The Font!
« on: September 04, 2014, 04:09:48 PM »
So this is more a general question than an actual problem, but...

The font on the site looks different to me now than it did last time I logged on. Anyone notice it too? I like it, I find it easier to read and prettier, but no one I've asked so far seems to have noticed it and I'm wondering if I'm going crazy haha.

I've been wondering the same thing! I like this new font as well, but it was jarring to notice the change.

"Amelita's Favorite Person Right Now" has a nice ring to it  8-)

At first I thought I must have just hit a button on my keyboard that made the font size smaller, but to my eyes it really does look like the font has changed to something new. Wasn't the old one Verdana? Slight change but no complaints from me. I do like it.

This one's characters have a tiny bit more space between them. That's all I can say for sure lol.

It appears to be the same.  The second quote is my retyping of the line above.

I'm pretty sure it hasn't changed, as I've made this exact same comparison before, with the same results (at least with Windows7 and IE10)

The normal font in the middle appears to be like 9 1/2 pt, a relatively stingy font for those of us who don't have 25 year old eyes.  And that's the same way it appeared a year ago when I tried this.

See, all of those look new to me, just different sized lol.

Okay, I found this here:



And for comparison, just now:



Ignore the difference in size, I don't know if I zoomed in to snap the first one back then. But, look at the curves of the characters and the spacing between them.

This is interesting, because I what I see at the same place on my page looks exactly like what you saw on February 7 ... which is why I'm not seeing what you are seeing with post type.  Did you recently switch computers, or update operating systems?

I look back to a former screen capture and they look exactly the same to me.  So I'm not sure why yours are looking different.

Sorry, maybe someone else has some insight

The font looks different to me, but who knows.  I can't -tell- what the difference is, just that it's different.  It looks like it may have been downsized in point to me, because I had to take my requests in my O/O and bump them up a notch for me to see them, where the day before it had been fine.  (i.e., My 8pt font yesterday looked like 8.  Today, it looked like 6.5pt.  I had to bump it to 10 so I could read it.)

Um - This might be nothing, but I know that I've occasionally reduced my font size by accident.  Maybe check a Ctrl+0 to ensure you haven't zoomed out by accident?

Well normal font size was too small for my eyes, and still is (so I may not be able to discriminate too small from way too small), :o  which is why I work at 150% magnification on site.  ;)

Also, if you inadvertently hold down the Ctrl button and move your mouse wheel you can increase or decrease the font size on your screen without realizing it.  I'm not seeing any difference though on my laptop.

I triple checked that the zoom was at 100%.

Looking at the site on my phone now and it looks like what I'm used to.
Gonna open up the lappy to see if it still looks different on there.


...still looks different on the laptop.


As for what exactly is different: The characters have more space between them and they are wider in relation to height than what most of you all are looking at. If you look at my pics up there you can also see in the e's how the horizontal line in it is more in the middle of the character in the font I see now, and a little above the middle of the character in the font you are looking at.



But again, this is not really a problem, just something I'm wondering about since it definitely did change for me and I sort of thought I was going crazy when no one else seemed to have it happen too. Now that a couple of others mention seeing the difference I'm a bit calmer :P
