  1. The text message size on my Android 9 was mid-size, the same as the rest of the text on my device, but suddenly it became gigantic. The other text remained the same. I have no idea why this happened. I didn’t change it; at least, not on purpose. It does do down to a smaller size (though still much too large) if I adjust the fonts on my device to their smallest size. However, then, the other text is too tiny to read. (80-year-old eyes are funny that way). So, I need help getting things back where they were, with all text, including text messages, at the same size. I can’t find a way to adjust text on only my message app. I would be grateful if someone can help me.
