Change Font Size in Menu

Postby spandey » Sun Aug 12, 2012 8:05 am

I have installed XFCE 13 64 bit just now. How do I change the Font size in Menu as it too small for me?

This will change the size of the text in the menu, but it also changes the text size in the panel buttons as well:
Menu > Settings > Appearance > Fonts > Default Font

As far as I can see, you can't easily change just the menu text size on its own.

This changes the icon size of the menu items and as a result increases the overall space of the menu also - if that's what you were after :?:

Desktop: C2D E6400 / Asus P5LD2SE / 2GB ram / Asus GeForce 210 / 320GB (WinXP) & 1TB (Mint - various)
Laptop: Asus A53E-SX1455V - i5 2450M / 4GB ram / Intel HD 3000 / 500GB (Win7/Mint 17.3 Cinnamon)

Not the same thing but...

I like some others make a defacto menu using a launcher to 'application Finder' (can change launcher icon easy in Xfce) :wink: and alcarte menu editor can change somethings.
Xfce 4.10 rewrote it, has more preferences/settings now.

I've even seen some distros that use it and chucked the cascading menu list.
