Game Font

I was wondering if there is a way to set the game font to all be the same without on every toon have to goto Interface>addons>nUI then changeing both fonts one at a time.

I was told earlier how to change the preset chat font from the standard I would like to change the HUD and indicator fonts one time so every toon i log on has the same font setup.

This one is a little off the font, but is there a way to set the default HUD space to 500 instead of the normal 400?


Thanks in advance for any help with this setup.

Does it change font globally, or just for that character? They're looking for a global font change.

Saves adding a new addon :P

The link Yhor posted shows a way to make a global change without adding another addon just for that purpose. I've been using that very method for many years. Very easy to do and requires no updating. It just simply works.

It gives the global change the OP appears to be after without it being tied to any addon. Its just a font folder in the main wow directory.

You can change nui's font for every character by going to nui>main>localization.lua go down till you see all the font paths and comment out the ones you don't want using -- at the beginning of the line, and deleting those from the one you do want. You can also add any font you want by downloading it and saving it in nui>layouts>default>fonts. then simply add a line to the localization file specifying your new font
Example: you'll notice I added the Morpheus font in mine
Code:
nUI_L = {};
nUI_Locale = GetLocale(); 
        
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\ABF.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Accidental Presidency.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Adventure.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Bazooka.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Emblem.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Enigma__2.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Tw_Cen_MT_Bold.ttf";
    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\MORPHEUS.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\VeraSe.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font1"] = "Fonts\\ARIALN.TTF";
        
        nUI_L["font2"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\MORPHEUS.ttf";
--    nUI_L["font2"] = "Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF";
--    nUI_L["font2"] = "Interface\\AddOns\\nUI\\Layouts\\Default\\Fonts\\Emblem.ttf";

Glad you got your font on!



(I can't find the movie quote where I heard "get your 'funk' on", but pun was intended!)

I think Malsumis's Font Changer compliments nUI extremely well. It helps to make the rest of the fonts match. This is merely an easier way to create the above mentioned Font folder in the games root directory.

I love finding new WoW addons/tools to play with. I think nUI is by far the coolest one though!
