customize font size and typeface
Please provide a way to increase/decrease the font size or change its typeface. This should not depend on the theme selected, just as windows provides the option to select a theme as a separate option from selecting fonts.
Currently i see the fonts are too small and i would like to customize that without having to use Ctrl+ in my browser, i.e. i want the frames of articles to be the same size but just increase the size of the font inside them.
Hello, we’re happy to announce that you can now change your fonts and font sizes on both web and mobile: https://blog.feedly.com/premium-fonts/
Reading headline text in mobile app's list view is uncomfortably difficult. Please prioritize this feature.
Guys, I've found a workaround if you use Firefox. Download the plugin NoSquint and simply change the background color of Feedly page only. Voilà! Simple and perfect.
I would like to be able to use a serif typeface (on both iOS & Android apps). Being forced to use a sans serif font is deplorable, I find the serif font much easier on the eyes. Lack of font option's driving me to use less of Feedly, which is a shame coz otherwise the app is great.
Fonts are too small. Even Sacha Greif has similar opinion.
all in all, there needs to be a lot more user options and customizability. there are a number of suggestions across this uservoice that are all different aspects of this. my guess is if they were all combined together as one "lots more view options customizations" then this would actually be one of the top 5 (or at least top 10) user requests.
browser AND mobile, there needs to be a custom font size, font selections for titles and body copy typefaces (and, possibly quotes, as the mobile version is quite wonky), main UI background color (browser), separate reading background color (browser), etc. these *could* all be in themes, if themes were actually useful (not just changing the sidebar background color). fonts should be totally separate from themes, as well.
the browser should have a megaton of themes. hi contrast, low contrast, mixed, colorful, minimal palette, etc, etc. mobile should at least have night, day and low-contrast (grey background). the design of feedly is fairly high quality (i am a graphic designer, and a snobby one at that). but, i think you guys need to keep going with that, and take it further.

I'm only a recent user of Feedly, which might explain my puzzlement over many people saying that the font size is too small. Compared to Reader, both article titles and article body text are massive. In Full Article view, I do at least twice as much scrolling as compared to Reader. Yes, we need the ability to customize these things.
this old man needs better readability - quickly please!
I mainly use list view. Today i checked the new digg reader. And the font size is more better for browser view i think. also it uses better padding sizes. That's just one little issue that's annoying. Reading is not very eye friendly i think at the moment. Will stuck at feedly, but please offer some customization options for font sizes and increase the padding and margin in list view.
Font size is too small for me too.
I compare Feedly to Google reader on my PC, and Google Reader is bigger and much easier to read for me.
Feedly seems to have so much wasted white space between the text lines.

Agreed: though I'd like a general way to set the Colors, columns, fonts... in the verious formats of the various views. see: http://feedly.uservoice.com/forums/192636-suggestions/suggestions/3770348-provide-a-simple-way-to-change-text-and-background

Definitely cannot read text comfortably on my Nexus 7 - even with my reading glasses. (I'm only 43!) Tiny font size is the only thing holding me back from making Feedly my Google Reader replacement. Please, please address this issue across all platforms.

We need better fonts. I switch between fonts depends on the kind of articles I read. This is something missing here with Feedly.
Hate the new serif font; the readability is pretty terrible on some of the computers that I use. It's also pretty giant. Instead of making the fonts huge or tiny why can't there be a way to choose which one you want? Definitely a downgrade today.

Hate the new serif body font. Would really appreciate choice of headline font beyond Helvetica and sans-serif and also choice for body.
Nony Mouse commented
What Michael said -- why did the font just change to a serif font? It looks horrible...
Michael Graff commented
Suddenly the body font changed to a serif style. Please add an option so I can change it back.
There are really 2 issues here: 1) legibility of text in the feeds, and 2) legibility of the sidebar that Feedly supplies. (There's also another suggestion/thread here that just talks about the sidebar.) I can see how Stylish can help with #1, but I (personally) don't have a problem with #1 - and I don't want to increase the font size in all pages in my browser. I simply want Feedly to give us a better, more legible design for the sidebar.

Simply copy and paste this style into the chrome extension Stylish(https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylish/fjnbnpbmkenffdnngjfgmeleoegfcffe)
Then you are good to go.
if you want larger or smaller font-size, just increase or decrease the number
