    I have poor eyesight. The as-shipped font size inside the App is too tiny for me. It is very difficult for me to read.

    That includes both:

    • The fonts used by the App itself
    • The size of fonts I type into the text editor

    Is there a way to increase the font size inside the App?

    In most apps, I need to set the font size to somewhere around 18 to 24.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I will consider such functionality in v.0.39: https://github.com/GetPublii/Publii/issues/950

    looks like this has yet to be added, or is there an option i’m not seeing?

    if there’s not an option, i suspect the app font can be styled using the dev tools, however a tutorial would be appreciated

    looks like font size can be set for the <html> element in dev tools > element, however how can this be saved across sessions? i assume a chrome.css file needs to be written somewhere and loaded by publii on startup, but where?

    @Bob – i’m referring to the font sizes for the entire GUI, less the editor

    increasing the (tiny) size can be done in the dev tools, but how does one make that stick across sessions?

    would be nice if Publii adopted the system defaults

    Making font sizes customizable in the Publii interface in different sections is quite a challenge due to the different screen sizes and complexity of the user interface. Therefore, there are currently no plans to implement this feature.

    i avoided electron based apps for this very reason – that x-platform capability means the app doesn’t look/work native on any OS

    as for font sizes being a challenge due to the different screen sizes, that’s exactly why the option is needed and after quickly playing around with it, the problem seems to be as easy as manipulating the value for a single css selector in electron/chromium…

    html { font-size: N%; }

    this is easily set in dev tools and seems to work across the entire app so, offhand, i don’t see why it would difficult to implement
