    You can set any font and size you want in your skin.ini :

    Original CdrSkull skin.ini :

    #FAV / HIST LIST
    favsgo =010,020,145,065
    favscancel =010,090,145,065
    favsdelete =010,160,145,065
    favlist =189,35,569,527
    favspgup =40,240,80,95
    favsup =40,335,80,70
    favsdown =40,410,80,70
    favspgdown =40,485,80,95

    My skin (french variation of Spaghetti's one)

    #FAV / HIST LIST
    favslistfont =Arial,20
    favsgo =643,007,150,045
    favsdelete =643,058,150,045
    favscancel =643,105,150,045
    favlist =070,005,550,557
    favspgup =5,7,45,45
    favsup =5,58,45,45
    favsdown =5,464,45,45
    favspgdown =5,515,45,45

    In original, Cdr forgot this param : favslistfont

      The ability to change the font size / type was added after I released the skin which is why its not there.. if its not present it just uses the default set within FD itself.

          Hi, Can I specify the font CharSet also? or maybe you can make it use DEFAULT_CHARSET?
          would save the hassle of creating a fontsubstitue registry.

              Read !

              favslistfont =Arial,20
              so you can specify any charset and any width you want.

                I know I can specify any charset and any width I want, but I also whant to select charset:
                Every font in windows has beside a name,size bold/italic what is called 'charset' e.g:ANSI_CHARSET,GREEK_CHARSET,TURKISH_CHARSET,HEB REW_CHARSET etc
                (you can read the lfCharSet section at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...ntext_1wmq.asp)

                FreeDrive uses ANSI_CHARSET.
                If you try to print greek characters for example with ANSI_CHARSET, it will display meaningless gibrish instead of greek.
                If you specify DEFAULTI_CHARSET, windows will pick the correct charset you specified at the regional settings control panel.

                so my Q is: Can I specify a charset also?
