Futura (?) font doesn't work well
« on: June 20, 2016, 08:45:43 am »
The choice of Futura as a font (I think that's what it is) across all the apps' menus and preset names is a poor decision from a usability perspective.
It is very difficult to read. Many characters looking almost identical 'a', 'o' etc.
It is difficult to read at lower sizes.

I am sure there are many other more readable, superior visibility fonts - perhaps workshop a few others and see the differences in readability.

There is a good reason that Futura is typically used for very large, 'logo'/ 'slogan' uses, and not for things as small as synth preset names.

cheers Jeff
