Font Size Adjustment
No votes left
As simple as it sounds. The default text size can be a tad small at times, so it would be useful to have an option to adjust it in Settings.

One of our Core Customer Values (https://www.amplenote.com/blog/core_values_robust_export_fast_cancellation_always_listening) is to ensure customers can easily export their documents, so we wouldn't want the size of the text within a particular note.
In terms of global resizing, I believe both macOS and Windows have a hotkey to enlarge text. On macOS it is Cmd-+ in most browsers. That might help?
How about in the mobile app? It would be nice if you could adjust the font size.
@Sik, please do consider submitting another request for text size tweaking, as an UI option (since Bill already explained that we are not currently considering this as an editor optoin).
This is imperative. It should be a given, not a feature request as it excludes many older people from using your app. Please check out:
@Yaz, please note that on the web Amplenote app you can simply use Ctrl + to enlarge the text. On mobile, you can tweak the system settings to make text larger and that will reflect in the Amplenote app.
EN has a font size (point) selection and they can export notes. A "core value" is customer should easily export their text.
Wouldn't a "Higher" core value be EASE of Use"?
At my age a "one size fits all" small text is not so customer friendly.
I agree with the need to be able to increase the font size in the desktop (Mac) app. It is way too small for those of us over the age of 50.
I understand I can use the increase font size on the browser but I would like to be able to do this on the desktop app also.
+1 for me.
I can't read my notes. I'd like to make the text bigger without increasing the size of the ui.
The ability to add Custom CSS (like you can in Dynalist for instance) would solve this issue. But I bet that would be harder to implement.
I am looking at AmpleNote again. The font is so tiny on Mac desktop that it's unusable for me. I can use the web app (with Cmd +), but then I can't work offline. Surely there is some way to allow a larger font. Probably a deal breaker. 😟
Hey Tracy. We don't actually have a Desktop app (yet). The App Store app is just a port of the mobile one. Please note that the web app will work offline once all note are downloaded (which happens automatically the first time you log in).
The font size of text on Desktop app (MacOS) is VERY SMALL (compare to text displays on other apps). I think it's a very serious problem. With me, it's a cons to decide buying Amplenote.
Wish you fix it soon.
@Minh - please note that we don't actually have a Desktop app yet. The macOS app is just a port of the mobile one (and we don't directly support it). To increase font size on Mac, you can use the web app inside your browser and use Cmd-+ to change font size.
