    Hi! I haven't had to explore until two years ago with the redesign of macOS, but I was wondering if there's anyway I can make the San Francisco font bold, like iOS. Especially in the iTunes Store, that would make a huge difference. I already use f.lux, because the warmer temperature helps the screen to hurt my eyes less.

    Thank You.

    you can bump up the font size in finder prefs, safari, etc... but perhaps, consider changing the display scaling (system preferences>display>scaled>larger text).

    Changing the resolution doesn't help things. I don't have a retina display, anyway.

    never mind retina vs non-retina... changing the resolution didn't work? larger text?? what about changing it in the finder ("view options") and safari...?

    My main issue is that it feels like San Francisco is generally thinner than Lucida Grande... I reinstalled Mavericks just to see, and it's amazing how much easier it is for me to see and read and use.
