    Just a thought about the default font on the new software.

    I am dyslexic and find fonts with serifs harder to read.

    My favourite font is tahoma - what is yours?

    I love the new site and the clarity and ease of use - we have 'like' buttons too - yay!!

    :)

    I like Arial.

    Agree that a serif-free font as the default would be good.

    The like buttons are great aren't they! I like tahoma too. If members want a less squiggly font I am happy to change. Arial is also quite easy on the eye, probably easier to read on a mobile too. :)

    My favourite is Verdana, I agree serif- free would be good.

    Arial has always been my font-of-choice (no serifs).

    I think maybe verdana has a slightly softer look which is nice

    I'm totally lazy and usually accept what the default happens to be :rolleyes:. On colour I'm finding the white on the paler blue on the tool bar tabs a little hard to read, but that could just be my old tired eyes

    I would put a vote in for Verdana. They are all good clear fonts.

    Having fun exploring:)

    Verdana or Arial are fine with me :D

    On another note... Can anyone else not see peoples signatures? (I'm on my phone - if that makes a difference)

    Try Personal Details>Settings>Preferences
    and make sure "show people's signatures with their messages" is ticked

    Can see signatures using my tablet. Not tried logging on through my phone yet. Watch this space

    Oh just tried on my android phone @Emily and I don't have signatures....hadn't noticed that.
    On the plus side, it saves on space and keeps things compact.
