    Like it or not....how does it appear?  I've read many conflicting reports.  Some say bigger, some say smaller.  Some say sharper - others not so much.

     

    So.....if you would be so kind...

    How does the new font appear to you?

     

    What internet browser do you use ?  Internet explorer or fire fox?

     

    What operating system do you have?  XP, Vista or something else.

     

    Thanks!

    I like the actual font, but it's so small I have to get closer to the screen to read it.

     

    I use MSN as my browser. I have Vista, but it's set up to look (and work, I guess) like Windows.

    I run Vista.. IE 8 point something..   original was great... new very small and very light.. I adjusted page etc... page size at 150% brings it to where it was before the change and set it at Bold.. I can read it now... when it first changed saturday?  I honestly could NOT see it all all even with my bifocals.....

    I use FireFox & Vista. The font is not bigger nor smaller for me.  Just, well.....it just looks cleaner, and sharper to me.  I like it.  It kind of looks like "Arial" font?

    False

    It's very small,Sue. I did take someone's advice on here and changed it using my  "Internet options",and that helped some. But it messed up everywhere else I went.

     

    The new font honestly gives me a headache..and I have a 22 inch(?) monitor. Im pretty sure I have Internet Explorer.

    I like it. I have a MAC computer and use Safari. I agree that it is sharper, and clearer. IMO it is easier to read.

    It's just another font to me.

     

    XP---IE-8 here, I just scrolled & hit the ctrl key...I'm at 120%, which I think is less than I was using awhile back.

    False

    I have IE and  XP. I have HP computer and apparently don't have some of the things to change type as others. I don't have zoom and cannot hit Control and move the mouse wheel to change sizes as some do. I went to Accessibility, but then it made everything else on my computer HUGE!

    I normally only stay on the Grannie Neighborhood, but the print is so small it makes me squint and can't see it well with any of my trifocals. If I take off my glasses I must get less than a foot from the screen, which is no good either. I am 76 years old and greatly enjoy chatting here, but will have to find another site and new friends if this continues. which I will hate to do. Been here since the board first began in 2001.
