    Default Street Namez

    Since I updated to google earth 5 I have not been able to see any street names on the map. Can someone please help me determine why this is the case. It doesn't matter if it is a city street, state highway, or if it's and interstate or expressway, I still don't see street names.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    In your layers, in the lower left corner of Google Earth, turn on the layer named "Roads".



    Now - in GE4 and below, the street names became larger as you zoomed in. In GE5 the street names are tiny and they stay the same size. These old eyes need something larger than a millimeter high if they want to be able to read things. Does anybody have any ideas about how to get the text size for road names to become larger as I zoom in closer?
