Font problems - are they going to be resolved soon? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I switch to TechNet or articles and then try to go back to forums, the font changes to a very small hard to read. I'd like to have the same font as in MSDN...

    Thanks in advance.

  • The issue here around consistency is in deciding whether we are consistent with cross brand forum's instances OR the rest of technet. The fonts are inherited from 'brand' css, so the fonts are consistent with what 'technet' site expects. I understand the request to bail on that consistency and instead tie it to the app instead of the brand. I'll take that up with the folks that help make these decisions. Thanks for the input.

    It's the same font style, but just a smaller size?

  • No, I believe it's also a different font. But after reading in MSDN, switching to TechNet is painful for my eyes.

  • Why a different size (and font) has been chosen I have no idea. But note that you can change the zoom in your web browser.

  • Yes, I know, I have been doing that yesterday. But still it felt weird.

    I agree. We do appreciate consistency. :-)
