    I didn´t even know it was possible to add this feature to a website, it has to be the ultimate hit in making your site friendly for every user, since we all have different needs when it comes to reading on a computer.  I´m starting to create a website and I´ll add this for sure, and brag about it.

      Many people are familiar with just pressing  ”SHIFT +” or “SHIFT -” to zoom in or out of a web page, which will increase or decrease the font size on any website.  But you also have the option of creating a website with a font size changing tool, as we show above.  If you think your visitors will need this, it will have a solid impact on your visitor experience especially if your visitors are of older age and would appreciate the ability to increase the text size to make it easier on their eyes.  The best part is that this is so easy to implement with our web page maker.

      It’s great that you now know how to make a website with a test resizing tool.  You basically listed all the benefits of doing so right there!  Thanks for your comments.

    This is so much better than the traditional zoom the page if you can´t read! It makes it a better experience and gives more quality to the site, it just makes a website be more personal.

      I totally agree, because so many people don’t even know how to zoom in on their browser.  This means that if the text is too small, they simply wont read it and will just bounce.  That’s why its important when you make a website to take this into account.  Using our free website builder, you can so easily add this text resizing tool anywhere on a given web page or on the entire site.
