I printed out a recipe from this website and it comes out in such small print that these old eyes have a hard time reading it. I don't see anything on the site that makes the print larger. I have copied and pasted the recipes, but it is time consuming and there is a lot that comes with the copying that has to be deleted. Anyone have any suggestions?

VBB has said that this is another thing they are working on and that it will soon be corrected.  I hope so!

  Larger print would be very helpful to most of us.  Please consider doing this.

Hanukkah?

All I could find was one Chocolate Chip Cookie Menorah.  Am I missing something?  Does anyone know where the Hanukkah section is?  Thanks.   Sharon

I've noticed that too.  Well, it does say they are working on it!

 Fortunately I have a newer printer that corrects this problem onboard. I need larger print to see also which is why I use 10 pt as default on here too..

Sharon,
If you are interested, as a Christian I have some recipes from my Jewish friends such as Hamentashen. If you are interested I can post it.

I have to agree the print is way too small.  Even the posts are hard to read using the regular font.  Although I can enlarge the font to type it still comes out small when it actually posts.  Very frustrating.

The print is too small and too pale.
It's not difficult to hit B to make your message bold but the time adds up.
