    That probably won't work, if you want to be able to pick the fonts you want from in-game you need to register them with SharedMedia. That goes for any media such as statusbars, borders, sounds etc. I'd personally just replace the font you want with one in the media folder of ElvUI. Just make sure to name your new font the same as the one you replaced.

    Literally just did exactly that. Assumed it wouldn't just "work" if i dropped it in so i replaced one in there with the one i wanted, renamed of course!

    Was not sure it would work I just suggested it because my Fonts folder is where I can find the font which I use for my entire UI (Skurri). Evidently there is more to it than copying and pasting into it hehe.

    No problem!
    Resize it all to 8 and give it a monochrome outline

    Dump the Icons folder in your Interface folder. This will give all of your icons a nice, square, 1pixel border

    EDIT: Tried to find an updated version on PA5 for you but it seems it does not exist any more which is strange...
    Anywho, Algot has sorted it for you below me :P

    Can't seem to find it either, but I've had it for a few months (from curse client). Anyway here's a link from the version I have (5.0 RC3):

    This is where I have gotten to so far, gonna take a day or 2 and probably a raid to iron out all the little bits that i haven't finished tweaking yet

    Damn stancebar keeps resizing itself
    QQ
    Not happy with tooltip/partyframes at the moment ><

    Looks great! You should make the player frame the same size as the actionbar above it (My player frame is 214 wide and my target+focus frames are 220)
    But yeah, great job. Hope you're happy with it

    Gonna be tweaking sizes and stuff over the next day or so, just want to get all the major stuff done, raid/party frames/tooltip/PA are up next
    I'm pretty happy now it actually resembles yours :P
    Only problem I'm having at the moment is the action bars resizing themselves if i /reload or relog

    Mine!

    Brewmaster / raid: http://i.imgur.com/DGvLf.jpg
    Windwalker / training dummy: http://i.imgur.com/iaOFx.jpg

    Base is RealUI (from WoWInterface), but I've done tons of edits (obviously..). What I'd really love is for some addon to fix the Blizzard boss frames since Pitbull doesn't have that functionality.

    Lissa, you could try to replace Pitbull with Shadowed Unit Frames. It shouldn't take all too long to duplicate the looks of your current frames, and Shadowed has built-in boss frames.

    Personally I like Shadowed more, it just feels a lot easier to play around in the menu.

    Question, if a font is too big or too slim/small, is there a way to deal with it other than increasing and decreasing sizes? because that doesn't make it a much better fit tbh.
    It doesn't seem to be crisp with a lot of fonts, and sometimes the leading is an issue.

    If you're using pixel fonts they need to be an exact size, or multiples of that size. 8, 16 etc. Monochrome helps too.

    I think.

    Stuf Unit Frames has that functionality.
