Hello.
I know how to change the size of the font I use (Preferences --> Conversation --> Text Formating).
But how can I change the size of the font of the messages I receive ?

Thanks.

go to tools > preferences > skins and under the conversation theme tab uncheck the box that says show message fonts. that worked for me, hope it works for you.

that just disables fonts received from your contacts. you can increase the render size of the message window using common shortcuts for browsers (Ctrl +/-/0/Mouse wheel up/mouse wheel down).

to change *only* the text size of messages requires editing the message styles (preferably creating a variant). luckily the message styles are usually well-designed and this just involves changing a number in a CSS file. Still, it's not exactly "usable", so there might be some enhancements for this in the future if it's feasible.

Can you explain what to change in the CSS? I've been trying various things and I can't find it.

Thanks

I have edited the css messagestyles to force a font size, but the font size of the other person still comes through. As far as I can tell there isn't an override for font size right now.

TechnoCat can you please detail what you have done? It might help me since I want to make my font size 11. As you probably know Digsby doesn't allow odd font sizes, so I can only opt for size 10, which is too small or size 12, which is damn big. big_smile

you can edit everything inside the chatwindow, if you know css. just take a little time to edit a chat-theme/create a new one, and you can do all you want.
