Text size within the programme panels.

Recommended Posts

Very happy with changes in V2, however, is it possible to enlarge the text within the programme? I know I can increase text size on the PC or even change screen resolution but this does not change the text inside the programme panels. Please see images below. I find the readability of the text too small and to me it is much smaller than V1. Also, the 'Large' icon in the layers panel also seems smaller than that in V1.





And also is there a way of increasing size in the tools panel??


I have three 27" monitors over which I spread the panels but this small text size is really a pain.

Other than adjusting the Windows Display Scaling setting, there is no way to change the size of those items for the Affinity apps on Windows, in either V1 or V2.

Although this won't resolve your issue if the text is too small, one of the differences between V1 and V2 is that the text is darker (greyer), which doesn't help with readability.

Increasing the 'Text Contrast' and the 'UI Brightness' in settings may help a bit.  However, even with the text contrast slider all the way to the right, it will still not be as clear as Affinity V1.
