Making font size larger

I see there's no way to make the chat font larger...I can't read that tiny font for longer than a couple of minutes, so I guess there will be no chat for me, sigh.

Check out the FAQ thread which lists alternative IRC clients. I think you're using javachat? Which has limited options.

I use mIRC, which has the option of changing the font.

View (yes, weird place for it) > Font. The default system font only has one option, but there's several different options for the style.

I use Chatzilla, and the option is under View -> Font Family & Size -> Make Font Bigger (or alternately, Make Font Smaller)

Ctrl+ is the shortcut (or Ctrl-)

"Make text larger
Change the size of text and images

Zoom increases or decreases the size of everything on a webpage, including text and images. To change or reset the amount a webpage is zoomed in or out, use these keyboard shortcuts:

Zoom in: Ctrl + (Plus Sign) or scroll mouse wheel up
Zoom out: Ctrl – (Minus Sign) or scroll mouse wheel down
Reset page size to 100%: Ctrl+0 (Zero)"

That's true but the data in question isn't being served by the browser; it's being served by a Java applet, so that's not going to work on the Chat text.

But it was a kind thought.
