Hello TBird people,
I honestly can't tell if this is an off-shoot of the recent update(s) but I have had a remarkably bad time with font handling in the program, which I had not before.
This issue is that the display font of a Compose window (as in if I'm replying to a msg or composing a new one) is remarkably small. Too small to comfortably read. I thought I found the solution by adjusting the font size, but then found out from copied replies back to me, and comments from correspondents, that the font that was going out in my emails was gigantic ("old-man fonts"). At one point I looked on my screen at a reply back to me and a compose window layered on top and there were three totally different font sizes displayed, when all I want is ONE readable font. (Image attached)
Making matters worse is the confusing set of options, including one area with sizes in pixel and another in "small, medium", etc.
My current fix for this is that when I write something new, I magnify the window with Crtl-+ (Ctrl-mouse-wheel-up, actually) and have a good size to read, and then it appears to send normally. What a dumb thing to have to do every time. The issue seems to be, simply, that the compose windows *display* smaller than the rest of the program.
Any fixes that don't create other problems? Thanks
