Extension that lets the user customize the font text size, font type, font color and background color on a page.
A+ FontSize Changer A+ FontSize Changer is a Chrome Extension that lets the user customize the font text size, font text color, background color and font family on a page. It actually changes the fontSize of each element unlike Chrome's action with CTRL+ and CTRL- which zooms the page. Sometimes you wish to increase the text size without zooming the page so that paragraphs do not scroll past the edge of the screen. A+ FontSize Changer works where others fail! Even on pages with dynamic (ajax) content! Even on pages with iFrames! Just use the buttons to change the fontsize or use keyboard shortcuts ALT+ and ALT- ( or use ALT+Up Arrow and ALT+Down Arrow. You can change these hotkeys at chrome://extensions/shortcuts ) Some webpage authors use a gray text color instead of black which can be hard on the eyes. With A+ FontSize Changer you can also change the text color and background color on a page. With this feature you can also create your own custom Night Mode where you choose the text color and background color yourself and it does not invert image or video colors so that they are still viewable. PRO FEATURES: * Create profiles to save font settings and color schemes. * Saves custom font type for each website you visit * Saves custom font size for each website you visit * Saves custom font color for each website you visit * Saves custom background color for each website you visit NOTES: If ALT+ and ALT- are not working on a website then try these steps: 1. Reload the website (F5 key) or restart Chrome. 2. Click on a blank space on the website page before using the ALT+ or ALT- key. 3. Make sure that the website is not the Chrome Web Store or a chrome:// page because Google does not allow extensions to work on those pages. 4. If the website has disabled keyboard keys then click on the extension icon in the toolbar and use the buttons there. 5. If ALT+Up Arrow and ALT+Down Arrow are not working then see if they are active on the extension at chrome://extensions/shortcuts VERSION HISTORY 5/22/2020 - Version 1.3.6 - It seems that font changes and color changes were not working in iFrames since about version 1.2.5. This has been fixed. Previously, font size changes were only working if the user clicked on the iFrame first and used ALT+ or ALT- to change the size. Now pressing ALT+ ALT- and ALT-Backspace on the main page will change the text size for both the main document and iFrames without having to click on the iFrames first. Known Issue: Some iFrames with content like Disqus comments may have a problem loading saved settings correctly because of the delayed way that Disqus loads content and css. Text may get too large and crowded (line-height). This may also cause "Reset Colors" to not reset the iFrame without refreshing the webpage (F5 key). Now removes the default font from saving if reverting back to the default font on the page. 4/18/2020 - Version 1.3.5 - It now does not change the background color of elements that have a transparent background so that they can still be seen through. Also if the background-image is a gradient instead of a url then it will set the background-image to "none". 9/24/2018 - Version 1.3.4 - Added Languages in pop up. 4/16/2018 - Version 1.3.3 - Added "user-select:none" to css of the buttons in the popup. 4/6/2018 - Version 1.3.2 - Now you can use ALT+Up Arrow and ALT+Down Arrow to change text size. You can also change these hotkeys at chrome://extensions/shortcuts 3/30/2018 - Version 1.3.1 - Removed trying to make it work with Google's new tab page. With apologies it was not realized that there is no way to tell the difference between chrome://newtab and extensions that created their own new tab. 3/22/2018 - Version 1.3.0 - Lite and Pro Edition - Now the Lite Edition also changes font size by .1 increments instead of .2 increments, just like Pro. Also fixed in Lite Edition the contentEditable bug that would change size when the user changes to bold or italics. Bug Fix: Keeps the current page view scroll position in the same place after a font size adjustment for most pages by calculating the position before the change and then setting the scroll position after the change. This version also shows the color picker and the text input for color hex values, so you can manually enter hex colors or use the color picker. Also new setting added "Underline Links". So users can choose if links are underlined or not when the color is changed. The default is to "Underline Links" because on most websites it would be difficult to see the links when they are the same color as the rest of the text on the page. But some users prefer not to have links underlined. Also now line-height is adjusted if line-height is too small after a text size change. 3/21/2018 - Version 1.2.9 - Pro Edition and Version 1.2.5 - Lite Edition - Now using the custom color picker instead of the HTML 5 color picker because now some Windows users were having the same bug that Mac OS users were having of the HTML 5 color picker window opening and the extension popup closing. Using the custom color picker fixes that bug. 2/21/2018 - Verison 1.2.8 - Pro Edition - Changed the checking for dynamic content on websites from a quarter of a second to half a second to prevent too much CPU usage. In testing this brought CPU usage from 15% down to 2% or less. 1/27/2018 - Version 1.2.7 - Pro Edition - The bug fix in Version 1.2.6 was causing contentEditable elements not to change font size at all even with an actual font size change. Fixed! Also changed A+ FontSize Changer Pro to change font sizes in .1 increments instead of .2 increments. 