Split Screen problems

I’m sure something has already been posted about this, but I’m far too lazy and new at this to look.
My boyfriend and I preordered the game and play split-screen. We have a friend that plays with us online. So far the game is really great story wise. But both my boyfriend and I agree that the text is way to small on both of our screens and most of the time we can’t read what we need to be doing. It is driving us insane. Apart from that and the bit of lag we get when we both try to do something at the same time, things are great.
