    --->  Only thing I really miss now that you are giving us daily e-mails for new content is the link at the end of each article to access the next article without having to go back to the list of new articles.  Or am I missing something?

    You are missing something. The link is still there.

    When you look at the daily email, click on the title of any article that interests you. That title is a link. When you click on the title, you will be taken directly to the article.

    Looks great!  However, I miss the weekly newsletter.  Perhaps I'm not seeing the concise list of articles as they used to be published.  I don't have time to read daily blurbs.

    Thanks,

    ---> However, I miss the weekly newsletter. 

    The weekly newsletter is being sent to thousands of people, usually on Monday afternoons (Eastern US time zone). It is sent to all registered users of this web site, both to the (free) Standard Edition members and to the (paid) Plus Edition members.

    If you would like to receive the free weekly email messages, click on SUBSCRIBE on most any web page on this site or go to https://eogn.com/page-18077

    Again, this works at no charge to you if you sign up for the (free) Standard Edition membership.

    Gosh, This is actually readable. Very nice. Ancestral Quest redid their thing to make it so tiny its nearly unreadable. 

    Cheers,  jon

    I am not familiar with the details of Ancestral Quest but I will suggest that the following works on MOST apps and websites, although not on all. Try it to see of it works:

    1. To INCREASE the font size: Hold down the Control Key (Macintosh users should hold down the Command Key) and then press the Plus Key (+). You might have to press the Plus Key 2 or 3 or more times to obtain  the size you want.

    2. To DECREASE the font size: Hold down the Control Key (Macintosh users should hold down the Command Key) and then press the Minus Key (-). You might have to press the Minus Key 2 or 3 or more times to obtain  the size you want.

    Just found you again. I wondered where you had gotten off to/ I'll let you know after a bit of looking around.

    I'm sure that you have done a lot of work on this change but I prefer the old newsletter.  The print was better and it was easier to read.  It was also easier to navigate around the newsletter.

    Like all web sites, the font size on this website is under YOUR control at all times.

    The following works on MOST web browsers, although not on all. Try it to see of it works when using any web browser:

    1. To INCREASE the font size: Hold down the Control Key (Macintosh users should hold down the Command Key) and then press the Plus Key (+). You might have to press the Plus Key 2 or 3 or more times to obtain  the size you want.

    2. To DECREASE the font size: Hold down the Control Key (Macintosh users should hold down the Command Key) and then press the Minus Key (-). You might have to press the Minus Key 2 or 3 or more times to obtain  the size you want.

    That is the only method I know of to display any web page on very large or very small screen sizes and have them readable for all sizes of screens.,

    I like the look of the newsletter, but organization escapes me.  I can never find what I think are all the articles for the week like I used to find on the previous version.  There was an article mentioned in the e-mail notice that I got today, but I cannot find it in either the Plus articles or the free list of articles.  I have very little time to devote to searching for things (if the book doesn't have an index, it will be the last one I look at - as you have noted).  I am sure the article I want to read is somewhere and probably if I looked at the search box I could find it, but then I would have to remember the title or copy/paste it into the search box.  So rather than do any of that I just skip it.  In the previous iteration of the newsletter I could scroll down and find the article easily.  Too many compartments in the new one - they hide what I want to find.
