Today in Global Chat, several folks were asking
if Foldit fonts can be resized or changed to
fixed-width fonts like Courier. I dug up the
Feedbacks below:


Let Foldit zoom like in Internet Explorer 8

and talked some about cmp-resources-*/resources/fonts,
macro/gui/flyout_font_size in options.txt,
and how Recipe name sizes can be changed in
the Cookbook, but these didn't feel like
very satisfactory answers.

Does anyone know how to change font sizes or
font types within Foldit? It would sure be nice
if there were an easy way to change them.