1/26/2018 - Version 1.2.6 - Pro Edition - Fixed a bug in contentEditable elements, such as composing an email in gmail, where it would increase the font size every time the user changed to bold or italics, etc. 8/31/2017 - Version 1.2.5 - Pro Edition - Added Profiles! Now users can save and load font settings and color schemes to profiles. Changed "run_at" to "document_start" instead of "document_end" so that there is not a long delay in displaying the stored colors for a website. Fixed a bug where some websites with rotating ads in iframes would sometimes cause the saved font settings to revert to an old setting. Now the extension is only sending a message to and getting the address of the main frame. 5/8/2017 - Version 1.2.4 - In the Pro edition you can now change the font type (font-family) for each website you visit and the font family will be saved. 4/20/2017 - Version 1.2.3 - Added note in extension popup that explains that extensions do not work in special chrome:// pages or at the Chrome web store. 4/12/2017 - 1.2.2 - Bug Fix for Mac OS X. I believe I have fixed the bug that some Mac users are experiencing of not being able to change the color. Apparently Chrome extensions have a bug with Mac OS using the HTML 5 color picker where when the color picker opens the extension popup closes causing the popup to not recognize the color commands. Now using a different color picker for Mac users. 4/9/2017 - 1.2.1 - Added change event to color picker to see if it would fix the problem for some users not able to get the text color or background color to change. 9/12/2016 - 1.2 - Now you may not have to reload the current page when you first install this extension or if you disable it and re-enable it. 08/12/2015 - 1.1 - Fixed alert "ERROR: Could not establish connection." when clicking on A+ icon when the extension is first installed. Now it tells the user to refresh the page. 08/12/2015 - 1.0 - A+ FontSize Changer created
- (2020-04-11) Lucian Andries: Dude, how many awesome extensions do you have??🙂👍👍 The text resizing and coloring works great on every page, including Google's!💓 Except for special Chrome pages, of course.
- (2018-10-17) Stephen Willis: My vision isn't great so this extension really helps me. One thing though, I didn't change it but somehow the text got changed to black and it took me forever to figure out what was wrong with the web pages, click the reset button in the extension, and re-save the default.
- (2018-10-16) Ann Jones: It's quite good, but won't work on Google Chrome pages - any suggestions?
- (2018-03-31) P Muller: Definitely improves chrome's appearance on my Windows 10 laptop. The new version allows user to customize the type of font, which makes it a perfect extension. Thank you!
- (2018-02-07) Den Boychuk: This is a brilliant and indispensable extension that fixes all those attractive but unreadable web pages which have small, pastel fonts on grey backgrounds.
- (2017-01-07) happilysprouts: Terrific little program. I can now read those webpages that have grey letters. Really happy with it. Thanks
- (2016-05-16) Kazu: 他の拡張機能がまともに動作しないので購入しました。 Lite では画面遷移で元のサイズに戻ってしまいましたが、画面遷移後もサイズが維持されるようになりました。 20% ごとでなく、もっと細かく調整できたら、もっと良いです。 アイコンに表示される倍率の文字が色的にとても読み難いです。 Vivaldi で使ってます。

- (2020-05-27, v:1.3.6) Lucian Andries: Bug, maybe?
Hey again... I'm not doing it on purpose. I reported this issue a while back, but now I'm showing you instead. I recorded it... (ps, the page is zoomed Out) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ewhfIO-B0fufVrkLodYzMvtV1vc9T4NS/view?usp=sharing
- (2020-05-21, v:1.3.5) Melissa: Visited and unvisited
Hello! I wonder if you can ad a color-selection (in pro version) for visited and unvisited links on a webpages? It would be really appreciated if this can be arranged. The sites become much easier to organize if this was possible because all text on a website shows only the same color now. Thanks in advance.
- (2020-05-20, v:1.3.5) Lucian Andries: Dark Mode:
All these websites turning black is good and all. But the extension needs a Dark Mode as well. I woke up with a red eye, and my tv is killing me...😭😭
- (2020-05-20, v:1.3.5) Lucian Andries: Text Color not working on Site Commenting Plugins:
Hey. I just discovered that the extension can not change the text color of Site commenting Plugins, such as Disqus and Facebook. This is a problem. Here, I'll link you 2 sites with both Plugins, to see for yourself: ""https://www6.watchmovie.movie/series/batwoman-season-1-episode-18"", ""https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-holding-the-release-of-gtc-2020-news-off-due-to-coronavirus-outbreak"". I hope there's a fix for this, an easy fix... Thank you!

- (2020-05-15, v:1.3.5) Lucian Andries: Suggestion:
Hey Jeff! I have an idea for the extension. I've encountered a lot o issues along the way, but it's not the extension, it's the sites themselves! The issue I'm talking about it's the Headers and the Footers of web pages. They already have Big text titles, headers and footers, and when we increase the text on the page, the headers and footers increase as well, squishing the Body part of the page...reducing the visible and usable part of a page, by 2/3. And my idea for the extension is, to ignore the headers and footers of pages, just increase the text size Only on the Body part of a page. Or if you want to complicate yourself, add a separate text resizer for both the Header and Footer, as well... This will fix retarded websites, and make them usable. Thank you for your time!
