Zoom options

Zoom options to change all elements, including text size, spacing, etc.

It would be nice to have some zoom options to change the text size in the desktop application. It could be separate options for the sidebar and the main screen.

Hey folks--now you can zoom in and zoom out of the Desktop app using the View settings in the Toolbar. Thanks for your great idea @OviiiOne!

@user-removed Could we change this to "change size of all elements"? Just changing the text size isn't enough in my opinion and I'm not sure that's what you intended. Zoom also needs to change the size of all elements just like a zoom control in a browser.

I completely agree. I really dislike the new UI because of how spread out everything is, and much prefer a condensed view. I understand the possible need to offer multiple sizes for accessibility, but give a few options from large to condensed.

Marked as new idea and edited the idea a bit according to the comments to apply the zoom also on the other elements. Since we already have an idea for only adjustable text-size here. ;)

Zoom on all elements seems like over-kill to me, but a compact font option is definitely needed for people with many long playlists. I 'lose touch' with my 1000 song+ playlists.

Would also preffer smaller spacing between songs and a smaller font.

This would be great. I really like the look of the current UI but the text is a touch too big and things feel too spaced out. It means you can't really fit a lot on screen. I usually have Spotify open on my second monitor (22") and it feels as though it is scaled for a bigger screen. For comparison: on my 32" main monitor it looks a lot better, but that isn't an ideal place to have the app running and I'm sure the average user isn't using a screen that large.
