Hi folks,

I have requested this feature a couple of times to Karafun - they have always been very responsive but I think will need to hear from many more before they might code this in.

I find the text size they use throughout the program to be so tiny on my laptop - lists on the side, search results list, etc., and there is no way to increase that. I often have a singer look through a list of songs from a band and it is very hard for them to see as well as the font is so small.

OK I am getting older and too :shock:

If you use Karafun and are also interested in this feature please contact them at support@karafun.com.

thanks,

DJ Willie :)

Windows 10 allows you to change the scaling of what’s displayed on screen.
Older versions of Windows allowed you to control scaling in the form of a DPI, or dots-per-inch, setting.
CTRL+ and CTRL- work in some apps, like email and web browsers, but not all of Windows.

First of all, in the post above by Lonman, he has stated that he has no interest in Karafun. Follow his example. You shouldn't have an interest in it either. We don't know why he has no interest in it but that's not important. If you can read between the lines, what he's basically saying is that Karafun is not the preferred software of karaoke hosts. It is not very professional.

Now, I would have to agree with the Lonster. He usually knows about these things. So, back to you...

There is some software that does indeed allow you to change the font size within the program itself. You can make it as large or as small as you would like. CompuHost is one of the programs that allows this.

Now, with that said... if you are a professional KJ, you should be embarrassed that you're using Karafun to run your shows. I am sure I speak for the rest of the members of this group when I say, you should immediately upgrade your hosting software. I'm not sure if Karma does what you want but Karma is also a really good program... and Bob (he's the boss) will put it in if it's not in already.

**Hint** If you're going to ask Bob to do something for you, the best way for him to comply would be to send him a little gift to show your appreciation. Maybe a nice bottle of wine or something.

But hey, don't thank me... just too happy to help.

Karma has had a scalable font size control for years. You have to switch its view ON to see it, but it's there.
