Bento with large font? - Or others?

Hi.

Is there anything like Bento but with a larger global font?

I already tried scaling the skin and it just looks complete rubbish.

I also tried "1010 Fullscreen" and it's nice but I can't use it because it's missing the url bar.

Hmm... I think there was a thread asking something similar here, but it could´ve been in skinconsortium.com (which is down right now).

Basically the short answer is that what you are looking for may be found in:
Preferences -> Skins -> Modern Skins -> Font rendering.

and

Preferences -> Playlist -> (changing) "Playlist font size, in pixels:"


Have you tried with these settings?

I did try to alter the Playlist fontsize setting and it does work.

But it doesn't matter if i can not increase the other font sizes and I don't understand how to do the first part.
How hard would it be make a configuration window for fonts like this?:

Global; Font: [Verdana] Size: [11]
Songticker; Font: [Arial] Size: [9]
Playlist; Font: [Impact] Size: [10]
etc..

You have 2 ways to do (each does different things):

1 - Modify LISTS fonts:
- Clic on a list (ie playlist)
- Press ctrl. and "+" or "-" to increase and decrease text size.

2 - Modify OTHER fonts you see on a skin:
- Go to Preferences -> Skins -> Modern Skins -> Font rendering: Make sure "Use skin font mapper" is on.
- There, go to Preferences -> Skins -> Modern Skins -> Font rendering -> Configure skin font mapping.
- There, in "Map font" (bottom/left) you can choose which font of the specific skin (of all skins) should be change for which other and at which size ("Into:"). Play a little with it, the first names on the list are the different fonts used in the skin (ie in bento, player.bitmap.nums changes the track´s time -at top / left-). With "New" you add a new parameter and with "set" you modify the selected one.

Tell me how it went.
