date font size in task bar

Postby houndhen » Tue Nov 20, 2012 11:03 pm

Mint KDE 13 32 bit.
Figured out how to change font color for clock and then added the date below the time. However, the date font is a lot smaller than the time. Is there a way to increase the font size of the date?
Thanks,
Harold

Hi -
Don't know how to just change the size of the date font alone.
Could try System Settings > Application Appearance > Fonts > Small
Adjusting this setting will make the date font bigger - I'm not sure what else it will affect, though, eg. panel height.

I've also seen that resizing the panel's height can change the font size. I'm not sure how I did it but I have the time on top and a customized Short date on the bottom.
