    Im finding the forum hard to use

    It's very hard to use on my phone now that I am writing a post the font is enormous and I can't see what I'm writing and this scaling issue seems to be a problem looking at the forum itself and posts. Have i missed a trick to make it more phone friendly?

    I just selected a different size front but it hasn't made any difference to what I can see as I'm writing.

    Apologies for the lack of punctuation and enormously long sentences!

    Hi CS;

    I guess you've tried the the "Text size" just above the search box at the top right of page.

    It's even harder writing when you can't see the whole sentence, I have that trouble with my Lightwriter.

    Love Terry

    Hi Lisa

    No need to apologise - I find it fiddly to post using my phone too!

    As mentioned by Terry, on the top right hand corner there is Text Size (with 'A' in 3 sizes next to it) - I didn't realise this at first, and was squinting for a long time before I noticed!


    If you don't have an i-pad, it might be worth your asking your Speech and Language Therapist if she/he can supply you with one free of charge - or perhaps ask the MNDA if they can provide funding for one? (I find that the keyboard on an I-pad is much easier to use than the one on my phone).

    I hope you and your lovely daughter are ok.

    Love and best wishes to you both.

    Hi Kayleigh and Terry, I've found that but for some some reason it doesnt work as i type. I suspect the issue is it's a desktop site running PM a phone which makes it impossible to use. I do have an ipad, but i also have an 11 year old app not likely to get in on that then
    Sounds like this is something they should look at,i find a phone easier to hold and use than an iPad. Also it's 2019 hehe

    Hi Lisa,

    It's terrible that the Council hasn't sorted out your housing yet! - hopefully the MP will kick some butts at the Council, so that they find somewhere for you very soon! Although it might not be ideal, I'm glad you are able to stay at your mum's in the meantime.

    I hope you had a great holiday in Rome - despite all those bumpy cobbles!

    Love,
    Kayleigh x

    Hi Cat.' I use my index finger and thumb on my phone screen and separate them to enlarge, pinch them towards each other to make smaller. I'm right handed so normally use that hand. But my fingers mostly on my right hand are getting weak. Sometimes it's difficult to do so I use two hands to do the same thing, not always successfully. I guess that you can't use your fingers this way but there may be a way to do it. Lynne

    Hi Lynne, i can't do that with my fingers any more so I use the limited dexterity function box on my phone, its very useful.however, if it had a phone friendly interface we wouldn't need to constantly zoom in and out
