Click the green arrow in the upper, right corner of your Chrome Browser.
Find Zoom on the menu.
Increase the size.

I've got mine at 110%.

If you have a regular keyboard, [ Ctrl ] [ + ] zooms in and [ Ctrl ] [ - ] zooms out.

Can also increase font size by holding down Ctrl button while using your mouse's scroll wheel.

In other words, there are no controls in the platform, you have to do it manually.

By George, I think he's got it!

When posting in a thread, I'm not able to post larger letters, than the ones that I've posted now, any suggestions?

This is of no help, since I'm unable to locate the button on this forum to change it.

I am unable to post a screen-shot, but when you reply, hit the "Go Advanced" button, and you will see it in the menu.

Alternatively, use the BB code:


Increase the [SIZE="7"**Font Size[/SIZE]?


Replace the ** with ]

Go to one of the advanced editing menus, and you should be able to set the font size.

I have yet to find the button, but using the BB code advice by @wgscott, seems to be doing the trick. On some videos, the underscored A in the menu box was used to change the font size, but in BF it only changes the color of the font.

Outside of using the BB code, there is no way to change font size at the moment.
