Styling Calendar

You can choose calendar font and its size in Preferences, as on the screenshot above. Apart from this, World Clock does not provide a way to style calendar elements in its user interface. However, you can do some manual tweaking in username:calendar section of your %APPDATA%\Anuko\World Clock\world_clock.ini file (for Windows 7 this path resolves to C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Anuko\World Clock\world_clock.ini).
