    Hello to all,
    since I use ASP.NET AJAX UI v 2016.2.607 I found that web controls are larger and with more padding. I thought it was due to the new Skins Bootstrap but the controls remain large even with the old skin Metro or Default. Depends on what?

    This becomes a problem when I have to update a Visual Studio 2015 Project to the new version of Telerik controls 2016.2.607. The layout is compromised by the new size of the controls.

    I attach a JPG that demonstrates the problem

    Thanks so much

    This is probably related to the elastic capabilities of the controls when RenderMode==Lightweight and the lack of font on the page. You can read how the controls work with fonts here:

    I suggest adding a rule similar to the following:

    body {
        font-size: 14px;
        font-family: "Segoe UI", Arial, Sans-serif;

    or the following to fall back to the 12px font-size the Classic mode used:

    body {
        font-size: 12px;
        font-family: "Segoe UI", Arial, Sans-serif;
