Thanks!

=================================

Edit Below: This is what I've tried...

=================================

Code:
local _, Loc = ...;

Imp = CreateFrame('Frame', nil, UIParent);

ImpFont = 'Interface\\AddOns\\ImprovedBlizzardUI\\media\\impfont.ttf';

-- Build the On Screen Display
Imp_OSD = CreateFrame('Frame', nil, UIParent);
Imp_OSD.text = Imp_OSD:CreateFontString(nil, 'OVERLAY', 'GameFontNormal');
Imp_OSD:SetWidth(32);
Imp_OSD:SetHeight(32);
Imp_OSD:SetFrameStrata('BACKGROUND');
Imp_OSD:SetPoint('CENTER', 0, 75);
Imp_OSD.text:SetPoint('CENTER', 0, 0);
Imp_OSD.text:SetFont(ImpFont, 26, 'OUTLINE');
Imp_OSD.hidden = true;
Imp_OSD.fadeTimer = nil;
I tried changing:

ImpFont = 'Interface\\AddOns\\ImprovedBlizzardUI\\media\\impfont.ttf';

to

ImpFont = 'Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF';

and changing...

Imp_OSD.text:SetFont(ImpFont, 26, 'OUTLINE');

to

Imp_OSD.text:SetFont(FRITZQT__.TTF, 26, 'OUTLINE');

But that didn't seem to work out the way I anticipated. It doubled my bars giving me both the original and the improved blizzard bars. Can you please lay out exact what one would need to change? I've tried basing it off your GITHUB posts, but clearly I'm inept because I just keep breaking it.

Thank you!
There is a font slider in the options under both general options and minimap, to change the rest of the UI you'd probably need a different addon, as this doesn't seem to cover some of the fonts. Figured this out by putting a completely different font set in the main folder that's all serif fonts. The small fonts are all still serif, instead of the sans serif font that the UI comes with. The only one I knew that did this was clearfont2 which was abandoned a looooooong time ago and hasn't worked for multiple expansions but Phanx recently made one based on it the end result of using both mods combined is this, you can see where the blizzard fonts are cause they're all serif still.

But I don't find the "mini map menu"
Thanks!
Right click in the minimap, then you will get an extra menu where you can swap bags etc.

It would be nice if the player frame could have a OOC opacity slider.

As You see on the picture, the chat is default WoW one, checked in settings of the addon and Styling chat is ticked...

From that screenshot, that chat does not look like the default wow chat. It's the stylized chat with this addon.
