YNAB Toolkit – Interface Fonts — Updated!
The great thing about software is that developers are always tweaking, fixing, and improving things. The frustrating thing about software is that developers are always tweaking, fixing, and improving things.
In other words, software is constantly changing. And people like me, people who help people use software, are always trying to keep up so we can help you keep up. I’m not complaining; I love this stuff. I just don’t like being caught napping.
In my General Settings tutorial, part 1 of a 4-part series on the Toolkit for YNAB, I mentioned that the option to switch fonts didn’t work on my MacBook in either Chrome or Firefox. Well, someone changed something because now the Interface Fonts setting works just fine.
Below is a gallery of screenshots displaying all of the font options currently available. I personally don’t find any of them to be an improvement over the default font, but that’s me. Perhaps you like Roboto Condensed better. Or the unique serif font, Inconsolota. I’d really rather see an option to increase the font size as my eyes are getting old and cranky and don’t see as well as they used to. If you’d like to see an option to increase font size, consider sharing that with the Toolkit developers.
