DO Ideas 2

Don't use Helvetica

At least not to display the Client and API Keys. "I" and "l" are indistinguishable, and the "0" and "O" are a bit close as well.

When using a mobile app like Basin, this is an actual issue.

    The new CP it will be displayed in a fixed-width font.

    Thanks!

    I agree, it's pretty tough to read the chars.

    Another helpful tip is to email yourself the client id and api key then access it on your device so you can copy and paste into Basin. That's what I've been suggesting Basin customers do as I get a lot of support requests based on bad keying into the fields. Every single one has been resolved by copying and pasting the credentials into the app :)

    Hey Christian,

    Thanks for the suggestion, we should drop them in a pre or code block so its easier to distinguisth.

    Thanks!
