I'd like to know how to join the discussion?

I have been running the latest version of Jitsi for Windows on my Win7
Ultimate system.
There are several problems that seem to be common to myself and a few of my
friends who are also using Windows. How and where do I begin describing
what appears to be bugs in the software?

For example: None of us (four users total) have been able to get the fonts
adjustment to work AT ALL. Any effort to change the font size or type of
font results in absolutely no change in font size or choice but (on the
receiving end) the html language corresponding to the font change suddenly
appears in the text window of the recipient obscuring the message. I mean
the message text can be found dead center in the middle of the html language
but it is otherwise not changed in either font type, font size, color etc.

Using Jitsi under these conditions, without the capacity to enlarge the
default font size makes reading text exceedingly difficult due to its small
size.

I´m not a Jitsi developer just another user trying to help, and I´m
shooting in the dark here, as I don´t know the particulars about your
system other than what you said (Win7).

Are you sure you have the latest Java version installed?. It should be 7.02.

Get it from here:

32-bit version
http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u2-b13/jdk-7u2-windows-i586.exe

64-bit version:
http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u2-b13/jdk-7u2-windows-x64.exe

Choose the one that matches your version of Win7 (32-bit or 64-bit)

Hi Mercy,

Thanks for you report!

There were some other similar reports recently, so I created the following issue: http://java.net/jira/browse/JITSI-1004.

Best regards,
Yana

Thank you for the suggestion Fernando. It would be helpful to me if you would explain what this has to do with controlling font size?

The font size problem exists with at least four Windows based systems that I know of - three of them are running versions of Win7 and one is running Vista. The font size/color change will appear on the screen of the person who has made the change but it does not show as anything but html code with the text in the middle for any of the recipients. They ALL have this problem both sending and receiving.

I have downloaded and installed the current version of Java as you suggested but have no idea as to how it's supposed to help?

Thanks again for trying.

Mercy

I just thought that perhaps this was due to some bug in the Java runtime.
You know, it´s not the first time Java had issues with fonts on the
different OSs, and those bugs were fixed.

But since you seem too impatient and demand explanations to those
trying to help, I´ll refrain for further attempts to help you.

Maybe the Jitsi developers will chime in with additional suggestions,
or perhaps you found a bug in the Jitsi code. In any case, good luck!.

Fernando,

I am so sorry if my request for more information seemed impatient or demanding to you. I really am just learning here and have no basic understanding of how Java works. I meant no disrespect. Please accept my apology. I know you were simply trying to help.
