  1. Yes, I know it can be confusing to some readers. There are several things that can throw them off, and that is why it is so crucial that we study deeply, comparing Scripture with Scripture. The more I study, the more I see things by writers about Scripture that can raise red flags, even when most of what they write is true. The human mind is just not capable of perfection.

    1. Phoebe, do you still have a problem with your phone display? Jill thinks she’s fixed it, but we can’t know for sure unless you tell us.

    2. I just left a message about it on your new post on the subject. The display fills the whole screen, and it’s beautiful, but as the replies get into narrower and narrower columns (because of the necessary indents), they still wind up with fewer and fewer words per line. But I do like the new typeface and letter spacing very much, so I’ve suggested a workaround for people like Unknowable and me who leave reeeeeally long replies. (Spoiler alert: use shorter replies or start a new comment and indicate what we’re replying to.) 🙂

    3. Let me pass this on to Jill and see if she can fix it.
      A lot of readers enjoy your long comments, and UK’s, and I wouldn’t want to do without them.
      Would it work if you just wrote everything into one long paragraph?

    4. No, the problem is with the width of the column containing the reply, and when the column gets too narrow, fewer words can fit on each line. So no matter how long or short the paragraph is, the column remains its same skinny self, with very few words on each line.

      And the fix can’t be to make the indents smaller, because that happened in one of the earliest drafts of the theme, and it was difficult to tell what was an original comment and what was a reply. We need the indents, but they do make the paragraphs narrower. Everything is a tradeoff.
