ok.
silly question
how does one actually increase the font size?
I've highlighted and clicked, changed the number, read the manual, etc
no joy
I'm sure the really simple solution is staring me in the face... :surprise:

Just highlight the text you want to change, go up and click that font size bit, then adjust the number there.



It works like this

dekcuf if I can do it :mad:

Should a drop down menu of numbers show up or something after I've clicked on the font size icon?

no, its changing the number in the html code [size=10pt ][/size] = where it says 10 you change that number to whatever you want, from 1 up to ... um, well I'm not sure how large it can handle  :eek:

best way to check if you are getting it right is to click on 'preview' (next to post button) and you can have a looksie

once you get the hang of that you can change colour, make it move across the page, make it bold....all at once  :lol:

Have been doing exactly that  - typing, highlighting, clicking on Font size, changing number, previewing...but still no joy.

Best leave it for now me thinks.

Thank you for your reply anyway.   :salute:

click this button  (http://www.thelastpost.co.nz/smf/Themes/classic/images/bbc/size.gif)

in the "ADD BBC tags"

you will get this  "[ size=10pt][/size]"

then change the "10"  to the number you want

then type in between the two tags what you want to shout (or whisper) about.

'twas the 'type inbetween the 2 tags' that was the vital piece of the missing puzzle.
