    The font of the typeface I'm using (KindGothic) is set to HUGE. The font all over is indeed large. Except in text messaging. It had been large there too but it suddenly changed to a smaller font. I don't know why it changed, nor can I find a font setting that is just for text messages. Can anyone suggest where this setting is - and why it suddenly changed?

    There isn't anything in the Text Message that says anything like "text size. Not even in the "Advanced Messaging" section unless you mean character encoding which is set to default alphabet. What does it say about size in Settings in your version of Android?

    What phone do you have and what texting app are you using?

    LG K20 Plus. I'm using the text app that came with the phone. Font was the same size in all text messages as the font on everything else on the phone since I've had the phone, until a couple of days ago. And the list of text messages is still the right size. It's when I open a text message or make a new one that the font is small.

    Have you tried pinch and zoom within the LG texting app?

    I so rarely use "pinch & zoom" that it was not something that even occurred to me. That resolved the problem. It said it was zooming to 137% - I still don't know why it had been so small that it needed "zooming". But it's usable and good now.

    Thank you tube517;).
