Dave, suddenly the screen dialogues (member posts) are too wide for my screen. The words keep going off the right side and I have to use the arrow at the bottom of my screen to scroll to the right.

I have no problem with the index (topic title) screens. They all fit easily on my screen. Any idea of what's up?

TonyŚwild guess here. Have you by chance increased your print size. I do it for ease of reading and on some forums it cuts off the right side. Just a thought.. never mind I have that trouble on some but not all threads. One of the threads is real small. It is the oxygen concebtrator thread that is iittsy bisty.

Good thought Paul, but no I haven't changed my print size and now that I've played around with it, it's even odder. The problem doesn't happen on every thread, only on some. This conversation is fine, but others not. It must be those electronic gremlins. If I give it a little time, they might just go away on their own.

Some people know this... some don't.
I use an external mouse and it has a roller on top between the buttons. Changing the size of what you see is a simple matter of holding down the control (ctrl) key and moving the roller up to make things bigger and down to make them smaller.

Tsainta - Yes, I am seeing the same thing.. When I have seen this before (here and elsewhere) I wonder if it is because of what type of device the sender is using like an ipad, etc. I've found that when the next person in the same forum quotes the one with the long lines, it appears in the normal size (long lines now reduced to regular pattern. Haven't found anyone mention this let alone question site manager to find an answer. Good for you...would hate to see this become an ongoing issue with so many different devices that people type/respond to our posts.

Dave it is not on your end. Most threads are fine only some are weird. Like I said before the thread on oxygen concentrators is real small-unreadable.it is happening to multiple people.

maybe someone else can help.
Go to forum "O2 Support & Lung Function"
Click on post "Oxygen Concentrator" by Moltenflower (first on list)
This is what we are talking about.
Any help would be appreciated.
I just rechecked and post is still there with the long scroll.

It was the links. Your screen did not wrap them. I shortened them, try now.
