Excluding the Home and Forums buttons, I find the buttons font for the others to be way too small.

Surely that is something you can adjust with your browser. Using chrome, if I hold cntl and use my mouse wheel, the fonts all get bigger/smaller to be whatever size I want.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

I know how to do that if need be. But the matter of fact is that at home I have a 1000 pixel width screen, just as much as a lot of other people. Thus, expanding an area well beyond the scope of the screen, which means resorting using the scroll on the bottom.

Can't edit my post? *sigh*

Also, if you're using a laptop, is there even a way of doing so? I have also a laptop, and I don't think I even know a way in that particular instance.

Doesn't your laptop have some sort of scrolling mechanism? Maybe a sensitive strip on the right of the touch‑pad?

For the Laptop, nope. Just the normal pad plus left and right click.

As for the PC, the screen is still 1000 pixels lol, which cannot be "fixed" :p

Cmd+ and Cmd- for the Mac.

With my 56-year-old eyes, I use it a lot!

I think the Sami might be talking about the beta view. Is that right Sami?

Ctrl/Cmd +/- also work in the beta view (if that is what you meant)

That's exactly right. I thought the title implied that lol. Perhaps I should have clarified the title. My bad.


@Maneesh: can be useful on laptop, but I'm worried on a global scale.

Someone else too already suggested that the default font size in the beta view is much smaller than the one in regular view. So we have fixed in and will be available when we push a new deployment containing more beta view changes. Thank you for the feedback.
