I would very much like to see this feature prioritized.  Articulate constantly touts the accessibility features that Storyline offers.  Those are wonderful things, but what about those of us who spend 8 or 10 hours a day using Storyline?  Personally, my eyesight isn't what it used to be.  A font size that I can actually read without having to adjust every single slide is not a want; it's a need.

At the very least, can you not reset the default size to something reasonable?  What was the logic behind choosing a 9 point font?

Hello Everyone,

Like most of you here, this issue of not being able to globally change the font size for the notes is frustrating. I'm not young like my chosen avatar so it's difficult for my old eyes to read fonts set at 9 pt. 

I recently saw a post by Thor Melicher (Export all captions in one click? Yes! How about slide notes? That too, and more! - Articulate Storyline Discussions - E-Learning Heroes) stating that he has developed an app that can change the "slide notes font, size, and color". I was able to test the app for this purpose and it worked as advertised.

The app does a lot more than just changing the font parameter in the slide notes. For example, I'm able to extract all my course's media assets such as images, videos, audio, and captions into individual folders without having to open any slide in SL. This is a really big deal if you have to work on an SL file that was created by someone else or in my case, need to repurpose those assets to use in other Articulate projects and non-articulate projects. 

If you need relief from the eye strain and frustration of having to repeatedly change the font size on each slide, check out this app, it will make using SL more enjoyable.
