How to make fonts larger?

Postby jenkos » Tue May 18, 2010 8:12 am


I have had a lok through the files in the copy of the "custom" theme directory and found only one file contained reference to "font": rectv.css. Do I just add a line in any section like this "font-size: 2.0em;" in other .css file?



OK, I found that increased font size in the non-silverlight interface.
How do I do it for Silverlight, I find it hard to read from the recliner!!

Glad that you found the font size options in the css skins.

Unfortunately I'm not sure that the fonts can be made larger in the Silverlight version at the moment, but I'll certainly think about a way, unless somebody else has a suggestion for zooming the current version?

Hi Guys,
I thought of a work around - Although it more like Zooming the Page in or out...

Hold down the Ctrl key and then press + or -
Hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel.
Bottom right of IE8 has a Zoom function.

Interesting results when viewing the SilverLight page.

I was going to say that to, but with Silverlight I think it has to be determined in the app itself, am I right here?

maybe you just need to read more and be a good keen observer so that everything would work just as fine as before..we are all beginners in a time or will get used to it don't you worry. 8-)
