Edit Default Kindle PW Font Sizes

How can I edit the default kindle PW font sizes? I am looking for some middle ground in font size between two of default sizes. Any help on which files i need to edit or where to start would be appreciated

Thanks, I already have that installed, but I am unsure how to edit the default font sizes. Like there are 9 font sizes, and i want something inbetween font sizes 7 and 8. Any help on adjusting one of them a little?

@mthodmn101: You have a couple of choices:

* If you're running a FW version supported by JBPatch, it has a patch to do just that (tweak the sizes of each step in the Aa menu).

* If you're not, or you just want to tweak a specific font, check the linkfonts/etc/conf.avail/99-tweaks.conf fontconfig shard, there's an example in here to do just that. [The 'live' config directory is actually linkfonts/etc/conf.d, so, move your final config shard there].

FWIW, on my PW, I'm scaling every CFF font by +12%.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">

<!--
        Misc tweaks :)
-->
<fontconfig>
        <!-- Make Crimson 12% bigger -->
        <match target="font">
                <test name="family" compare="eq">
                        <string>Crimson</string>
                </test>
                <!-- So tweak the matrix instead... -->
                <edit name="matrix" mode="assign">
                        <times>
                                <name>matrix</name>
                                <matrix>
                                        <double>1.12</double>
                                        <double>0.0</double>
                                        <double>0.0</double>
                                        <double>1.12</double>
                                </matrix>
                        </times>
                </edit>
        </match>
</fontconfig>

@mthodmn101: Provided you tweaked it to match on the actual font family you want to modify, and not Crimson/Crimson text like my examples, and it still has unix line-endings, yes.

@kaznelson: Ha! Thanks, I remembered this, but only found the K3/K4 version in my quick search to write post #4, so I thought I'd imagined the K5 version... >_<"
