Guys I don´t know if there is some setting I need to do when viewing and posting on this forum, but the font size is tiny! And when I either zoom in with my touch screen Chromebook, or use the usual zoom on my MacBook it goes right over to the right so I cannot see what I am typing. I have to practically have my nose right up to the screen. Can you make it square and larger?

Keith:
Hi Melissa.

Chromebooks are available in screen sizes: 11.6, 13.3, 14, 15.6 inches.  Which is yours?  If it's a small one, then the text will be very small in order to fit it all on the screen.  Expanding the text size will naturally put some text off-screen so that you have to scroll to see it. 

One thing you could try if you are running Firefox on your Chromebook is to click on the small, rectangular "page" icon at the right-hand end of the Firefox address bar.  This will display just the text without any graphics and the text is larger.  I attach a screen shot of it.

Hi, I've tweaked some of various font sizes .. how does it look now?

Matilda:
Guys it's nothing to do with my Chromebook. I've been on this forum since 2011 and had several laptops/netbooks and the set up of this forum is the same on each one. The problem is that to view a thread/post you have got a long rectangle box, not a square one which does not fit onto any screen! You need to make the message/post boxes square not rectangle.

Matilda:
This shape.
