I learned the file to change global text size is below.
despite chrome saying it was in global it appears when I changed the font percentage here it had my desired effect, hopefully this helps someone else trying to do what I did.
on a side note, I am just trying out ghost and I absolutely love it. if I could change one thing it would be commenting to add info for noobs like myself.
It is not that I did not understand the code, for some reason the files here seem unformatted in comparison to the files within the ‘css’ folder… the ‘built’ folder files appear unformatted… I am not sure why but I tried emacs/pico/nano as editors and they all had the same result… might be something to look at.
lastly, I am not 100% satisfied with my solution, as I wanted to change the actual size, and in many areas I see references to font-size but the only one that helped appears to be the percentage rather than a specific body section… I would rather ahve changed the ‘2em’ or ‘1.5rem’ (as examples) to something smaller so I know exactly what I am doing rather thana global setting. but it accomplished what I wanted.
thanks again for all of your help!
thank you all for the assistance!
