MCTB online: font change?

Posts: 6 Join Date: 1/1/24 Recent Posts
​​​​​​​Did anyone else notice the font change in MCTB online? We seem to have lost the lovely serif font. For me it's Arial now. Was this intentional?

The downloadable PDF remains in serif font. I suspect only Daniel Ingram can answer for the change ito the online format.

Hey @danielmingram did you mean to change the MCTB font? I assume it's a mistake. The serif font was easier to read.

​​​​​​​Would be greatly appreciated if you could change it back emoticon

From what I can see, it has changed from

font-family: Garamond, serif,Garamond, serif;

to

font-family: "Source Sans Pro", Arial, sans-serif;

The font change is seen across multiple browsers and operating systems. Not just for me, but seemingly for everyone.

I believe there was a website-level change about a month ago, that changed the font from Garamond to Arial.

Hence I started this thread, so the issue could be fixed at the website level.

Unless it was an intentional change - then all is well and we can let it go.

​​​But I believe the Garamond is more readable for long-format text.

Personally I would not react until the font was changed to Comic Sans
