    Hi John,

     

    I use Chrome on Linux. Up until recently the font used was always sans-serif then it suddenly changed. It's not a font size change, the whole font changed as well as size. That's why I thought it was the site. I just tried Chrome on Windows and it looks normal there. I'm not sure what happened, but it does look like a local issue. 

    I have to go out now but will look at it properly when I get back and post a screenshot.

    Thanks,

    Tom.

    Hi Tom - we haven't made any changes to our fonts, we're using the same fonts we launched the site with in 2014. I'm wondering if it's something to do with the ease of access display settings on your computer - have a look at the Ease of Access section under your Windows settings for anything that might increase the size of text.

    Hi,

    The site semi-recently started using the Oswald font (or it was always there and just suddenly started 'working' on my machine). I am finding this deeply frustrating.

    Firstly, the size is different to the old sans-serif font and as such has screwed up some UI elements. Of particular note are the buttons for Auto Plot when editing a route. These now read "Off", "By", "On", "By" as the actually important word is cut off.

    The ETA and Km columns in the directions list now overflows into their respective adjacent column.

    Secondly, I find it much harder to read than sans-serif. I'm not sure how to quantify this but it is extremely frustrating and goes beyond just disliking the aesthetic. I think the easiest way to explain it is that everything used to be readable at a glance but now I am finding I have to concentrate to figure out what they say.

    Please change the font back.

    Thanks.
