To change the font sizes in MediaPortal look in the Skin folder and locate the fonts.xml file.

This file contains the font definitions used by the skin. For example:

  • C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Blue3wide\fonts.xml

Beware

Changes to fonts are:

  • skin wide, i.e. all MediaPortal screens text will change. This can cause text to overflow or labels to be cut short.
  • skin specific, so you need to complete this change for the skin you're using.
  • overwritten when you
    • reinstall MediaPortal.
    • install an SVN version of MediaPortal
    • reinstall a skin

Note: Generally it is much wiser to find a skin that supports your font size rather than changing the font size in a skin that does not really support it.  Several skins now support multiple font sizes.

Fonts.xml

A font section looks like this:

<font>
  <name>font10</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>10</height>
</font>

The line you're interested in is the <height> line, just change this value to something else to increase or decrease the size as required. e.g. change font10 to this:

<font>
  <name>font10</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>14</height>
</font>

This will increase all text using the font name 'font10'  from 10 points to 14 points.

Repeat this for each font size you want to change.

<font>
  <name>font10</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>14</height>
</font>
<font>
  <name>font12</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>16</height>
</font>
<font>
  <name>font13</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>17</height>
</font>
<font>
  <name>font14</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>18</height>
</font>
<font>
  <name>font16</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>20</height>
</font>
<font>
  <name>font18</name>
  <filename>Arial</filename>
  <height>24</height>
</font>

Once you've completed this save your fonts.xml file.

Re-Cache your fonts

MediaPortal caches fonts in each skin, so for your changes to take effect you have to re-cache. You do this by deleting the \fonts\ folder in the Cache folder, e.g.

  • C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Cache\Blue3wide\fonts\

MediaPortal will then re-cache the fonts at the next startup using your modified sizes.
