The pages don't fit on my computer screen.

If you have to scroll horizontally to see the site, your screen resolution may be too low and you should check your screen resolution settings.

The WriteSite is designed to be best viewed at 1280 x 1024 screen resolution.


  • Click on the Start button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
  • Choose Control Panel.
  • Choose Display, then Settings.

You may be able to increase the resolution by sliding the pointer to the right.


  • Go to the apple symbol in the left-hand corner of the top menu bar.
  • Choose System Preferences.
  • Choose Displays, then highlight the resolution that you would like to use.
