This is what it looks like when I remove your manual line breaks. The forum should automatically place line breaks to fit the display it's being viewed on. The only time you need to put a line break in manually is at the start of a new paragraph. Otherwise, you can let the forum take care of it for you.

Well that's no fun. When I open a book, it doesn't have text flying from one end of the page to another. It usually has several columns if the print is rather small. If much larger font, it's easy on the eyes being a single column of text. These forums have a very unnatural long stretches of text from one end of my monitor to the other end. That's harder on my eyes.

I want to know from you guys with small devices, what the character wrap-length is so you don't end up with extra line spacing, especially if I post Bullet Points or some such. That'll look messy if left up to the device to wrap the line, yes?

I already have my FF browser set for x5 Zoom for the AVS site.

There. I typed this reply with no shortened line-cuts. It hurts my eyes doing this way.

Wow, a readable post! Thanks, and keep it up!

Please remember that you post for your audience, not (normally) for yourself. We (and you) can vary the way the text wraps by modifying the zoom level in our browsers, and portable devices will attempt, mostly quite successfully, to do that for us automatically. Hitting the return key at the end of every line breaks the ability of said portable devices to keep the text flow looking natural, and it looks weird for other reasons in a desktop browser. Only hit the return key at the end of a paragraph, or when the bell rings on your typewriter.

I've attached a screen shot of what your post looks like in a browser that's been "zoomed" appropriately for book-like reading. I'm using a different theme than most (I prefer Retro), which explains the color scheme you see. Oh, and the slight blurriness is because I re-scaled the image to something more reasonably sized for a non-4K desktop display.

You can easily control the zoom level in Chrome (and Firefox, I just checked) with Ctrl + and Ctrl - or Ctrl Mousewheel up/down. And when you do that, the text re-flows automatically to fit your screen ... whether you're just reading or typing a response
