Perfect for a comic sans criminal
Primary school teacher with children on the dyslexic spectrum, can confirm that comic sans is actually easier to read and I find it much easier to use in my class displays than regular font which is quite hard to read from a distance for young readers
Very well, you have permission to use the typeface.
Your shoes are untied
Knife sharp, cut good!
Throw it away.
There are fonts that have been specially designed to be easier to read for people with dyslexia. For instance: https://www.dyslexiefont.com/en/dyslexie-font/
So please use them instead of ruining another generation with Comic Sans :(
What a dull name
Meanwhile, everyone else...
Not the sharpest font
United they stand
And since options are good, here is OpenDyslexic: a free and open source font.
Comic Sans - the fastest way to make something look unprofessional
More like /sub/mildlyinfuriating
Divided they fall
That was rather blunt.
its a bad font - even if you want something silly looking, better alternatives exist.
people who are bad at design or just lazy often gravitate towards using it
comic sans is a bit like a trap that professionals keep around so they can see when people are not using professionals.
comic sans is seen as synonymous with ignorance(willful or not) of how to appropriately select fonts. academics tend to lose patience with ignorance troughout a career spent fighting it i guess.
God, MY EYES! I've always described Comic Sans as aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes when I'm reading a challenging boring article, I use inspect element to change it to Comic Sans. I've found it helps my comprehension. I'm not dyslexic. OpenDyslexic is actually painful on my eyes. I know this is meant for dyslexic people, but if other non-dyslexic people have the same reaction I'd teach a mixed class of high schoolers in Comic Sans. Times New Roman makes me glaze over. I can handle Arial, but I do personally prefer Comic Sans(I don't use it though. I write everything in Arial).
How often do they get wingdings?
And for sure, parents get arial or times new roman depending on my mood.
In the UK, Sassoon fonts are quite widely used in schools as they are easy to read and teach proper letter formation. Much better than Comic Sans, but unfortunately not free though.
Why is this font hated?
It's a matter of having taste, but if you want an authoritative quote:
Comic Sans is a typeface I designed when I saw an application called Microsoft Bob, that was aimed at children and new computer users in 1994.
Like the tone of a spoken voice, the characteristics of a typeface convey meaning. Clearly, Comic Sans as a voice conveys silliness, childish naivete, irreverence.
