Hi shigotonoatoni,

The previous version of text rendering used a webview with "font family" monospace. The system then picks a monospace font it has. From a brief google search it looks like iOS has only a few monospace fonts, Courier, Courier-new and Menlo. Which one is chosen depends on your device; we don't set a specific one.

The new version uses the system font, which is Apple's San Francisco fonts (this used to be Helvetica Neue pre-iOS9; the two look very similar).

Hi Sigatonoatini, did the font change only in files with the .txt extension? Also, are these files in English?

Yes, and yes, I think it was just with the latest 'Big' UI change.
I'm just looking for what the font name was, it looked like 'courier' but which version exactly if you could share that information?

 

Thanks!
