:hi: Mon

Can you see my fonts different up the top there? And here ?

If you can then yep, I can change em....

Do your message, 'highlight' (y'know make it go grey) what you want to change, then press the red A above in the Yabbc tags. It'll bracket it all starting with Erase Verdana then put the name of your font in.

Hope that makes sense...Im so crap at trying to give instructions  :)

I have trouble with adjusting the font sizes though. They never show up any different for me.

 :hi:


 :roll: :roll:

Well I have been palying around with  diff fonts ..

Looks good . I sometimes  get it right  and also  The size I cannot get right either ..

Comes out  tiny  depending on font type  so I get confused  as my eyes  need adjusting .. :roll:

Also  I am thinking Glasses would not be a bad idea .. Must get tested I think

Hi Mon,

Hang on, I'm quite confused which fonts and sizes you are having problems with. Please remember that fonts etc are controlled by YOUR PC, not the forum. So what you want to put in the message may not be what I see. I won't see the same as you.

Can you tell me what font, what size and how you think it looks wrong.
For example, in one post you used Harrington font. I don't have Harrington installed so I will never see what you are seeing if you have it on your PC, likewise if you don't have Harrington instanned in your fonts then you won't see Harrington either.
That's why web sites tend to use just a few simple fonts like Verdana or Arial.

Ahhh I get it now...aww thats sad  :( I wunder if anyone can see my Kristen font? Im using it here.

Do you think we would be safe if we stuck with TT fonts Nick? Thats a shame cos I'v added loads of groovy fonts to my PC, but if you cant see them, well Im just gonna go and sulk  ::)
