Count me in, font is almost impossible to read and I've tried the game in 3 computers with different screens / resolutions.

I'm young (well on the younger side at least) and I too have trouble reading the text in game, this needs to be fixed ASAP as well in general the entire UI (including frames) needs a work over.

As everyone else has said, add me to the list.

I have problems with eye strain occasionally but I have good eye sight. However, I can't read the majority of text in the game without squinting or leaning in to my monitor. My eyes hurt after playing for just a short amount of time. This doesn't happen with other video games. I definitely agree that this should be at the top of the list of fixes.

Same here. I have gotten the chat window font large enough to read, but the quest text, tooltips, egc. Are all way too small to read and both my wife and I need to squint and get way too close to the screen to read any of it.

Please give us a text scaling option for the UI!

I get a headache after straining and squinting my eyes to see the text.. I play on my laptop at a res. of 1366x768. Most unusual from a Bioware game.. Thank God for the VO's, otherwise I'd end up worse than Mr.Magoo .

The fuzzy blue on blue of the codex i find almost impossible to read.
Scalable text options and more a more customable ui are a must imo.

At the minute im straining to read some of the text and it hurts.

Apart form that im enjoying it cheers!

Add me to the list as well. I am tired of using a magnifying glass to read the quest text and answers. Yes, I'm middle-aged, but too small is too small at any age.

Please, fix this. This is a major issue and might force me to stop playing the game after only one week. I know there are lot of bugs in the game, but this has to be priority #1.

Agree with all ,

Can I add that I also find it hard when using the inbuilt magnifying glass on a map to stay on what I mouse over as its way to small.

The font on maps needs to be bigger or adjustable.

I know there are plenty of identical replies like mine but I also am adding my name to 'the list'. I am playing on a 40" screen and am completely baffled as to why this has not been picked up on before the launch.

My eyesight is not brilliant but when the game plays like a dream apart from this it is really annoying. Another silly feature of the small text is when it back drops against the alien who doesn't speak galactic standard - it is quite literally invisible and you can't follow the conversation at all

The game is designed to give us total control but some of us will be randomly choosing responses we normally wouldn't due to this.

FIX PLEASE - I am otherwise enjoying the game btw!
