We Deceanglii sat around here minding our own business and worshipping the River Dee (Long May Her Waters Flow), when Tacitus' lot came and built a fortress on it and started boasting about invading Hibernia. Then they buggered off up North to do a bit of Pict Palaver.
Slow down, we said. Stop rushing about. Have some cheese. Oh and you may want to put a bit more mortar in those walls -- we'll want to walk round them one day.
What have they ever done for us?

The fact is, you British type people are a source of constant fascination to us Americans.

Tacitus wrote:Aye them down London now speak of a mighty awakening as Britannia loses her chains, throws off the yoke of European influence and once again faces the world. Indeed they speak of little else but to question what those Romans, and others of the European persuasion ever did for us. Let us be free they cry, that we may recreate the noble empire that surpassed even that of my illustrious ancestors.
They promise wealth and riches will flow freely even unto the poorest of the land.
Twas ever thus. As I write in my Annals, (copies available in many good charity shops) the delusions of our leaders are often a wonder to behold.

At my age (probably not the oldest user of this forum) my eyes have a very hard time reading the material, so PLEASE MAKE THE FONT BLACK and/or BOLD.

The only problem I have is the synopsis in the inspector is really tiny on this iMac 5K.
I’d make the argument that all the text on the screen should have a percentage adjust meant like the main editor to adjust it for aging eyes.
Whilst I agree with much of what has been said regarding the new flatter appearance, given the apparent impunity with which the trolls seem to be able to post spam, I suspect the new look is the least of the mods problems….

It has been possible to modify the index card look since version 1, though. No need to use the defaults if you don’t like them! I’d go through all of the Appearance pane settings in the “Fonts” tab if you haven’t done so. There are many areas of the UI that can be magnified through the use of custom fonts.
