Please incorporate Text-size options as well !

  • Hello !

    Till Win XP, we had clear-cut, well-specified & remarkable options to set Text-Size to those to Normal, Large, Extra-Large.

    Later variants of Windows done away with this privilege & started offering Display customizations in % of Magnification for everything visible on screen !

    High monitor resolutions & a NO provision to increase Text-size exclusively have left many High & Dry with Win 7 & Win 10.

    Therefore, please envisage purely Text-size customizations within the f.lux interface for the Modern variants of Windows !

    Win XP generation are made to go through Short-sightedness experience on account of tiny Text sizes & meek-weak rendering of Fonts on Screen !

    Help "empower" via Text-size customizations through f.lux interface.

    Thank you.

  • I find it to be extremely easy to set text size in Windows 7. I don't have Windows 10, but in Windows 7 all you have to do is click "'Set custom text size (DPI)". If you want Windows XP style scaling, then you just enable it.

    If that's not good enough, then go here: Personalization > Window Color and Appearance > and click "Advanced appearance settings...". You can change the font size (and font face) of any text you want.

    I really don't think it would make sense to have such a feature in f.lux. Not only that, but it might not be as easy as you think to get f.lux to do it without causing problems (if it's even possible).

  • The new version (v4) draws at the DPI of the screen, which might help you. The old version can be too small on newer screens.

    I think he's asking for you to put options in f.lux to change the text size settings for the entire OS. I don't think he's only asking for changes to the f.lux window.

  • @TwoCables Hello! Please refer to the following pictorial description & help validate your previous reply0_1505886076329_upload-2f5126ee-264c-4392-a428-3b6e4ad4319d

    Similarly, setting a "Custom DPI" within Win 7 also make many of the items unfit at times!
    High-resolution Screens coupled with Text-size paralysis are making many men Blind & making others suffer with Glaucoma & Cataract.

    Meek & Weak Text rendering within Win 7 & Win 10 is akin to only >>> "Grey Pencil scribbles" getting jotted down for as if School notes!

    That's why well-defined options of - Normal, Large & Extra-large are required for Text-size you see..!

    f.lux must come to the rescue..!

  • Are you having trouble reading everything on the screen, or just within f.lux?

    I assume 200% scaling or something like that doesn't help, since you've found the setting?

  • @herf In general ! I haven't tried f.lux as of yet! Please include Text-size customizations within f.lux interface so that one could tinker with Font-settings for entire Win OS. How do you make your Desktop items appear in Bold text size? Pl reveal ?
