how to change font type and line spacing

Posted

When I zoom pages, selecting zoom text only, the lines start to overlap on each other (please see the attached image), How do I change the line spacing please?

I also need to change the default font to be Arial. But it doesn't work for sites like Google and Facebook.. their font type do not change. Is there a way to force my preferred font please?

(I'm using Linux Lite 4.6)

This can happen when websites position elements absolutely. When you use zoom text only in this case then you only zoom the text in a container and not the container element itself, so content no longer fits in the container and ends up in a next container and you get text overlap. There is nothing you can do to prevent this and you will have to use full page zoom and not zoom text only.

What is against using full page zoom ?

Question owner

Full page zoom doesnt make text large enough for me, specially with pages like Facebook. I have my laptop positioned 1.5 meter away to protect my eyes, so I need to enlarge text way more than full page zoom can.

I can use Stylebot, but that makes me stuck with Google Chrome!

You can define your own zoom values in 5% steps via a pref on the about:config page and go as far as you want.

toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues :
.1,.15,.2,.25,.3,.35,.4,.45,.5,.55,.6,.65,.7,.75,.8,.85,.9,.95,1,1.05,1.1,1.15,1.2,1.25,1.3,1.35,1.4,1.45,1.5,1.55,1.6,1.65,1.7,1.75,1.8,1.85,1.9,1.95,2,2.05,2.1,2.15,2.2,2.25,2.3,2.35,2.4,2.45,2.5,2.55,2.6,2.65,2.7,2.75,2.8,2.85,2.9,2.95,3,3.25,3.5,3.75,4,4.25,4.5,4.75,5,5.5,6,6.5,7,7.5,8,8.5,9,9.5,10
zoom.maxPercent = 1000
zoom.minPercent = 10

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
