Font Size, Face & Colour
« on: December 02, 2007, 02:04:42 AM »
Option to change font size and colour in UI, for accessibility if nothing else. :)

Edit: if toolbar etc. are too fiddly, font size for search results at least would be nice, a la Newsleecher. ;)

Agreed, I believe a different font would go a long way.

Especially coupled with the prettier icons.

Not yet, this is still an open request.  If it's implemented, Rdl will post a message and lock the thread, then add the info to the changelog.

+1 on this request..
I've changed under Settings, Advanced, dpi and under Appearance, Font size, Large Fonts and neither cause altbinz fonts to get bigger.
Rdl could you please add so fonts in the UI can be changed.

+another with a HTPC having readability issues here.

DPI scaling on Win7 works to a degree, but there's two insanely annoying things that make it unusable..

1)The amount of scaling you need to use to make it readable for me (190% if I remember correctly) makes the setup dialogue window size too big so that the OK/Cancel/etc buttons are beyond reach off screen, meaning you have to change dpi back to normal just to change any settings (or restart alt.binz with scaling turned off)

2)With dpi scaling and alt.binz run at system startup it ignores the scaling setting on first run, meaning you have to close alt.binz and restart for the scaling to take effect (although I'm not sure if this may be something wrong with my particular setup?)

use alt.binz on my TV...hard to see the writing sometimes. So any font size changing to make it bigger would be great.

PLZ, it's still a problem.
I use my Laptop, with linux and wine.
I can use a screen magnifier, but there a only really big pixel, i can't read.

Please please, make a theme with bigger fonts or give me a possibility to change font size,

Sabnzb in Browser, STRG+MouseWheel, i can read anything.
I spent a lot of money for AltBinz, but without bigger font, i must change forever to sabnzb.
Im an old man with bad eyes (is this correct speech?)

I am an Admin from a famous NZB listing site, since years is my answer "AltBinz". I think, i must change this to "sabnzbd". Or will you give us at least larger fonts?
