Although you can resize the fonts under Tools|Settings (F7 shortcut), you have to edit a configuration file to increase the space (literally pixels) between the tab and staff lines. Find this file:

C:Documents and Settings.tuxguitar-1.2config.properties

Use Notepad or Wordpad to add these two lines.


tab.line-spacing=20
score.line-spacing=20

I think someone mentioned that the default values were 8, so mess around. What works depends on your display resolution/size and your eye-sight! I'm using 1024 x 768 on a 42" TV, but I'm almost 60. (Don't make fun of the handicapped!)

I also found it useful to get rid of most of those tool bars at the top again via Tools|Settings (F7 shortcut). That will allow for a larger work area.

Enjoy!

Typo in file path/name due to auto-censor!

C:[backslash]Documents and Settings.tuxguitar-1.2[backslash]config.properties

Go figure!
