New player here, finally for my full screen to work but the lettering on the map are way to small for this swabby to see. Is there any way to make the lettering bigger so my blind old self can see???

No.

Your only 2 in game options are to either use the Alt Font or reduce your screen resolution size.  Both options require use of command line switches.  All detailed in the patch readme file and in several post in the Tech sub forum, which is the appropriate location for this type of query.

Another Option:

Windows 10 has a very good magnifier that can zoom full screen.

I’ve not tried magnifier in awhile.

But…..The Game is sensitive to being dropped out when it runs in full screen mode.
Windows 10 updates don’t help. Magnifier may not work well in full screen for this game.

If you are going to be dropping in and out to see tracker or combat reporter
you should run it in windowed mode.

There are programs that let you run in window borderless mode.
That might be best for you.

I’ve been meaning to try out borderless but have not got around to it yet.
