HI Yasir,

There are no options to change the font size, though it should adjust to your resolution settings and any zoom settings you may have.

Hi Brendon,

I love and use ToDoIst across a couple platforms. I just purchased a Surface Pro 3. I am trying to use the windows program as an app... but the text really is too small for a touch screen. I don't think it is an option to change the screen resolution given the value of the HD screen. If I am on the internet then I can increase the browser text size. Any opportunity to release something in the windows store?

It may happen but at this time there are no concrete plans.

Improved text and editing has been a long time feature request, especially in the notes field. I too believe that this a sore subject with most users. I would have to hope that this would be high on the list of feature improvements. If it's not, mercy mercy!! :'-(

Has there been any update to adjusting the app to run on PPI / high resolution tablet screens inside of Windows 8?

I like the app - but am tired of waiting for this fix. Switching to something I can actually read on my screen if this isn't fixed now.

Hello Brian,

We're very sorry for the delays, we'll definitely implement this, though unfortunately we don't have an estimate when it will be released exactly.

Found this thread five minutes after installing todoist on windows and osx.

Windows version text is way too large.
OSX widget has a maximum window size that is too large; appears to be a fluid wrapped web-app.

Disappointed that more effort has not been put into size optimization.

So, I'm uninstalling both and won't be switching to todoist.

It's been over six months since this issue was reported and no updates. I'll be switching soon if this isn't fixed.

Problem is; where do you go? I too have looked around but I can't duplicate what I am doing in Todoist in other programs, at least not for $30 a year. I did switch from Windows to Google and life is much better. I know that's not an option for most. I also found that touch screens and Todoist don't play well together, so I stay with the browser version.
Dottotech has a webinar coming up next week reviewing many of the todo's apps, might be worth a look. Might be a good idea if the folks at Todoist watched as well.
