that.

$.02

Again, it's got to be something in your system. View/Text Size is enabled on my machine here and works fine. It isn't a forum design issue.

I don't know if it'll help, but FireFox has some additional Font options, such as specifying a minimum font size, or forcing pages to use your fonts rather than theirs. You can find these in Tools/Options/Content/Advanced.

Doug Graham

Hi,

It's kind of funny that my font size is ok and I'm happy with it. When I print out this forum, now my font size is really small. The Creative Cow font is a good font size, but the articles that everyone types as a response is very small. I can't figure that one out.
Can you?
