How can I change the font size of menus and selection panels in Cura?

What the subject says. At least in Ubuntu, cura is not obeying the system font choices, and just uses whatever tiny fonts are hardwired in the appimage. Is there a workaround?

 

Apparently the people who decided to bundle Cura as an Appimage do not understand the concept that different people have different-sized monitors or different visual acuity.

    Cura is fairly well themeable.

     

    Download this file: https://gist.github.com/fieldOfView/7de3ad07fa06afb821bc0c5fe0b668dc

    Put it in ~./config/cura/4.5/themes/larger-text/theme.json

    Restart Cura

    In the general preferences, select the theme Ultimaker Larger

    Restart Cura again

    Just used this with some modification - it was still a bit small on my monitor. Helped a lot. But, the menu bar text on Windows 10 with a hi-res monitor is still very small. Are there any theme settings for the menu font? I couldn't find one.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
