Hi there,

for my movies I use the fantastic Multiplex/Multiplex view (latest Neon SVN) but it seems I'm getting old: have difficulties to read the plot description in the middle of the screen. Oo

Any hint where and how I could increase the font size a bit (only for this part of the screen)?

Thanks!

Hi,

Having not found the answer on the forums, I did my own search. You need to modify the file Viewtype_Multiplex.xml which is located in addons\skin.neon\720p\

You can open it with any text editor (I used notepad++), look for "plot" (without quotes!). There will be 4 instances of plot found in that file:
Line 113: <label>$INFO[Container(588).ListItem.PlotOutline]</label>
Line 318: <label>$INFO[ListItem.Plot]</label>
Line 326: <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(extrathumbs) + IsEmpty(ListItem.Plot)</visible>
Line 331: <label>$INFO[ListItem.PlotOutline]</label>


there's a <font> tag closeby to these items, I found that changing it to
<font>Font_Neon_34</font> worked nice.

You can change the font size of the other components too : e.g. "direct by" label and the name of the director. I changed these other font sizes too to and changed their distance a bit to make it all easier on the eyes.

Remember to restart XBMC to see the changes.

If you like I can upload my modified file so you can replace yours (after first backing it up of course). Smile
