Singletrack Mag Font size struggling to read!
Mag just dropped through the door and a quick flick through and I,m struggling with the font size, seems to be plenty of room on the pages to knock it up a tad.
With the general readership probably being of the more mature age might be an idea to knock it up a bit………..please
Might be forced to go buy some reading glasses 🙁
Anyone else struggling?

Well, I have the latest copy next to me, the font is as per normal no?
I’ve just flicked through it, there’s one page of black on light grey, and another black on brown, every other page is black text on a white background.
It’s the most legible mag out there..Posted 4 years agopatricksingletrackMember
Coming soon…Singletrack LARGE PRINT EDITION.
ePub and Kindle formats are available form the MagArchive. Both support text resizing, font choice, hight contrast etc. My Kindle will even read them to me. Not discounting complaints about the print size, just letting you know alternatives are available.Posted 4 years agohighlandmanMember

A couple of things come to mind. Not everyone can afford or justify the extra cost of these things.Posted 4 years ago
Nor is the tablet a good substitute for a decent paper magazine, sometimes there’s more to it than just the written words in isolation. The layout and the pictures help create the world that the writer is presenting.ampthillSubscriber
I might try it on Kindle. How does one find it, I’m a subscriber
I’m of the age where my near sight is going but it does seem to me that the mag is now much less legible, with no benefit to me
Weird font in 69 is no different in size but less legible. i think the paper was whiterPosted 4 years agoMarkSubscriber
We’ve gone back and compared this issue to previous issues going back 2 years. The font is the same and the size is the same. We can see no difference at all. This issue was printed sheet fed rather than web offset. The only difference that should make is an improvement in print quality, not a reduction.
We have noted some article standfirsts that are printed white on a pale or ‘busy’ background and are hard to read, but the text is the same as it has always been.
Ampthill, the kindle issues are available in the mag archive. Just go to the issue you want and click the ‘Kindle’ button. This will start a file download to your computer. You then transfer the file to your device using either the usb cable and copying the file into the ‘documents’ folder on your Kindle or by attaching the file to an email and sending it to your device via your kindle email address. It’s much more straightforward if you use your kindle to browse to the magarchive and activate the download as it will put itself in the right place on your device.Posted 4 years agotomasoSubscriber
The type is smaller than any other mag I read, but the line spacing seems wider. The font is Clea enough it just needs to jump up a size or two and drop the line spacing a bit 🙂
Just read the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery article and I’m looking forward to the Xmas do the group I night ride with are doing to the Orange Tree in Kirkby 🙂
