    After upgrading to ASP.NET AJAX 2015_1_401 or to ASP.NET AJAX 2016_2_607, fonts of my website are different in size and family.


    These different fonts are in regular text or asp label, not in telerik radcontrols. Now they are smaller than before.


    Can you please tell me what is happening?

    Hello Daniel,

    The following article explains how we use fonts: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/general-information/controlling-visual-appearance/fonts.

    The notable thing is that the Lightweight RenderMode does not have a font set as of Q1 2016 SP1. Thus, the controls will inherit the font settings from their parent containers (e.g., the <body>). This also applies to elements inside our controls—now that we do not impose fonts, the font settings the developer has defined in the page stylesheet will take effect.

    Hi Marin, thank you very much.

    I found the solution and it was the Splitter that use the skin Black and it seems that in the new version you changed the Font style of this skin, so everything has changed.

    I solved it creating a custom skin with the information of Black skin for my previous version and now it looks as before.


    thanks a lot,
