First of all let me state that I am very new to Lightroom. When a friend downloaded a free trial I noticed that the font size underneath the histogram was much smaller than when I recently signed up for the monthly subscription. Could anyone please guide me and tell me how I can change the font so it's not so large. I also noticed when I'm using Lightroom in my college class it's much smaller also. I have a PC but that didn't effect the first time it was downloaded for the free trial. Any help is greatly appreciated.

But give it a try by going to:Edit >> Preferences >> Interface (tab)Lightroom >> Preferences >> Interface (tab) on Mac OSClick the drop down icon to the right of Font Size and change to Large. Then quit LR and re-launch for the change to take effect.In LR6 there are more choices:AutoSmallMedium150%2...
