    Question webclient/theme: font definition?

    Hello,
    I finally upgraded from ZCS 608 (FOSS) to ZCS 802( NE starter).
    I have still lots to discover, but ZCS seems more structured and cleaner (together if that's the word) than zcs6.

    The new themes however I do not much care for: the 'faded' look is less readable than the version6 one
    Example the inbox on both versions: I can hardly make out the difference between read/unread messages

    I looked at the skin.properties file for the above Beach skin on both versions, but I don't find any font settings

    help as ever is welcome

    i agree with you, there are some things not easy to distinguish between. i'm also hoping in the future for an option to just increase the font size across the board for everything in zimbra. i know you can ctrl+ but it would be more convenient if there was a built in option

    thanks for replying,
    I already use ctrl + as a stop-gap. it helps a bit, but it reduces useable screen space.

    Part of that may be an issue with the font, which is why ZCS 8 also introduced a new user preference for the font selection. Check out Preferences > General > Font for the 4 font family choices available. The "Classic" font family will utilized the same set of fonts which were available in ZCS 6.

    The classic font indeed provides indeed better readability. I guess I must face it: I can no longer run with the young 'modern' crowd, but must accept to be old 'classic'

    thank you for the help and good work on zcs 8

    i can't really tell much of a difference between the font selections. they all look very similar to me

    below a comparison of the different font settings - Firefox at same zoom-level (0)

    The classic and wide setting are for me the most readable, standard and modern not so.

    I would advised to copy your favourite theme from zimbra 7 and install on zimbra 8 after neccessory changes. Simple.
