I think the highlighting feature was recently changed and now I get a pop-up box that the font is so small my eyes can barely read the different options/choices. The previous menu was easy to read. Is there a way to increase the font size in tne pop-up box so I can see the various choices to highlight in. Thank you for your assistance with this.

if there is not a way to increase the font, is there a way I can revert back to the previous highlighting menu ?

Yes, I think I can send a screenshot, but I don’t know where to look to see which Mobile App I’m using.

Sorry, Alabama 24 it’s been too long since I posted a screenshot & I don’t remember the steps to insert it in the post. (I have the screenshot taken in my photos App, but how to insert it in the post I don’t remember the How to Steps.)

Thanks for the screenshot to clarify. 

Unfortunately for you, this is the new menu and there is not a way to change it.

Tell me it isn’t so!

This is awful. Why? Why? Why? It was so easy to see the choices before.

thanks for info alabama24

Last night I compared my 'old' Logos (a few months ago) to Bev's. Looked the same. Then I went back to late last year. Looks like for whatever reason, they made it harder to read (font size),

Yes, that’s what mine looked like previously. I always do the App Updates, but this is the first time it has changed the highlighting feature. The new font is terribly small—can barely see what to Touch especially when using Editing Note. It must be even smaller on a regular iPad (I have the 12.9" iPad Pro)

Thank you Denise.

Is it following the custom font-sizes set in iOS (in Settings under General -> DIsplay & Brightness -> Text Size)?

If you were seeing what Denise showed in her screenshot, that can't be quite true. The change as shown happened well more than a year ago!

Some thoughts:

  • I like the new system generally better than the old, but...
  • It is smaller than the old way, and...
  • It isn't as easy to tell which style you are using.

alabama24, honestly this week has been the first time the highlighting changed. Could this mean there is some bug in my iPad? My email hasn’t been working properly for awhile either.

If you are positive that your app looked like what Denise showed, than it has been at least a year since your app was updated. What does that mean?

Maybe, but...

Is it possible you were in Airplane mode?

I found the release notes page. The last version of the old app was released in October 2018 (so about a year).

I update my Apps every day & sometimes twice a day if needed. 

No, not in Airplane mode. Its like the emails are bogged down & can’t download, but this isn’t all the time—it occurs at different times during the day or evening. Now when it happens then I use my iPhone 7+ to check my emails & then the emails download lickety-split..using Wi-Fi on each device.

Arguing about how long ago the font size in the pop up was changed is a useless sidetrack.

Can we not just all agree that the new font size is too small and ask Logos to boost it a bit. I agree that this is a problem. I haven';t brought it up becaue i have poor eyesight and figured it was just too small for me, but it seems even alabama24 agrees the size is too small. This should be an easy tweak for Logos..

On the contrary! As someone trying to assist the user, I don't know if something has changed with her system, if there is a bug, or if she really did update very recently from a 6.x to an 8.x build!

I sent an email to the lead developer.

Actually I don't, but I am sensitive to this issue. I have GREAT eyesight (just proved by the optometrist!), but about five years ago I had an employer that required me to use a windows device. The menu text on the screen gave me headaches!

Thank you John, the font is definitely too small and an extreme decrease in size from previous version.

Although it has been quite awhile ago alabama24 has helped me with a different problem so I understand the why of his detail questioning.

I do hope this is a quick fix and Logos will attend to it right away.

Well, hope is always the best in humanity. James (NT) said it best. But Logos tends to go for 'pretty'. In this case, let the example images speak, and reduce the text to squint-size. Eliminate the text if at all possible.

It makes for high training costs (corporate) and reluctant customers (apps).

But we can hope!

Denise. Why are you so cynical? I’m sure Faithlife haven’t deliberately reduced the size of the font to make more training necessary. it surprises me that you use the software as you are always so negative about it.

Bev. I have no idea what is causing your font size to be so small but I am on the latest beta on an iPad and do not have that problem. See screen below.
