Oooh, i've just done the Ctrl F5 thing and the print is now normal 'I can actually see it without a magnifying glass' sized!! smile  Thanks for that, you (I) learn something new every day.  The page is now not the full width of the screen, though confused.  BUT smileys are back in a horizontal line smile.

NADINE!!!!  Where is the PREVIEW and the SPELL CHECK BUTTON? eeek  I don't have them either!!!! ponder

wave  Found it Nadine.  Toni, you will see the spellchecker right at the end of the buttons when you type a new message.  It has ABC on it.  Next to it is one that if you click it gives you a preview.  It just shows you what you have written in a box.

Ah, just found the preview button! The spell check is at the right end of the row of buttons above a post, and preview is just to the left of it--it only says preview if you hover over it. Oh, just noticed there is a 'paste from word' button, too. No idea how to use it! big_laugh

Why are some threads wide and some narrow? I can live with it, just puzzled! what_the_heck

Yes, I wondered about the wide/narrow/wide again bit too.......thought it was my eyes (I only had 3 G&Ts last night, honestly!).  Now, where's this preview button.....?  Oh!  There it is......I never think to have a look at those buttons up there, seeing as I don't know what most of them mean!!! embarassed

I didn't know Val could not access the site. Has she tried today I wonder?

I am guessing she uses IE8 and the previous layout would not load into that browser. This one does.

 

Danny, last night, as TA said, I tried to connect and still couldn't - but tbh I wasn't sure if it was the CSH website or not, although I was given the same message as before. I just assumed it was still ongoing!

Luckily though, I do have some e-mail addresses to contact, so no worries - just a mountain of posts to go through! whistle

Nadine " you deserve a prize for spotting the Preview option.

No idea how it got there TBH! Well done. heartbig_hug

 

Welcome back, Val. They appear to have rather missed you . .

Edit: I saw the wide/narrow switching last night and my little heart sank. However, it's not a top priority but will look at it Mon or Tue.

The small print is a problem, I have to take my glasses off to read it and it is a struggle. Hopeless if I am wearing my lenses!

Aly, have you tried the Ctrl F5 thing that Danny mentioned above?  I did and my print size was instantly enlarged.
