So I never used to have an issue reading the screen on RPOL. But lately, it feels like the font size has shrunk. Is there a way of increasing the font size on my preferences?

Is rPol the only place you have trouble with font size? If not, you could change your computer's default font size and/screen resolution...

Your browser, phone, tablet, etc. should all have their own way to change font size as well...  on the Android, it is under Setting -> Display -> Font Size and Style

^^ That's great advice.

I use Safari as my default browser and the path to adjust a particular website's default size is: Safari > Settings For This Website ...

Interestingly, when I checked my settings for RPoL, I already had the Page Zoom set to 115%.

I guess in addition to having my eyesight get worse through the years I can add becoming forgetful to the list as I had totally forgotten that I had already adjusted the font size.  :)

In reply to Yozi (msg # 4):

Yeah...the touchpad on my laptop has some screwy sensitivity issues...sometimes, I'll have to tap it five or six times or even skip tapping it and actually use the buttons, and other times, I'll be typing and some weird combination of part of my hand being JUST close enough to activate the pad plus whatever keystrokes I'm making at the time will shift the zoom settings on Chrome for me.  So, it's pretty easy to do...*laugh*

The first thing I do with any laptop with a touchpad is to turn that stupid thing off.
