Default PT 2019 Font Change

Has anyone else noticed the font has changed slightly on clips in the edit window?

I didn't really notice at first, but today I was editing up a long 30 min VO recording that has a lot of edits and I noticed I was straining to see the names on the clips. I thought to myself, this looks different. So I opened up the same session in 2018.7 (I have them both installed concurrently) and there is definitely a difference.

Here's a couple of comparison pics.

Pro Tools 2018.7



Pro Tools 2019.5



The font seems to be slightly bolder with an increased contrast/brightness. If you look closely, you'll also see the contrast has been increased on the actual channel colours and meters as well.

Does anyone else find this harder to look at/work with? I don't mid the change in contrast on the channel, it's the font I find hard on the eyes. I'm not sure this is one of those things you get used to. It really seems harder to work with to my eyes and I actually have 20/20 vision.

Thoughts?

I am on Windows but the font change was literally the first thing i noticed after updating. I actual dont have any problem with the new style but the windows font looks different from your screenshot so....

Thanks for chiming in.

If you have the time, I’d be curious to see what it looks like on Windows.

To me, the new font style almost looks blurry. The kerning is too tight and it’s just harder to read.

FYI - I’m on a 27” 2K display. Would also be interested to hear from others using 1080p displays and 4K displays. Not sure if it makes a difference or not.

Yes

I can confirm this here on my mac.
Its not so easy to read longer names anymore.
Would be good if they revert it in the next 2019.6 version
I dont understand why companies change things when there is no need of.

Great. Happy it’s not just me.

You’re right, the longer the name, the worse it is. I also find if text is capitalised, it’s even worse.

I do hope someone looks into this as it’s quite fatiguing.
