Change standard font size for all messages
could you PLEASE offer a choice of BIGGER fonts for our messages, instead of the microscopic font you offer. do you pay by the font size
I'd like the ability to change the default font size for all emails from 14 pt to something larger.
I'm confused on this one.
Aren't there already a choice of ~7 fonts as well as font size selection?
I am able to select a font and size and make it default (it even prompts me to set default). Sure they stuck to business fonts, but don't really need all the other fancy ones, from a functionality standpoint.
As for letter spacing, that is determined by chosen font, but does appear to be a bit narrower. They need to fix that and make it so it is in accordance with basically universal standards.
Adding mono, serif, and sans versions of fonts would be helpful.
I would like them to add the Liberation font series. I find them to be the best.
Can Proton provide an explanation why, after almost six years, it is still not reviewing this idea?
I find it quite odd to not let users decide on something as basic as font size and refuse to communicate about it as well.
The font size isn't the problem; it's the kerning. There isn't enough space between the individual letters/characters. In comparison to emails I receive from MS Outlook, I noticed that the words in my sentences appear so much more bunched together and cluttered. I suspect the issue stems from the typeface rather than the font size.
I prefer to read my email from my desktop but the font is so small I am forced to use my phone most of the time. PLEASE PLEASE let us ENLARGE THE FONT ON THE INBOX.
I love that my mail is now secure. But paying for an email service and not being able to read it comfortably is absurd. What am I paying for? This should be a simple fix that all would benefit from.

The ability to choose fonts of an odd numbered size would be beneficial. Outlook uses Calibri 11pt and it would be good to select this due to the popularity of Outlook.
Add ability to setup the default fonts (style, size and etc.) for the new messages or when you reply. At the moment the fonts selection and modifications are available at the time of creating a new message. It has to be done manually each time. It would be nice to have a default font configuration in the settings of the account which can be set to desired font settings once instead each time for each message.
Hi all, sharing this in the hope it may help others out there....
I did a few tests trying to find the closest equivalent to Calibri 11 in Outlook which is what I'm most used to. Seems the closest were:
Proton Helvetica 16 = Normal Helvetica 12
Proton Helvetica 14 = Normal Helvetica 10.5
Proton Arial 16 = Normal Arial 12
Proton Arial 14 = Normal Arial 10.5
Proton sets it default size to 16, which doesn't appear to translate to 16 in the real world. Now that I realise this, while it's not ideal, it's kinda more manageable.
In short, if you normally choose between Calibri 10,11,12 in Microsoft land (most people?), then you're probably best to go for Helvetica or Arial 16 or 14.
Please try it yourself on webmail, via outlook and on your phone. I'd be keen to hear if my numbers are the same for others.

I like to customize all of my e-mails with my preferred font, size and color.
For instance, among the options that you offer, my preferred are the font Monospace (My favorite font is Comic Sans but since you don't offer this font, I set for Monospace instead.), size 16px and color green (I used to write all of my e-mails in purple when I used Gmail but once again, you don't offer purple color so I set for green instead.) so I write all of my e-mails in Monospace font, 16px and green.
But I have to manually set these options every time I write an e-mail.
I never understood why it is not possible to set these options to automatically apply to every e-mail and I have been thinking for a while to request it to you.
Also, as I mentioned, there are not many customization options available, only 8 fonts and very limited range of colors.
So I would like to also request more customization options, at least all the fonts and colors available in LibreOffice would be a nice touch to allow more creativity and writing styles, don't you think?
I mean, all these Arial black e-mails are boring. :-3
The UI text on the iPhone mobile app is just very small and light, especially for those of us who need reading glasses. This is true even when the global phone font settings are set larger for accessibility. I can see that this has been an issue brought up by many users in the past that still hasn't been addressed. Please consider a function where either the UI font size adjusts with the global phone system settings or add in a feature where it can be customizable within the app.
is there a way that the fonts can be changed/modified and/or make the current font bold? In addition, can the font be increased in size? it is hard to read such faded/small print. Thanks
SHould apply to compose mode and incoming mail
The font size is absurd. Luckily it is also present in the trial version and I can look for another mail provider before I start paying.
This is seriously annoying. I've just discovered it after joining.
I paid the subscription for Proton Mail last month; however, had I known there was no provision for changing the default font, I would not have. I am getting complaints from recipients that when I use the iOS app (on which I cannot change the font size even on individual emails), they cannot read the text. This is a basic feature and every other mail provider I have used offers the ability to change font type and size. PLEASE GIVE PROTONMAIL USERS THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE DEFAULT TEXT SO THAT IT APPLIES to EVERY EMAIL WHETHER USING THE WEBSITE OR APP.
I'm not an editor, publisher or book maker but I still think you should be able to set a default.
The most recent upgrade has resulted in the font size being significantly reduced in size. Why was this change implemented without warning, and without any known means of setting it back to its previous size? Come on ProtonMail, your customers are your lifeblood - listen to them!
Please make it possible to set a default font and size. I'm an editor and publisher and book maker, and that matters a lot to me. And besides, Arial is totally unclasp font to be stuck with!

please create a fonts changer,
everything looks amazing except the font and size of the menu and emails, I have a 4k monitor and the text is so tiny for me, I have to change the size in the browser settings to see your menu and emails text,
