Text box shift of different monitors Answered


I now do my Instructables on a wide screen laptop. If I view them on a desktop with a formerly "normal" narrow monitor, the text boxes have shifted their positions and are no longer over the part of the photo where I placed them. I do not know if I should add a cautionary note to the body of my Instructable, or assume everyone is using a wide screen monitor these days, or assume people will figure out what I intended. Does anyone have any wisdom on this? Thank you.

(If this has been covered before, please excuse me.)

Something similar has been happening to me for weeks--

If you click on a photo in any instructable gallery strip (step-by-step, photo), the image notes aren't in the correct place (or the correct size) until you click the image a second time...

Firefox 4.0.1, Windoz 7.

I did two instructables the last weekend, and I noted that some image notes aren't in the place and size as I put them. Same notebook (the only), hence same monitor without change in settings. In my case the differences are irrelevant.

When I edited an instructable to correct it, the image notes are as I put them.

I just looked at a particular photo with text boxes on another. It also has a narrow, older monitor. The boxes are as they should be on it. Perhaps it is not a problem caused by the monitor. But, two different browsers are involved. I usually do my Instructables through Google Chrome, at least in recent months. The text boxes were out of place on the Firefox browser.
