Larger font for the MP GUI

Post by StreifLicht »

I found that for a larger font of the GUI I have to modify the theme (style.css). Is there a info available how to do this? It seems that my eyes are too old for the standard font size... ;-)
Or perhaps there is a modified style sheet already available?
Please help...

Can I modify an existing one or do I have to create a new one?
For me it would be very important, since XnView is the BEST software I found for my needs. Only the small font is very tiring for me.

I have used the Blender-UI-Tuning.qss from miki for my first try to become larger fonts in the UI.
I clicked >xView >Theme >Old Dark and a window popped up.
I entered in style_sheet.qss the following:

Code: Select all

/*******************************************************************************
** CUSTOM FONT SIZES
*******************************************************************************/
/* Default for all widgets */
QWidget{ font-size: 11pt; }

/* Tabs */
QTabBar{ font-size: 11pt; }
MyTabBar{ font-size: 12pt; }

/* Context Menu & Menu Bar */
QMenu, QMenuBar{ font-size: 12pt; }

/* List & Tree Views */
QListView{ font-size: 12pt; }
QTreeView{ font-size: 12pt; }

/* Folders Tree */
QDockWidget > QTreeView{ font-size: 12pt; }
and I cleared style_sheet_win.qss.

NOW the fonts are larger :-) I am almost at the goal :-)
In addition, I would like to have also a larger font for "thumbnails and labels".
What do I have to modify or add for that?

Best Regards, Andreas
