Font Size


It looks like it hasn't been mentioned in a while, but the font size for both the windows app and the Outlook plugin needs to be adjustable. It doesn't seem to respond to the font scaling in Windows 8.1, and on a high res screen (2600x1440) it's too WAY small to use for me. I simply can't use Todoist on my laptop.

Also, to be clear, I'm not looking for a native Windows 8.1 app. I use desktop mode.

We are aware and we hope to fix/improve this at some point, but at this time I can not give any kind of ETA as to when.

I got the same issues. Font size is way too small on outlook and desktop version of windows.

Same problem suddenly appeared here yesterday. However, the problem is also on this forum, making it very hard to read.

That looks like a totally different font. Do you have any extension in your browser relating to font/font management? Have you tried relaunching it? Did it help?

Spent 4 hours yesterday trying to fix the font problem. But no luck. Its very hard to read todoist panel. The problem is related to Chrome browser and is only on this particular installation. Other computers are not affected. Have tried re-isntalling everything, chrome, todoist, fonts - even rolled back windows. No luck.

Unfortunately, this is something that we can't replicate so it's would be difficult to fix it on our end. :-(

One user did experience it but it was due to either a font he installed or a system font that he removed. Did you do anything similar recently?

I also wanted to echo the comments mentioned here. I would prefer to use the Todoist Windows App rather than having to use the browser version, but the Windows App's font is too tiny in Windows 8.1. Thank you for working on a solution to this!

Ditto - I love the concept of ToDoist, but the lack of adjustable fonts makes it almost unusable in Outlook or Windows 8.1 for high def screens. You folks thought of a lot of things, but how did you not see the need for adjustable font sizes?

Adjustable font sizes and types (I'd prefer Arial, believe it or not) would be fantastic. :-)

I want to add my 2 cents to this conversation. I'm in my early 70s and unfortunately my aging eyes don't work as well as they used to. It would certainly be helpful if the fonts in the Windows and Outlook apps were larger or adjustable. Frequently, I'm compelled to revert to the browser version to give my eyes a break. This isn't always convenience, since it doesn't allow me to access emails that have been added as tasks.

I would like to echo these thoughts - I have poor eyesight and I need to put my face too close to the screen, when using Windows 7.

Almost unusable on MS Surface. Please add an ability to change the font size.
