In general I use 14 but if I want a fancy type I construct my post in Word and paste it in AR and that always seems to work for me.

Font 14 works bette on small screens such as phone appls.

Color will accentuate it.  AR got few selctions of fonts..... Undesirable.

Tony,

Unless I am writing it directly on AR, I use the default font.  If I copy from Word, I have it preset with another font, and our website has its own default font which we preselected.  A

Gosh, I just use the standard one usually but change the color to black. I only use the 12 pt which I think is large enough.

Just saw a post which was larger & it seemed like the writer was in my face yelling!

Other way is to go into the HTML which would then turn this into a tutorial .

I generally use 14. I just like the way it looks. YOu can adjust your font while you are crafting your post. It's the font button.

I just use the standard font as it's easy to read...BUT, I change to 14 size as that makes it more legible for everyone.
