Well, I'm not that old but my eyes are. Most of the time I can't find my reading glasses.

I'm coming across some posts that aren't broken up into paragraphs. Nothing against it, but I can't read them. It's a big blur and can't read the whole thing, even though I want to.

This is just a suggestion :)

Very good idea! I usually hit the size button too and click on #4

I agree that smaller paragraphs are much easier to read than long ones, no matter what you're reading.

I couldn't read a thing without my reading glasses!

I put my screen size to 125%, it's just enough to read easily.

I agree...shorter paragraphs are so much easier on these old eyes. Thanks for the suggestion Lorie

Lorie that was a great suggestion, I just wish I would have read this post before I responded to 12 Angry Night Owls.

Good ideas, thank you. I have worn reading glasses since I was 8 yrs old and just recently I am finding I am having a hard time seeing at all except when I am at the sewing machine. Bigger font, great advice!

You can change your default font, size and color on the my settings tab, so that you don't have to remember to change it. Hope my font choice is ok--I have the same issues.

I try to remember to break up into paragraphs, but sometimes, I just keep typing. I think it is the lack of sleep.

I read from my iPad and have to pinch the screen bigger. I'm not ready for my eyes to be old.

I can't find the link to font size in settings. Where is it? can anyone help me?
​This is font size 7. Big!

Shorter paragraphs are easier to read for anyone, because they help you finish thoughts, process and move on. One huge clump of text comes off, to me, very often as rantish and I can't always be bothered to keep reading.

When you hit enter twice, you get a paragraph. Not that difficult. And so much easier on the eyes.

Now, if I could only stop adding two spaces after every period when I am on Twitter and limited to 140 characters, I could rule the world!! (Sr. Jane lives on in my world!)

Without my reading glasses I am absolutly helpless (for all Singles: good possibility to start a talk with somebody "Would you please be so Kind and read forme, if this are pinapples or beans in tomato Sauce").
Therefor I have reading glasses all over the house and the Office. I don`t want to wear it at a necklace when putting it off. because than it is always disturbing. that`s why best is to have at least some and everywhere.

I was doing that too. One in my sewing room, car, purse. But now I misplaced one. I need to go get one of those four packs. lol

Would it be wrong to ask that people stop stringing three periods or three commas in the middle of a sentence? I find it hard to follow.
