Forum fonts

Is it me or have the fonts on the forum changed? The type seems smaller and more difficult to read and I can't find any setting to change it to a more readable font.

The font has not been changed. Maybe you have enabled zoom in your browser?

Hi Pablo

The zoom in my browser, Chrome, has not changed and is still 100% - perhaps I need to visit an optician :D Just to check I also have had a look in Edge and the font still seem smaller to me - very strange.

I’m just using my iPad and the font is definitely smaller.
I think it was normal on my desktop earlier but have not tried it recently on my desktop.

The forum has been upgraded to the latest version this morning, but I did not change the default style.
There is no option to change the default font as far as I know.

Thanks Pablo and others who responded, at least I know it is not me!

Now it's bigger but still annoying. Try finding a better font Pablo.

I have attempted to restore the style sheets from the previous version of the forum.
It should now be the same a before.

Also note that I did add a new forum style: basic
You can select it in the 'User Control Panel' of the forum.

For me, it's size that is important!! :wink: Not sure if the font is exactly the same but I am sure I will get used to it. Thanks again.

Tried them all, but they are all hard(er) to read than what we had this morning.

I think this is the font we had:

Just use that font and size?
