EditBox Font Improver

Summary

The addon lets you set your custom font, font size and style for the edit boxes of:

  • Blizz’s macro frame
  • M6
  • OPie (the box to write a custom macro for a button)
  • WowLua (output and edit box)

The main point is that in these macro/script edit boxes we want a clean, monospaced font, and not Friz Quadrata, Arial Narrow, or similar nonsense.

Usage

First-time setup

Before using the addon the first time, you have to set the path to your desired font in the main.lua file of the addon.

If you use SharedMedia, then your fonts will usually be in…

  • Interface/AddOns/SharedMedia/fonts/ or
  • Interface/AddOns/SharedMedia_MyMedia/

If not, anything inside the client folder should be accessible, for example in World of Warcraft/_retail_/Fonts/ or World of Warcraft/_retail_/Interface/MyNewFontFolder/.
The path then would be Fonts/myfont.ttf or Interface/MyNewFontFolder/myfont.ttf.

You can also set font size and font flags in main.lua. You have more instructions there.

Adding more addons

By default, the addon changes the font only of the addons I am using (see above). If you have another addon with an unsuitable font in the edit box, you can try to add the frame to the list. Find more instructions in main.lua.