- (2020-04-25, v:1.3.5) Patrick Adams: Free for a Limited Time?
Dear Jeff, In response to COVID-19, might I suggest making the A+ FontSize Changer Pro free to download for a limited time so that you can give during these trying times? I am a person who craves custom colors on pages, and I'd love to use this extension. Thanks! Patrick
- (2020-04-22, v:1.3.4) Lucian Andries: Oof, found 2 more issues...
Hey Jeff. I found 2 more issues with the extension... -This one is weird, but... When I open a website with "resized text", often the extension makes the text size a lot Bigger, than what I set it to. I have to reload the page 1-2 times to make it look right, or reset the text size and set it again. Also, if a website loaded fine the first time, reloading the page or going to another page, does the same issue. I think the "Pro" part of the extension is not working properly, the "memorize settings for each website" part. That or, I don't know. This time, this isn't affected by another extension... -For some reason, the extension replaces "icons" and "button icons" on some webpages, with "squares". And it makes it very confusing, because not all buttons have names... After the last issue, I did the same now, disabling the extensions one by one. Also, it doesn't matter if the site is not "modified", just enabling the extension is enough. Damn it, if I did this earlier, now all fixes would've been in the same update, and not take 2 weeks..... Oh well... Here is a website I use every day, with the specified issue, "www.emag.ro". Thank you for your hard work!
- (2020-04-11, v:1.3.4) Lucian Andries: Suggestion??
Seeing you just like to make great extensions(🤥), may I suggest a new extension?? Don't worry, it's something easy... Maybe...😛 Can you make a Search on Page tool? Something similar to the browser's "find ctrl+f". A simple right click, then click search, a floating box popsup, you write the words in and hit enter. And has 2 buttons, next and previous. But it searches on page, not the internet... It'd be cool if we can "write" the word(s) using the Speech Recognition extension.... 👍👍👍 It would be a more simpler and easier to use tool, than that of the browser's, imo. I can't find such a tool. And using Speech Recognition with custom commands, is too complicated(if it ever works), and would take a longer time I assume? The reason for not using the built in tool, is that it's too far on the screen(I'm using a 50" TV, from my bed), and the text is tooooo small to read(even on the TV)...😞 Make it Pro, and I'll buy this too.🙂
- (2020-04-11, v:1.3.4) Lucian Andries: It's awesome! But...
The text resizing works flawlessly on every page, including Google's! But changing background colors doesn't work on any page... Whatever I do, the text disappears under the background color I chose.😕 If I refresh it works for a second, then derps again... Why?😢 Question: It has 3 Profiles. Does that mean that's the maximum websites it can save settings for? Or it's something completely different? Thank you!
- (2020-02-11, v:1.3.4) Paul Zelmer: Buying pro version
I would like to buy the pro version, but had no credit card. Can I pay with paypal? I would send you my mail address, so you could tell my your paypal address/username. Then I will send the money and after that, you could send my a key.
- (2020-01-30, v:1.3.4) Paul Wieland: Options not available
Options were not available. Originally I installed Pro over Lite, then removed Lite but Options were still not available so I uninstalled Pro. Now I need the key to activate it. Don"t I..? Thanx

Hi! The free version installs fine on Brave, but not the Pro version. Could you please look into this? Thank you for a great extension (purchased pro and happy user)
- (2019-11-13, v:1.3.4) Benjamin Rood: Pro version - selective enable/disable
Hi, I bought the Pro version and it is working fine so far. Only thing that I wish I had was a way to define exclude some things from being overriden. As a developer yourself you will be aware of pages that have 'code blocks' which usually use some variant of the `font-family=monospace` css annotation. Would there be any way of adding functionality to enable/disable font-overriding by the extension, ideally by highlighting some area on the page and then right-clicking and having a contextual menu option to do this? Thanks!

Hi, Using the most recent version of Chrome and the Font Changer Pro. Text that is on a black tab or the banner of a site becomes black unless I go into the extension each time and click the Reset Colors button. Using Profile 1X and will vary the size of the font as needed from the top + and -. Windows 10, plenty of memory, fast desktop etc. Can you recommend a fix? Thanks
- (2018-11-20, v:1.3.4) Melissa: foragers / jumping
Hi Jeff! I have purchased "A + FontSize Changer Pro". When I use this on Facebook, it takes 5 minutes before the page has loaded clearly. The website works fine when the extension is disabled, so I know there is something wrong with this.If I disable this add-on, it only takes seconds until the full page is completed loaded. Even the "free" version does the same thing. However, I removed it because I have the Pro version now. By the way, I like this add-on very much and had hoped that the Pro version worked better. :-( How should I get this add-on not "Jumping" / buffering?
