|Spanish term or phrase: tiene las letras gordas|
|This expression appears on a tutotrial about how to install a specific software on an electronic reading deviced. I googled it and from what I understood, it is an expression to say that a procedure is very simple.|
This is the paragraph it is in:
Aprenderás a crear tu librería, importar libros digitales, convertir formatos, leer eBooks sin DRM y con DRM usando Adobe® Digital Editions. Los libros con DRM no los leerás con Calibre sino con Adobe® Digital Editions pero todo lo demás lo harás con Calibre. Muy fácil, tiene las letras gordas. Aunque también los puedes pasar del PC a tu dispositivo móvil o lector electrónico con Calibre, por supuesto.
Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

very easy, you can't go wrong / very easy and user-friendly
I suggested "user-friendly" because it's not easy to say in Spanish in a few words like in English, however this is what is meant here

very easy (to use) and intuitive / very easy to use and to learn
"Tiene las letras gordas" means to have or require little education, therefore referring to the process of learning how to use it, not to the use itself. It addresses its use before and tha's why the sentence starts with "muy fácil" and than reinforce the idea of how easy it is by addressing the learning how to use it, saying "tiene las letras gordas". So, it's saying it's very easy to use and learn, or, if you want to put it in a better and nicer way, very easy (to use) and intuitive. I prefer this last one but either one is faithful to the idea.
