abnormally large font in text fields Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Of course, you might want to try a more normal font other than Optima -- like Lucida Grande, Helvetica, Verdana, etc.

I also have used Liberation Sans, very readable.

Optima is designed for print, not the screen.

Just my 2 cents, of course. :-)

(a) It used to happen enough for it to be annoying when it did - probably about 1 in every 20 to 30 forms I came across (though not at 48 point of course, but often 14+ points and enough for some options to be obscured).
(b) Because it causes the normal size fonts on the rest of the page to become miniscule and to be honest, I have no idea if doing so would even have an effect on the font in the drop down menus.
(c) N/A.
