Hello and good morning

We are tweaking the fonts on the site to make questions and posts more readable and hoping to update them everywhere soon enough.

Hi bb

Thanks for this good deed, this is what i was waiting for. I am practicing 40-50 questions/day at GC and after 20 questions i feel much pain in my eyes due to small fonts. Now this font size is almost perfect and looks nearly equal to a CAT font size on GMAT Prep. Thanks for this new change it will prove beneficial to eyesight also.

That's exactly what Bunuel and I were feeling - GMAT Club has become a pain in the eyes

Hi bb

Perfect size and easy on the eyes. Agree with SajjadAhmad - CAT format had a better font size and this is a positive change.

Thanks.

Best,

Hello bb ........ may be I am overthinking again!!

Below are the 1st 2 things I've noticed after the change :
1. The New GMAT timer stat is looking a bit jumbled up( only at RC)
2. Peoples GMAT Scores are looking a bit jumbled up ( its in 1 line at their profile ...... but in 2 lines at the replies)
(currently neither of them are any easier to read than pre-font change era)

Thought about exactly the same thing when I noticed the verbal score being displaced on the next line! It is kind of annoying and maybe needs a minor fix. However, the posts are looking fabulous with the new font size.

Best,

Cannot agree more . The visual experience of the learning/post content is amazing now. The ones I've mentioned are really trivial and/or aesthetic.

Thank you u1983. I caught that as well yesterday and we already have an update in the queue ready to be released for the GMAT Score alignment as soon as there is some slow time on GMAT Club - probably in a few hours.

Thanks for the tip about RC timer - that was new to me.

BB.

Font changes would really help! Thanks guys for making this happen.

Just a suggestion. For RCs, it would be great if the passage window could be of the same size with the same size font similar to that of the official GMAT RC, just so we could have the same feel of solving a RC on GC as we would on an official test. For example, if the official RC window can display 300 words without scrolling, then RC windows on GC should show the same amount of words if possible.

Funny enough, I have increased the RC box earlier today. Can you find an example of an official RC that fits a box and I will match it on GMAT Club?
You can PM me the screenshot or post it here.

bb Please find screenshots of 3 RCs from the online GMATPrep software attached below. My browser is set to 100% zoom. So maybe we can these screenshots to get an idea and adjust the font, width and length of the RC passages on GC accordingly. I believe the official exam looks similar to the online GMATPrep with zoom set to 100%.

Thank you! I think it is well matched now (I made a few small tweaks to the box sizes)

Screenshot 1: https://gmatclub.com/forum/many-politic ... 37377.html - Fits!

Screenshot 2: Does not fit on Your screen https://gmatclub.com/forum/historical-d ... 32340.html - it cuts off at the exact same point in the forum

Screenshot 3: https://gmatclub.com/forum/when-the-obj ... 31027.html - Fits!

Thank you. The GMAT Score overhand and RC timers have also been fixed.
At this point all suggestions and issues appear to be addressed (though it is normal for additional things to come out as we keep updating things so please report them here).

Thanks!
