While I know that I can adjust the text size of most web pages on a per page basis, my aging eyes would appreciate a larger font when posting. The overall site text size is adequate. Just to be sure that I'm explaining this clearly, it's not the text size option in the toolbar (which doesn't seem to work in my browser); just the input text size , while posting, right here in this box.

I could probably change the size in my browser preferences/options, but that would make other web sites look huge.

Test....it looks the same, even after a Preferences change.

I agree with you. I use CTRL plus the mouse wheel to increase text size on an ad hoc basis, but the default size on this board is really small. Perhaps there's a default text size setting for the board that can be adjusted.

There does not appear to be a default setting for that but you do have many options to improve readability as you suggested. I will explore more options to find something that may be user-accessible.

No biggie, Pete. As an old-timer, I regularly need to enlarge web pages these days! No

Thanks, Peter! They do keep adding up! But each Birthday seems better than the last, largely because I remember less and less about the prior ones! scratch

Don Cuevas - You probably know this, but I thought I would mention that you can use the control key and hit the Plus (or minus to reduce size) keys. It is fast and handy for those of us with wee bit tired eyes ;-)

Certainly, Calypso. On some sites it doesn't work well or at all in text input boxes. But it works well here, as I just found out.

Nice to see you here in Michoacán.

Don Don Cuevas - Yes as you suggest that enlargement process does not always work. I should have said my suggestion was specific to this Forum format - it is one we use ourselves.

To be fair - it was Peter that came to us on our Forum that inspired me to check this out - then of course when I saw you as a contributor I knew it must be a good place to hangout!

Went to a restaurant last night that I am pretty sure would meet your approval (in Puerto Escondido). I will be writing about it on the Blog - so Stay Tuned for that.

Come to think of it, Calypso, the Control+ (Command+ on a Mac) doesn't work for me on your blog. But it does work on your forum as well as this one.

To continue fair it was Don Cuevas that inspired me to your site. Personally, I prefer it here because of his contributions as well. It really is a matter of the company one keeps and who drops by. So glad you were so inspired to drop in..

For one, I was intrigued to see you were keeping residence on both coasts. I'm sure Puerto Escondido bears good fruit for message harvest as well. Am looking forward to some flavor from both perspectives. I'm also hoping Dawg will add some Chiapas marimba beat here. I needed "All-Michoacán" in the name to make our acronym. I have a whole forum for "Beyond Michoacán", so any home beat you have is welcome here (hint).

Also, as a Coastie I hope you get a chance to look over alpinlakes posts and site.
