How to change Drop-down menu text size?

Hello,

I'm creating a drop-down launcher with 3 container items in it and I'm having trouble trying to set the text size, it look very small, how to setting text size to increase size for menu section? Example: "To Do 1" "To Do 2" "To Do 3" how can I set them increase text size?

Thank you!

Re: How to change Drop-down menu text size?

Hello and welcome.

Assuming the GTK3 version of xfce4-panel (version 4.14 or greater), the following tweak in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css will affect the popup menu font size of multiple launcher widgets:

#launcher-14 window box label { font-size: 12pt; }

...change "-14" to be the actual number of your launcher ID which you can get by hovering over the widget in the Panel Properties > Items tab, as well as the font size that you want.

It's working now that's so cool but what about the icon beside the text?

#launcher-14 window box label { font-size: 12pt; icon-size: 12px; }

adding icon-size: 12px; not working.

"icon-size" is not a valid parameter.

Icon sizing, in Xfce/GTK3, is a complicated matter. There is no easy way that I am aware of to properly size icons. Perhaps the size is limited in xfce4-panel. You could try something like this:

#launcher-14 window box image { -gtk-icon-transform: scale(1.5); }

this will upscale the icon, but unfortunately, it will also blur it.

You can reach the arrow via:

#launcher-1 .toggle

...however, there isn't much you can do with it - it is drawn onto aa button widget. You can change the colour:

#launcher-1 .toggle { color: red; }

...naturally, change the "#launcher-1" to match the ID of the widget.
