Default Larger fonts in Actions, FX prefs etc windows

Hi. Could we have larger fonts (or a way of adjusting them) please in things like the actions window, Add FX, Prefs....

They're very small for us older users, even with windows / UI scaling.

There's a post about this here:

https://forum.cockos.com/showthread....43#post2319543

Thanks :-)

A size setting for all fonts would be very nice indeed! I don't have a good vision either and many times struggle to read..

+1000 Right now, there is no way to adjust all font sizes. And just adjusting individual font sizes is very difficult and time consuming - even for experienced users.

Would really appreciate the option. Trying to read fonts on a large screen with average-below average vision is VERY straining.

+1 for larger fonts...

+100 for adjustable fonts.

I haven't been this excited since True Type fonts came out 100 years ago.

The only negative (For me) is how ridiculously freaking tiny the Reaper FX/Media/Preferences menus are. I literally have to move closer just to browse plugins, change buffer sizes, or sample rates.

To be in my sweet spot (About 6 feet away from a 32 inch monitor and NOT be able to clearly read (Nor scale) the Reaper menu font is a big downer.

I literally have to move closer just to browse plugins, change buffer sizes, or sample rates.

The ability to change/ scale menu font would be an long overdue relief.

Not only the older folks but also us with "eye-diseases/weaknesses" are having a hard time navigation inside of reaper.

If you are in windows, Magnifier comes in handy and lets you click normally while magnified..

%windir%\system32\magnify.exe

It does! discovered that a few years ago. Unfortunately it's a bit blurry on my setup but way better than straining :-)

Still hoping the devs will change the text size natively though :-)

Can I ask what theme / font you're using here? Really like it!

I would add not only fontsize but the font and font style too.

Some may be able to read serifed fonts better, others need bold, others prefer monotyped fonts who are better to read for small letters like in words like "ill".

Default ReaperReaders

This forum post may help some of the people in this thread. It's an extension that allows you to adjust the normally unconfigurable system font:

https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=241546

That said, in my opinion it would be ideal to have this addressed in the actual DAW and not by an extension. I have my Media Explorer set to the side Docker and the Tempo Match, Pitch, Rate and Volume UI overlap significantly in the bottom panel. I've noticed floating FX window has similar but more mild issues, too, when using this extension. It would be great to see an official feature added that smooths the whole experience out and integrates it into the preferences.

Hello, i'm also interested in larger fonts availability for the mixer, for a laptop live situation where things need to be super readable.
