        Absolutely need to be able to adjust font sizes. For PC users, my own "fix" is to hit Ctrl + until it is the right size for me. (Not sure if this only works on IE, but anyway...for what it's worth.)

        I have moved on to www.inoreader.com. Its superior to netvibes and the devs respond with the community quickly. Inoreader reminds me of netvibes back in 2005 when it was better than igoogle. The tables have turned. netvibes has jimped the shark. .

        For me the current font is essentially unusable on ipad. An option to select a larger font is a requirement to keep using the reader. Thanks

        It's a must. I bought a new apple thunderbird monitor. Netvibes looks awful. Let's change the fonts!!!

        I'm on the other end where I hate small font size. The best option is to give the user an option to change the font size to their liking. If you can customize other things like themes why the limitation on fonts size?

        The font size increase we introduced a couple of days ago was not entirely satisfactory so we decided to roll back the change. We’re still working on a solution that would better meet everybody's expectations.

        New font settings are in; settings, themes, customize, advanced.
        LOL
        j/k
        This is where the settings should be, however for some reason Netvibes just likes to say requests are 'complete' without doing anything with them. Check out some of the other 'completed' requests and you'll see what I'm talking about. Sad, it would be such a simple fix to make people happy but they could care less. :(

        Font size is now too large for the layout. Please allow users to scale fonts.

        How is this request completed? Someone asks for an option to modify font size - oh, let's guess and just make the font size bigger. Mission accomplished? WTF??

      • Cordt commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The new fonts are way too large. Please change or let the user adjust

        As this is marked as completed is there an explanation somewhere of what has been done, and how users can set font sizes

      • Jon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Would be great to have a choice of font and font size, but at the very least please set the size back to what it was before this July 2nd update! Too big and obnoxious now for desktop use.

        hey guys, these new fonts just dropped my productivity by 50%. please, please, please go back the way they were or give me a choice to change them

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree... hate the giant font size that makes me have to scroll endlessly to see all my feeds. Why on earth is there not a setting to adjust font size so those who like it small can have it small, and those who want it larger can have it larger?
