Its not practicable to apply the changes made by this extension into the ACP as a 110% increase in the main forum would give something like a 220% increase in the ACP. however there is an easy work around. Download and unzip the attached, disable the Large Font extension, upload the new folders and file to the ext directory of your board and enable the extension.

The screenshot below shows the default change that this addon makes.

You can change the size be editing the one file that is in the largefont_admin_panel download

OPEN

acp_overall_header_stylesheets_after.html

FIND AND CHANGE

100%

SAVE>UPLOAD>PURGE CACHE

As you can see, 100% makes the ACP font increase by about 50%. The only downside of this method is that the font size is increased for ALL admins, but I don't think this is likely to be a problem.

Please let me know how you get on.

Thanks it works, ACP font look bigger now.

One thing I notice though in the UCP, when the font size get bigger, all the bold letters look so fat as if all the letters were stretched horizontally.

That is the fat letters I'm talking about. They look fat compares to any bold letter on the forum.

I see what you mean now. I thought you were saying that the letters had been stretched.

What you see is correct. Those letters are large and bold to start with, so making them larger also makes them 'bolder' (if you increase the size of a letter by a % you will also increase its 'boldness' by the same %)
