I wish that were true, but I've had to expand the size of the font from
invisible to 100 points or more for every box of text I've used to add
captions or labels to a picture for at least 20 years. If its a tool
option, tell me please how to set it so its big enough to be read by
default. I ATM, have whatever version is std for debian stretch.
