    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    First of all, are you using our app? You will find a link below for it, I find it so much simpler to use. Once you have it you will see a More tab along the bottom, press this, then Settings, then Forum Reading options. You will find a setting here for Font size, always easier to read when the font is larger I find. Below you will find a lot of info to get you started on your iPad......sit back, get comfy as you're in for a big read. Enjoy!

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad. There is a wealth of information already here in the many threads we have so doing some searches will answer most of the questions you have. If then you cannot find the answer you are seeking then by all means post your question. There are many friendly and informed members here only too willing to help you.

    We also have our own App - It is a very simple app to navigate.
