Changing font in modern skin

Hello everyone. I'm currently using the winamp modern skin and was wondering how I could change the various fonts in this skin, in aprticular the media library font. I check the xml files and couldnt find anything of use.

Thanks in advance

The media library font is the same as the playlist editor font and can be changed in Preferences --> Playlist. I've always set it to Tahoma size 9. Looks great.

Thanks a lot for the help, Michgelsen. Used your advice and worked great. Much appreciated

Perhaps you know the answer to this - When you select a song in the playlist or media library, I'd like to change the properties of the text, for example, I'd like to make the selected song bold. Do you know how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance

No, sorry, I have no idea how to do that.
The only thing I know about changing that piece of text is how to change its color. I don't know whether that is of any help to you though. You have to search for an xml file called colors.xml or something like that. Unfortunately I don't have Winamp installed on this computer to check for its exact name. Anyway, if you change the value of this color: <color id="wasabi.list.text.current" (...) />, that will effect the color of the currently playing playlist entry. I don't know what your goal is however, so this might just be totally not what you're looking for.

I'll borrow this thread for another font problem:

I'm making my first skin, and want a cool font for displaying songInfo. So I've dragged some ttf files from my font folder to my skin folder to test them out, by setting the font-property to the path of the file.
But I can only get about half the fonts workin!
Really wierd.I'm sure I've got the path and filname correct.
Does winamp block certain fonts or what's the deal??
