Font size for this forum
« on: June 12, 2012, 08:18:42 AM »
Not sure this is the right place for this: does anyone else here thing that the font size used for "code" text is waaaay too small?
Code: [Select]
This text is just too teeny-tiny!
Can you bump the font size up a notch or two?

Let's see what "tt" looks like:

Is this any better?


Well, sorta, but there's no surrounding box or even indentation for this style ...

NoCforMe,

Let me try.

Code: [Select]
This is normal.

Code: [Select]
[size=14pt]
This is font size 14.
[/size]

NoCforMe,

That is the way to do it.

Start with # and enter your code, then select all of the code and then set the font size.

Dave,

You are cheating: the [Select] has no link ;-)
Hutch can probably increase it a little bit. It is indeed a bit small compared to normal text.
You all know of course that a simple Ctrl+ increases font size in Firefox.

Cheers, Jochen

if you try to set a font or color or other attribute inside code tags, it will not be expanded
however, you should be able to set the attribute outside the code tags

Code: [Select]
[b]test1[/b]
Code: [Select]
test2[/size]

guess not - lol
it does not work like the old forum did

JJ,

I did not set the "[select]", I just hit the "#" and got the "
Code: [Select]
" and inserted the Text. The "[Select]" just appears when you post (see dedndave's post below).

dedndave,

If you follow my suggestions above (hit "#",  insert the  code, then SELECT (HIGHLIGHT) the code, then hit "Font Size") then the font size will be modified.

Dave.
