    Hi, me again lol

    Seeing as I have sight problems, am having a bit play around with my Z10, and discovered via the internet, that you can go into browser>settings>display and actions>default font size
    and change the font size for on the internet and in some apps I assume?

    However, this option isn't there on the phone? I don't get why its not even there, should be under the audio thing and it isn't. I did win the phone so I don't know about that, and I haven't a SIM in yet if that makes any difference. Its annoying as its exactly the kind of thing I want to try for my sight as was having trouble with facebook with the magnify thing.

    If anyone can help, would appreciate x

    It might be an option on a newer os then what you have on your phone.

    Mine doesn't have that option either.

    You can change it from the settings>display>font size.

    Thank you for replying

    Yeah I was thinking it might be on a software update or something? It just updated to 10.2.4 when we took it out the box. So that could be it, that its not on that update, which is annoying.

    You can also press the lower right - pull out menu - and select READER mode. In that mode, you can change the font size and it will wrap the text.

    There is no need to change font size in browser. That's not possible even on computer. You can zoom-in page and make it big or enough. Web pages are designed with certain layout in mind and that's why they have exactly specified font size. Only thing to do is zoom whole page. If you would increase font size it would ruin overall page looks.

    The reader mode, although not always working on all web pages, also can be very helpful.

    Edit: ha ha, see it was already posted before.

    Actually you can change the font size on most PC browsers. Ctrl/+ to make it bigger, ctrl/- to make it smaller.

    There are two very disappointing aspects to the way BB10 renders HTML: front selection by the user, and text reflow. This affects the browser and email. Most annoying of all are BlackBerry emails and web sites that don't render well on the phones.

    It appears you are correct today. It was not always the case however.

    Just one more step of taking control of rendering from the client, as was initially designed into HTML, and giving it to the server.

    Well, really, why should _I_ the user have any control. If they meant for me to read it with TINY print, well, obviously, they know what they are doing!


    Completely ABSURD. OS6 had Page Mode which was really handy.
