    hi branchandroot---

    in case it helps, here are screen images:
    side-by-side comparison of Sidebar-worksafe screencap from the OP/poll, and what I actuallly get when I choose this view, #1
    ditto, for the other half of the screen
    how IJ default dropdown homepage appears when i am logged out, i.e., it's scaled correctly.

    as you can see, it's not just that the sidebar view option has large font. the whole layout is scaled up. font might (or might not) remain proportional.... i'll leave that to the designers to figure out.

    good luck!

      Hi! This issue should be fixed now. There are no longer any font definitions in the site style sheets, so what you see now should be your browser default font.

      If that is still larger than you prefer, you can change it to whatever suits you best by going into the menus under Safari > Preferences > Appearance and resetting your default fonts. Resetting that will cause the entire site sizing to scale down, because the layout widths are all defined proportional to whatever font is in use.

      Changing your default font will also cause any other websites that do not have a font defined to display in your preferred font and size, so that's an extra bonus.

      Strike the previous reply. Squeaky hasn't loaded the new sheets yet. Hopefully that will happen today.

      Okay. Now try how your site pages look.
