Text Size question

    Can someone please tell me how to incrtease the text size on the posts to make them easier and more comfortable to read? I have it set on the largest on LS, and that is where I prefer the size. On LS, I can just press the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel and it increases/decreases. It doesn't do that, here. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    If you use internet explorer you can try this:
    In Internet Explorer, left click once on "View" scroll down to "Text Size" then select the size you prefer.
    Does that help?

    I just tried that as well doesn't work for me either.
    It does however increase the size in the pop up window for spell check.

    I would suggest that you change your screen resolution to a smaller setting.
    Right click on your desktop go to settings tab and change it to a lower resolution.

    2nd option. In Internet explorer go to..... tools>Internet options..... then click on the advanced tab at the bottom ,then check the ignore font sizes box.
    Good luck.

    The text on PlowSite was still set to the software default, which is fixed-size. I have changed it to relative-size as I had done on LawnSite, so you should be able to make it bigger without problem now.

    Ok... Nevermind what I said above, because plsoucy took care of the problem on the server end.

    Just go to the View>Text Size window as stated above to fix your problem.

    Thanks plsoucy
