Log entry text box is too small for older eyes

Recommended Posts

For the love of god, make the text in the log entry box big enough for me to read what I'm typing.  Tiny gray-on-white is fine for millenials, but we senior citizens CANNOT READ IT.

 

This field was great a few years ago -- black-on-white at a decent size -- but some young whipper-snapper of a UX designer messed with it.

Use Google with magic words "Make the font even bigger" and select your own device from the list.

Ctrl + mouse wheel zooms in or out.
 In most cases Ctrl + + and Ctrl + - also works.

 

The user's ability to override a web site's microfonts is a workaround, not a solution. If the user needs to override a web site's microfonts, then the web site has screwed up.

You should notice that the font in the sample image is smaller than normally as in my reference image here. It is possible that the user has wrong setup in the device or accidentally shrinked the size of log form. There is also setting for stronger contrast if the grey text is not easy to read.

Agreed.  The font on my screen (and I checked I am at zoom level 100%) is the same size as above.  Suspect the OP has accidentally set themselves at about zoom level 66% (at least for me this zoom level gives a font size about the same as in the OP post).

You can go back to it.  There's an opt-out option.

 

(...unless you're using field notes or drafts or whatever they're called now, then you're hooped.)

Might be that you're accidentally downsized the browser window yourself.

When in the log window, hit: Ctrl-0 (ie: zero) and all should be fine again.
