CHOBA Newsletters by e-mail.

Post by J.R. » Wed Sep 03, 2014 4:45 pm

Is it just me, or has Margaret reduced the font-size of the newsletters ?

I received the latest one today, and struggled to read the small print even after opening up in 'full-screen'.

I have e-mailed Margaret and will advise you all of any outcome.

Your views, (especially you older OB's), would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe the font is smaller but so what? (and I can a&dd a few years to you!!!!!) There are not less than two alternative solutions to the JR problem apart from spamming the message:

1) get some glasses or
2) hold down the CTRL key (I can't remember what it is in the UK but it is the bottom left hand one) and, whilst holding it down, press the + key on your number pad. I got the message up to about Ariel 16 equivalent before it became too large for my screen. You can get to "normal" with CTRL and -


of course you could always ignore the message

(b).... Your ctrl trick worls fine.

(C).... I have spoken to Margaret this afternnon.

Mine looked the same as usual, John. I had no problem reading it, with my reading glasses, never had such things in my CH days!
