Hi,

My eyes are not that good anymore, and it's really hard for me to read these small words. I just found how to change the size I type. But is there any way to change the font size of the posts I read?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolfūüźĺ

I have to use my Browser's settings up to 125%+ to get it to where I can read it, that is my only suggestion.  Some of the edit functions on the top line, such as font size get pushed out of the picture though.

A quick way to resize is to use CTRL & + keys

 And of course, CTRL & - (minus) keys work just as well to reduce the font sizes.

Okay, this has taken quite a bit of tweaking as Invision does not offer this option as standard, and I've not actually found it in their "marketplace" where modders offer their add ons for the forums.

 

If you look at the Nav Bar at the top of ach page, just below the Trans Pulse Logo, you should see a pair of "A's", click on the left hand one fontminus.jpg to reduce the font size, and right hand one fontplus.jpgto increase the font size.

 

If is set to only go up or down two steps, any more and the layout of the forums is ruined. If you have used font sizes in your post, then this will not change. It only affects "normal" text and is restricted to the posts and the widgets on the right hand size, not your details on the left of a post. Hope you like and find it useful.

It's working well here.

It is taking me a bit of juggling between my browser size percentage and what the buttons do, but that is just my old eyes in a way but I think it will be helpful in the long run.  Good job, I would have no idea how to pull it off this well.  I can see all the options on the composition box here, which gets goofed up if I go up another notch on my browser control.

The "A+/A-" buttons and the "Ctrl +/ Ctrl -" keyboard methods work great on my desktop, but

the only way I could do anything similar on my Android 10 smartphone is to go to Desktop Mode

when viewing the site in Chrome, for example, and use the "A+/A-" buttons, which allowed me to increase the font size from Seriously Small to Squinting Small¬†ūüėĀ.¬† If anyone knows of other ways to increase the font size

when viewing on their phones, that would be great!

Afraid it'll only work on a Desktop computer. The only way I've found on a mobby is to use two fingers and drag apart so as to increase the size of whatever you are viewing, can't guarantee it'll work on everything though, or every site.

Actually, I am happy to report that the text +/- works perfectly on both 2017 & 2019 iPads running iOS 14.1. The buttons only affect the text size within the post on each thread and has no effect on the text size on right side panel showing the previews of those posts. I’m not sure if it works that way on a desktop or not but that’s something I’ll likely check dow the road unless someone else uses a desktop for this forum and wants to comment. I rarely if ever use TP forums on a desktop.

 

It‚Äôs a very nice added feature,¬†Petra Jane. I‚Äôm at that age where I use reading glasses after about an hour on my iPad. This may curtail that another half hour..lol.ūüėĀ¬†

 

Thank you!

      Finally having drug myself from bed, I have put coffee on to brew. I suppose it's a quiet morning of playing with my aussie and boxer before I head to work. I'm feeling a green tank dress.   Cheers to all, and good morning!

      I agree with @Charlize about therapy. Finding a warm and understanding therapist is vital. HRT without therapy is not a wise decision. I went through therapy with several therapist over the years who treated depression and panic attacks but didn't treat gender dysphoria. Finding someone who does understand GD is the most important thing I have done besides finding this forum with so many others who have a commonality. we are all different with different needs but common goals and it is so reassuring to have the ladies and gents here to lend an unconditional ear and give advice from experience.

      Yeah.   I lived in this world for years.  I tried to conform myself to what was expected.  Eventually I began to accept reality.  It was very liberating.  I wouldn't say I am an atheist now, but my view of "God" has been drastically altered.  But that would belong in a different thread.   I don't have a problem with Christianity really.  A lot of Christians I know are fine people.  I guess it was just having spent so much of my life in a toxic conservative-christian environment I had to let it go. It is encouraging to see more Christians becoming more accepting of people like us.

      You ladies all look absolutely fabulous.   Today I am wearing the luxury edition of head to toe dark navy blue provided by Garda CL. With fashionably heavy accessories by Bulletsafe and Galls. Lol

      Welcome Drake.  Finding this site was a lifesaver for me.  As an addict in recovery i found that a problem shared is a problem halved.  Simply knowing others understood what a was going through, because they were going through or had gone through the same things,  has been so comforting.  You are amongst friends even though we might be virtual we are here!   Hugs,   Charlize

      This is me too.  But if it makes you happy, thats all that matters.   Jani

      I was annoyed that i was required to have therapy and a letter from my therapist before HRT.  It had been recommended here and i listened.  Today i'm glad i did.  I learned a great deal and over time when the inevitable doubts come up i remember events and understanding i found in therapy and know it was time and money well spent.  There have always been some who regret transition.  HRT creates permanent differences. We are all different, with different paths but i am glad that i followed the recommendations of those who guided me to therapy.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Greetings Vivienne Claire.  I'm another late bloomer who started at 61, five years ago.  Its been a wild ride at times but I am happier with my new life and I trust you will be too.  Hang in there and keep moving forward.  You'll ride out the bumpy days and be stronger.   Cheers, Jani

      I did not need therapist approval for HRT. I talked to my family doctor and found out about a wonderful LGBTQ+ health care network. They aligned me with a NP and had a consult and when I had baseline blood tests and shared records from my doctor I started HRT and have 3 month checks. It is so important to be monitored. 5 years ago I self Grated with gray market E and Spiro and it did cause prostate issues that took years to correct after biopsies and a bunch of tests and treatments. Having your doctor and if your doctor isn't conversant in HRT (as my doctor wasnt) he was willing to share medical info so I can have a SAFE and monitored transition. I don't know how things are in different states or countries but I lucked out and found a therapist who specializes in gender identity and she recommended Equitas in our state and they have been amazing.

      Completely agree and hugs back.

      The fact that he thought of us in an positive way means a great deal!     Hugs,   Charlize

      Welcome dear.  I'm glad you are here to share your journey.  I know my typing has improved immensely since i poked my head nervously into this site and found a safe place.  Sharing fears and accomplishments has made a big difference.  Somehow the rough spots were smoother and the joys were stronger when shared with folks who understand.   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Vivienne Claire
      Thank you an I am glad you got something from my post.  Like you say, each of our journeys are different but similar at the same time.  I agree about one step at a time.  I try to just focus on the next step.
