Cover Browser stylesheet

Hi, I have a quick question, please. I would like to enlarge the text in the Cover Browser pane. I see the html in the book descriptions has a class called "description," but where is the stylesheet to control this?

Sorry if this has been explained elsewhere, but searching has only turned up info on changing the stylesheet for the ebook viewer. Are they perhaps the same?

Thanks!

You cannot control that size.

Le sigh. Thank you for replying. If there's a way to work this into a future release, my dim eyes would certainly appreciate it. Sadly, the book descriptions are practically unusable for me, unless I get really close and squint.

Are you sure you are talking about the Cover Browser (White arrow on Black button)?

Preferences: Look and Feel: Cover Browser: TICK Show cover Browser in separate window. Restart Calibre.

Now the covers can be made full screen height.


Or are you wanting "Book Details"

Select a book: Press I for a slightly bigger window

Thanks again! It was the book descriptions I was trying to read. It turns out I had simply missed a step in changing this in "look and feel." I'd clicked the apply button in the font changer, but had neglected to click the check on the original look and feel pane. My bad!

Kovid, I will definitely remember you again the next time anyone pays me for anything (doesn't happen all that often, alas.) I think Calibre s probably the best supported free software out there.
