Default Need larger fonts

I'm trying to play on a laptop, 15.6", 1920x1080 and the fonts in the UI are too small to read without straining my eyes. Is there a UI with fonts about the size of, say, /chatfontsize 3 or 4?

in the options menu, you can change what default font it uses, perhaps try going through the list to see if there is one that is better and clearer.

the problem with the way they set up the xml files is that each object displaying information has a font tag, that determines the size, so youd have to go adn changed alll those lines through every xml file

this could be done with some find and replace, but then the text might not fit and the ui would maybe not display the information correct or all garbled.

I was mostly hoping somebody could point me at one that uses larger fonts. I haven't played since Scars of Velious came out and at this point I'm not picky about details of the UI as long as I can read the text.

Definitely not. If you reread the OP, you'll see that I use that command as a reference for the font size I need LOL

i was thinking is there any specific windows that you want larger fonts on, or is it generally all of them?

cause i was thinking of making a super minimalistic ui, but only edit the playerwindow, group window, target, targetoftarget, extended target and hotbuttons 1 window.

and possibly the chatwindow, and buffwindow and aura window. if i can figure out how i want them.

they would all be custom,, the rest of the windows would be default.

Generally all of them. Essentially scaling the entire UI up slightly. If the UI were scalable and the chat windows had the ability to be docked as tabs in one window, I could very easily work with it.
