Default New REAPER Extension for Windows for changing Font Size at normally impossible places

A Windows REAPER Extension which globally alters all the REAPER Font Sizes — in places where it’s normally impossible. Like the Font Sizes for the Media Explorer Items, Preferences, Actions, FX Browser, Stock Reaper Plugin’s, etc.

Technically, it works by intercepting the windows system calls (for REAPER only) that are used to create fonts. Then overwrites whatever REAPER is requesting with the sizes we want.

When the extension is installed with REAPER, it makes the font just slightttlllyyy bigger everywhere by default -- making things much easier thing to read, everywhere, out-of-the-box, with no additional configuration needed. Additionally, several “Actions” become available to adjust the font, font size, in case you want some stronger or classier REAPER Readers.



Never squint at your screen ever again



There are up to 4 configurable fonts you can switch between via REAPER Actions.

p.s. The extension isn't perfect, sometimes there's weirdness when using the allow-list/block-list mode, but, as I get time, I'll iteratively improve and find-tune, and update things!

p.p.s. NO MACOS or LINUX SUPPORT! EVER. I'm sorry in advance! Please no requests for one. I don't use, have, or program for those operating systems! I'm so sorry Thank you!

Also look at the toolbar at top. It scrambled those. I would love to see this work! Thanks for your help.

Hehe. Right back at cha, you seem very skilled yourself based on my lurks :O!

Also, I updated the extension to address the issues you showed me above -- thanks. I also found the extension was making some plugins' fonts look weird -- and some REAPER graphics, so I addressed that as well.
