Unhappy May be a silly question

Question 1: Is there a way to increase the font size on here to make reading and posting easier?

I bought one of the new design spray/misters to spray my quilt blocks, the problem is I haven't been able to figure out how to get it open to put the water in.

Question 2: Can anyone tell me how to open it? I feel like I am going to break it trying to open it. I haven't had any luck. Help appreciated. thanks

I look at the link at the top of my computer screen there. it shows 133% or more. Just adjust if you see that.

There are so many spray/misters out there. Can you post a photo or a link so we can see it?

That works if your browser is set up to show that but not all of them are. You can make the screen bigger or smaller either by pressing ctrl and using the roller on your mouse or by going to settings setting your zoom percentage higher (in Firefox)

This is normal font. In theory, it is size 3. This is a +2 font. and now it is normal again.


So html code is always in < these brackets. > The code to write inside the two brackets for the size blow up that I did is: font size ="+2"

to turn off html code use /font inside the brackets.

I've attached a screenshot so you can see what is actually typed into this message to get the message you see.

Answer 1: What are you reading the QB on? Phone, computer, etc? If you're using a computer, simply hold down the CTRL and hit the + to get the size you want.

Answer 2: Yes we need a pic of the item you're talking about. The top doesn't twist off counter-clockwise??

Peckish, your way is much easier than learning html code! I didn't know the CTRL + shortcut so thank you!!

Does you mister resemble one that looks like these? https://www.amazon.com/Houseables-Co...%2C136&sr=8-10

IF so then to open you must forcefully unscrew them to the left. I had the same problem when I got mine. They wouldn't budge and I thought if I applied any more pressure I would break it. However, when I finally applied more pressure turning it to the left, it finally opened. It doesn't have a normal screw type mechanism and you will also find that when you close it after taking it off, you have to be sure it is locked in place or it will fall off.

I love what cashs mom posted. I never knew you could use the mouse & the ctrl button. Thanks so much for that tip.
I always just went to the top of my screen (very top tool bar), found the three little lines & clicked on that. Then found the zoom & increased/decreased that way.
Your way is so much easier.
