Updated the macOS app for Micro.blog to version 1.9.2, switching to the default system font. I’ll continue to tweak based on feedback.

@manton I prefer the system font... but one thing that I would like is a customizable width of the window.

@numericcitizen You can resize the window now. If it looks stuck, try zooming to full screen and back, then it should be resizable again.

@manton oh! Great! Feel much better now. Thanks.

@manton Is there any particular advantage to using the app vs. the website?

@MitchWagner For reading the timeline, replies, and posting, I think the macOS app is a better experience. For more advanced stuff like managing uploads or blog design, the web has the most features.

@manton Noticed a bug when in dark mode on the Mac and making a post/reply. Image attached so you can see. Latest version of all the things.

@manton I’ll have to try it.

I tried the web interface for reading the timeline on the iPad this morning and found I preferred it to the app.

@philbowell Thanks. Should fix itself if you restart the app. I'll look into it.

@manton Does it auto-update?

@prologic To update the macOS app, just choose "Check for Updates" from the Micro.blog menu. It should also automatically check every once in a while.

@odd that might be preferable to whatever serif I am presented with on Sierra (Micro.blog 1.9.1 and 1.9.2) / @manton

@cn @odd Try giving the new font a day or two and see how you like it. It took me a little while to get used to. (1.9.1 should use Avenir, and 1.9.2 should use the system font, San Francisco, which most apps use.)

@manton You are talking about the iOS version? That’s the one I use almost all of the time, and I’m quite pleased with the new (and larger font). I’m sure @cn was talking about the OSX app on Sierra.

@odd iOS is 1.8 afaik

@cn Yes, you’re right. Thats what I’m using 99% of the time, and I love the new, much larger font in the compose /reply screen especially. But wasn’t it my (joke) message about using Comic Sans @manton included me in the reply to you for? I haven’t tried the macOS version, or the web version on macOS in a long while…
