font size changing
« on: November 10, 2018, 08:12:53 PM »

[size=78%]any type of editing causes the font to shrink.  See?  all i did was delete a [/size]sentence[size=78%] and bring this [/size]sentence[size=78%] up a line.[/size]

[/size]now, if i increase it, this is what happens...[size=78%]

The font is the same size all the way across your post.  Check your browser settings.  I use Firefox and sometimes sizes seem to adjust themselves with no input from me.  I can easily reset them, though.

Are you saying you are not putting those font face & size tags in??  The way to get a different size on this forum is for example [size=18pt]this is in 18-point[/size] size.  (IOW, in points, not %.  I put other tags in to make the size tags show.)

Exactly!  When i move a word or sentence such as cut and paste, simply delete or backspace, the font gets really small.  I then have to highlight it and change it back to 10pt.  When posting, it then shows

Are you doing this on a smartphone rather than a real PC?  Regardless, you should be able to see the tags that are somehow getting inserted, and delete them.  Worst come to worst, you could write it in a text editor and copy and paste into the GTA "Post reply" window we're given here to write in which is not much different from a plain text editor though.

Carl,
 Which theme are you using in the "Look and Layout"?
I noticed when I changed to the dark theme "Ambassador" version from the original "Default", the quoted text got smaller. (and only the quoted text).

Just a thought

i haven't changed anything since coming aboard.  i'm using a pc with windows 10, but it also happens with my android phone.  there are times when i'd like to add to a topic, but the font changes and i give up and delete.


this software is the same as a sailing forum i'm on and i have never seen this happen on that site.


EDIT:  i just checked my profile and everything is set to default.

I see the same thing Carl when posting.  I just click on the far right arrow and then the double A's next to it to remove the unwanted formatting and return all back to the defaults.
