Itty Bitty Font

  • 1675

Why has Duo changed the font to an itty bitty size in the drop down menu for selecting correct choices? I cannot read this & my struggle with it is making think I must drop my program which I don't want to do. Having a font so tiny is absolutely ridiculous! There is lots of white space so its not for lack of it. Put back the font size back to its original size please!!!!

As an (unofficial) web designer, padding is very important to make your font not seem cramped. There are add-ons/extensions you can get for your browser that allow you to add custom CSS (cascading style sheets, which will let you put the font the size you want it).

OK, I figured it out. Install the custom CSS extension on your browser. For duolingo.com, enter:

select[id^="options_"] {font-size: 50px;}

Please don't misunderstand me, I agree totally with you! =)

you can install a browser extension that will allow you to change the font to whatever you like (for example I use the Segoe Print font)
