Honey, I shrunk the font!
« on: March 09, 2016, 09:09:50 AM »
For some reason, over the last several days, whenever I enter the site from any device, the font is tiny. I'm not sure where I may have accidentally changed something. It's only this site.

Help?

On Chrome and IE on Windows and OSX you can hold the Ctrl key and then the plus or minus to increase and decrease the font size.

Thanks. I wonder if I did that by accident. The browser is also too smart, it's remembering it across devices. Seems to have helped, we'll see how long or how extensive it works.

Thanks

The title to this thread is awesome.

...and makes me want to watch some Rick Moranis movies...or ride that crazy "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!" movie ride at Disney World where you get shrunk and the dog sneezes on you (I'm sure other things happen, but that sneeze part is the only part that sticks with me for some reason...).

If the Ctrl + solution doesn't stick...holler back!  We might have other ideas you could try.

All my best -- Elizabeth O.

Love the subject line, too. Keep me posted if this happens again. I don't now why it would have happened but will investigate if it continues or others report something similar.

In a similar line - one time I updated Windows and something happened to my fonts in email. Everytime I sent an email, the font was super tiny so I would increase the font size to make it look normal. Little did I know, the emails I was sending out were in GIANT letters! One day my friend replied, "What's with the big fonts?" I realized my gaff and then laughed like crazy because I had sent emails to my kids' doctor, my boss, etc. I had sent a "Congratulations" email to the doc because his wife had a baby. The next day the doctor's office sent a message saying the doctor would no longer accept personal emails and we could only send messages via their new contact form.  ;D I think they thought I was a crazy stalker!

At least they weren't giant letters AND all in caps! :)
