    [Description: Illustrations of the steps for creating a new mobile skin on the Archive of Our Own.]

    Too big? Too small? Whatever the case, if AO3's mobile font size is getting you down, here's how you can change it with the Archive’s skin system and a little CSS.

    1. Log in. If you don’t have an Archive of Our Own account, you can request an invitation.
    2. From the “Hi, user!” menu, choose “My Dashboard.”
    3. From your dashboard, choose “Skins.”
    4. On the My Site Skins page, choose “Create Site Skin.”
    5. Name your skin using the “Title” field. Skin names must be unique.
    6. In the CSS field, enter #outer { font-size: 12px; } (You can use any size you want. It is currently set to 14px and was previously set to 12px.)
    7. Select the Advanced section’s “Show” option.
    8. In the Conditions section, for Media, select “only screen and (max-width: 640px).” Depending on your device, you may also need to select “handheld.”
    9. Select “Submit” to save your skin.
    10. Select “Use” to apply your skin.
