Default [NOT A BUG] RWR font makes it difficult to distinguish between certain characters.

Not really a bug, but some characters shown on the RWR are very hard to tell apart unless you zoom in really far, for example a "6" and an "8" (see screenshot). Somehow doubt that this kind of issue would exist on the real thing (does anyone have pictures showing real symbology?), especially considering that a fix is really easy, for example making the 6 look like a 9 rotated upside down would solve the problem.

I get you point and I will see what we can do with it. But if it's not a bug why have you placed it in bugs section?

Nice, thanks.

Because it appears to be the most appropriate section to post it in, given there isn't one specifically for things that aren't bugs but are possibly modeled incorrectly (such as this, or antenna elevation axis issue, MFDs being too dim or certain flight model issues), so these are usually posted in the bug section too from what I see.

Font is pretty tricky to read and #6 and #8 look identical in VR.
