Resizing a custom UI...

I am currently usingBlacksensUI1280x800 and I really like it, but a lot of the text is too small to read. I, along with two other commenters, posted this in the comment section but have yet to get a response from the author. Does anyone know how you can increase the size of a custom UI without completely messing up the layout? I was able to increase the font size of both Fubar and Tic Tac, and that has helped a lot, but there are still quite a few windows which are difficult to read, like my character sheet, quest log, etc.

Thanks in advance.

not 100% sure but in the video settings there is something about resizing your ui.

Yeah, I tried that. It totally messed up the ui, as it didn't scale everything, so I had to put it back to its original setting.

if you want to resize only default blizzard ui elements i recommend:

MoveAnything

If what you need to resize is an addon, be sure to look for a resize option in the addons GUI, that is all i can help with.

Oh, and MoveAnything works perfectly even tho it is out of date.

I had a problem like this, My whole UI is set at a .75 scale but most of the addons out there use a default scale of 1, and many don't have options to change the scale of certain things, such as Inspect doesn't allow changing the size of the Inspect frame, many of the mail addons don't resize the mailbox frame . . . so I downloaded "Hack" and on one page I put in my scale numbers for each frame I could find, a simple list

BankFrame:SetScale(.75);
MailFrame:SetScale(.75);
CharacterModelFrame:SetScale(.75);

now all my stuff is sized right upon llogging in, (hack has a feature to run the code on load)

Great program, I recommend it to anyone who does custom UI's or addon development

Thanks both of you. Both of those programs sound like good options. :-) I'll be sure to check them out tomorrow.
