I am testing a web-based inquisit task. I found that it runs flawlessly on a PC. But when I launch the same task on a mac (using either Safari or FireFox), the font size on the instruction page and the main task gets much smaller.
/ prevlabel = ("Press B to go back")
/ nextlabel = ("Press the spacebar to continue")
/ prevkey = (48)
/ nextkey = (" ")
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 16pt, false, false, false, false, 5)
/ screencolor = (0, 0, 0)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 15pt, True)
/ posttrialpause = 750
I wonder if these tags work differently on a mac. On a mac, the real font size looks as small as 9 or 10.
Please help me figure out what the problem is here.
Thanks so much for your quick help as always.
This is a known issue and will be addressed in a future release. For the time being, try using percentage points for font sizes instead of point values.

Also don't forget that the screen resolution plays an important role. 12pt on a 1024x768 px 17'' monitor will not look the same as 12pt on a 1920x1080 15'' laptop screen.
