    I.T developers and Eyesight -- another Gripe --TOO SMALL TEXT


    Hi there

    Perennial gripe - but I really think anybody who wants to be an I.T developer should be FORCED to wear glasses that inhibits their eye sight a little so the rest of us can finally get screens we can actually READ easily.

    Don't people at Ms ever test this stuff.

    If reading the SAVE AS bit at the bottom of my screenshot is clear then good luck to you -- IE here seems to have the web pages OK but the little pop up at the bottom is HIDEOUSLY small.

    C'mon guys --we aren't all 15 years old again on our computers. I don't have too bad eyesight but this is getting almost impossible to read again.

    Cheers

    I'm with you, jimbo.

    The first thing I do with any installation is jack up the overall display dpi, and then a few individual elements on top of that. Then I can operate relatively comfortably. But some things they make so tiny, it's quite aggravating...

    I agree completely!

    I also detest web pages and software that uses light gray type. I'd like to poke the designers in the eye with a rusty nail!
