A little small when viewing a txt file? Yeah. Unreadable? I wouldn't say that. And doesn't look any smaller thatn before the previous update to me. But I could be wrong.
Tap the left point arrow control in the tool bar to close the Setting panel. It increased the size of the text as the available window becomes wider.
You should retract the left column when text are too small.

Thanks. I agree that closing the LH pane improves readability, but from TXT files I still think it's too small. As a separate issue, when I made these tests yesterday before posting I did try that, but with this result:
The same happened again today at first. But I then tried a soft reset of my iPad and that seems to have fixed whatever glitch caused that problem. The same file now looks like this:
Although better, IMO this is still unsatisfactorily small in a large file (before the further degradation caused by the scaling process used in this forum).
BTW, your example was of text from a DOC file, not a text file, which my tests indicate renders larger and clearer. Obviously it will depend on font type, size and style, but it's always better than from a text file.

Was just passing through, searching for "how to adjust display type size in iPad Dropbox app," and came upon this thread.
Thanks to those who suggested "hiding the sidebar" – that does make it a little better.
Mainly though, I just want to confirm the LEGITIMACY of Terry's gripe: THAT TEXT IS COMICALLY TOO TINY. FULL STOP.
It's just ridiculous. So good job for taking the effort to post some screenshots of that mess, Terry P.
