    No.. No.. NO.... it is NOT "the fonts...." we all need to SUE the LCD/LED industry, Dell, and HP, in a class action for cramming too many pixels into the displays and by doing so, "making everything smaller with smaller pixels" and forcing us to buy the newer displays while "hiding" the old ones. What a pathetic leadership crisis, and what a disappointment that you all blame ONLY Dentrix, and a further disappointment that Dentrix would even accept the blame for this. Did you people seriously NOT notice that the ICONS and TOOLBARS, and entire graphical user interface are smaller also? Don't you people wonder why is hasn't been fixed.... I just told you why .. its not the fonts... its a power hungry tech industry that forced us to update displays and a new operating system to scale them. And that forces developers like Dentrix to rewrite and update programs that were perfectly fine and did not need to be changed. Did any of you bother to research "productivity displays?" I always buy displays with the largest pixels I can get for front desk workstations. Why isn't that in the system requirements for Dentrix?!?! Schein taken by surprise, I suppose, because (as usual) they are not a tech company. So why should WE spend money on updating Dentrix when Schein does not understand how to stay ahead of Microsoft, Apple and Intel?

    seriously, my patients cannot read the small font on the treatment plan. They can't see the prices because they are too small of font. How do I enlarge this?

    Create an option to make the ledger show in larger fonts.

    It's great you allow us to vote for and add new features, but how do we know if they actually make it to the roadmap? How do we know what the timelines are for any releases. Looking over the top requests it looks like there have been updates such as researching or in development. Why is there no dates associated to when they went into researching mode? How long does it stay in that mode without updates. There is also a good amount of votes for several items which have no updates even though there are ones 2k+ votes, this seems like enough. Is there any type understanding of the my voice process? It kind of feels like a way to deflate customer requests with an unknown timeline associated to them.

    We have a lot of older patients who can not see the new font size very well. I would like to see an option to make the font bigger for printing out and reviewing with patients whom have a difficult time seeing and are in the operatory waiting on their work to be completed.

    From G6 to G6.2 the font is smaller and a bit blurry on the treatment plan. There is wayyy too much dead white space before the clinical/treatment notes as well. PLEASSSEEEEE Update soon! Can it maybe be a personalization setting so we can control it. It

    cannot be done yet. Looks like could either be handled similar to Appointment Book (Setup > Clinical Note Font...), or add basic word-processor functionality to Clinical Notes directly, or add it as a "Definition" in Office Manager ( Maintenance > Practice Setup > Definitions... )

    The ledger is difficult to read and I wanted to see if I could enlarge the font. I was informed this is not a option at this time. It is not very to do audits and I feel like i have to squint to see anything. I do not want to have to change the complete resolution of my computer as everything else is fine.

    This would be super helpful for those of us using larger and/or high resolution monitors. Beyond text size the buttons could be enlarged as well. Something similar to a high resolution mode.

    On the ledger the font changes to where you cannot read the info because it is too small and light too see. The other thing that seems to happen every now and then is in the chart the buttons for x, process & dr's notes disapear making you have to close the chart and go back into the chart to get the buttons and font changes here to being too small and light to read until you get closer. Also on the chart the top hot keys are not accurate when you click them. For example, if you are going to the ledger you would get print patient chart. Also the writing on the top where the buttons are goes to a double writing ALSO in the ledger.

    After G6 was installed, the font on the treatment plan case set up printout became too small for some of our patients to read. We have to print and enlarge with our copier.
  • Anne Matteo commented
    July 09, 2019 04:22
    Please go back to old ledger coloring. The G6 is very washed and too light. The font is so skinny and small. Even if we're able to have BOLD option for the font on the ledger it would help. We are all squinting trying to see the lines, numbers and words on the ledger .. It s a real problem.

    The font size changes throughout dentrix, except for the family file section which has most of the patient info. It does not make much sense as to why it's not included as well.Thank you!~

    Just upgraded to G6 and now Front Office is complaining that they can't read Ledger. Need to be able to increase font size, change font, setup colors, etc.; similar to Appointment Book, where we have such options. Apparently, the work-around is to adjust the system screen resolution so that all apps in the system will be affected... not a very good idea...

    Apparently when the resolution is changed, Dexis images become blurry and harder to see. I would like to see this functionality added to all modules in DTX, to prevent such an issue in other programs. (Both fonts and Icons need to be adjustable!)

    After my latest Dentrix update I’m having major issues with “font size”! You can no longer see the "Okay" button, it’s missing. What I find most frustrating is that this has been an issue since 2010. How long must we complain for action to be taken?
  • Sheila commented

    I am having a major issue with this. We just upgrades our monitors and nothing is helping with the font size. If you increase your DPI within windows, only a few things change/increase and some of the things that do increase causes more issues because they weren't designed to show in a larger font. I am struggling to see many of the screens except the appointment book. PLEASE make this change ASAP.

    This was posted a few years back, has the ability been implemented? Even after adjusting DPI, it doesn't resolve this and the only location I can find an option to change the font size is in the appointments. On a current day monitor using the proper resolution, the size of... everything... is rediculous. My eyes want to bleed.

    This would be VERY nice!!! Currently the practice name or doctor's name is in HUGE letters at the top of the page, and the patient's name is in teeny tiny letters below it. THIS IS NOT THE FOCUS OUR PRACTICE WOULD LIKE TO PROMOTE. It places the emphasis on the doctor and how much the plan costs as opposed to the patient and their care being our priority. Thanks!
