"Why did you change the font?"

 

Stupid question, but has the font changed? It's now Roboto.  Wasn't it Roboto before?

And the moral of the story is, if it aint broke........break it.😠

You think the staff have any input??   Like pretty well every software "upgrade" (not just TV) it makes things less easy. I now have two clicks to edit a post rather than the original one.

My eyes are struggling reading forum posts now , compared to before. I am on a WIndows laptop.   You have changed the font. Is there any way I can make the posts bold ?   Bold text.  Why do we

No, I think it was Work Sans. I changed it to Arial in my browser. I can live with Roboto, however.

Roboto is apparently a "web standard".

 

Our software house has started using it for their user interfaces. It's awfully difficult to read at distance.

I think the site looks better, but the font size is way too small. Agreed. 

Use a browser extension to handle the font.

 

On Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/theme-font-size-changer/

On Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/font-changer-plus/ameggholdkgkdepolbiaekmhjiaiiccg?hl=en

 

I use Waterfox Classic, so the older extension No Small Text works brilliantly.

I doubt that.  Work Sans rings absolutely no bells for me, and I did previously report some CSS issues with the site relating to fonts.

He's done a very poor job of ruining it. You should make a comeback.

I must admit I've been having a sly peep and it does appear more equitable now. I'll think about taking your advice. Maybe a few more wins. 555

Haven't tried it on a mobile phone, but so far on a computer, the upgrade seems to be an improvement on the previous style.

Those of you on computers can ctrl + to make everything bigger

 

I am aware of that but it doesn't change the font.   What is the name of this font anyway?  Silly font?

OK there is an extension called Font Changer Plus for Brave and Chrome browsers. 
Maybe that will sort out the problem ?

Yes it worked!!
