Does anyone know how to increase the indices (e.g. for vertex ids) font size and/or color in the viewport. Currently its a '2 pixel navy colored font on a dark grey backdrop' which can only be read by nocturnal species.

I'm using blender 2.93

You can change it in your preferences->themes->3D Viewport

color: Face Angle text

point size: vertex size

font size: you can change it here:
