I don't know if anyone else is finding this a problem, but I'll shoot and see what happens.

The length of the sentences on posts (from left to right) makes it difficult for me to see people's names and avatars at the same time as reading their posts. So if I'm reading a thread, I scroll down and read all these posts, but can't tell wrote them unless I move my screen left.

Now, I can "zoom" my screen out and see everything at once. But then the letters are really small and hard to read.

I just want to see if anyone else has this problem and hear their suggestions if they solved it. I do have glasses...

i have the same problem on one of the laptops since the board migration, didn't have the problem before.
can you just drag the right margin of your browser in and make the whole thing narrower?

Nope, there's a minimum width (around 1000px), so once your window gets narrower than that, you have to scroll sideways.

You could try reading the thread in print view (link at the top of this thread, next to Subscribe and all that).

this was happening to me for a bit today, or yesterday, but it is okay now. I don't know why it happened, or why it stopped, but it was pretty frustrating.

is it a regular thing or just occasional? i have always had it happen - old boards and new - from time to time. with no apparent rhyme or reason, but i never gave it much thought.

Well, I zoomed out and am just reading things smaller. It's not too much of a problem, but just something I noticed.

calcuhater- It's something that's been constant since the move to these boards. I think for sure there is a change in length. It just requires more movement of my eyes from left to right. Which feels like a dumb thing to start a whole thread about, but I can really tell a difference!
