While working on a new skin, I am running into an old, and much feared foe: fonts in the player panel.

Before narrowing it down and addressing the specific issue I am encountering (which I hope I am able to figure out myself) , I'll start with a more simple question that confuses me.

After having fooled around with different font types and sizes for the player panel, I untick 'custom font' for the main player.
I would expect it then to return to some MusicBee default font type/size.

But it looks like it doesn't.
Left is my skin-in-progress, Right is MB's default skin.
Both have the same setting for the font in the player panel, and yet they are different.
What influences this?

When the "SlimIcons" skin setting is used, the default font is Regular rather than Bold.
It looks like the Tabs(1) settings UI should be enhanced to also reflect that

Interesting, thnx.
I wasn't expecting that 'icon' settings were influencing fonts.
At the moment I am not sure I can grasp if this is logical/sensible.
It might indeed make sense for the end-user though.
Food for thought. I'll be back. (or not)
