Please Please Please Please Please

Please --

I am not young but I am not old

however - please understand that when you type on the forum

use "returns" - you know - the little button that says "enter", every once in a while

eleventy million letters run toether to make seventy million lines of text are very difficult to read and follow

and everyone's story is important

jeanette,

Here are a few suggestions to help you...

Copy and paste the post you want to read into a Word document and edit it within by increasing font size and creating your own spacing.

OR

You can increase the font size of your computer screen...I have a PC and in the lower right corner you will see just how big your font is

OR

You can find the 'Page' icon at the top of your toolbar and increase the text size that way.

I hope this helps. My eyes are no longer of the 20-20 variety! :o

If you are already reading a post someone has started, you can't start a new thread. you have to go back to the main baord and there is a button at the top that says "New Topic"

I am young and it is hard for me to follow a giant block of text. I don't think it is my eyes - I just get lost in there. I try to break up everything I write into smallish paragraphs.

bump. It's so very hard to read sentences after sentences after sentences without some sort of punctuation break.. A new paragraph a line between thoughts, some periods, questions marks and commas. All helpful tools.

Please try to make your posts readable. You may get more help if people can read your thoughts without run on sentences.

I agree it's hard to read the long run on shares as my eyes age. Tyfs.

I think I will ask our administrators to ask the hosts to include a text size button in their format!

I might be one of the offenders. Oops. :oops: have to use bad touch screen to type msg. It takes a long time to type and there are usually a few mistakes. Spacing isn't something I worry about at this stage. But I totally see your point

Bump. The chances of your post being fully read are much greater if you use paragraphs. One long, run-on post will cause people's eyes to glaze over before they reach the end. The chances of receiving useful ESH are greater if you make your post easier to read. Thank you!
