Changing the ingame font

Hi there

Thankyou for designing this fantastic ui. It is almost perfect for me. Just a little question. I have searched around the other posts and can't seem to figure out what I am supposed to do. Download or change the config file.

I find it difficult to see the font that is used in game on all aspects of the ui. How do I change this to Arial Narrow? I have managed to alter the size of it in the config file, but don't really want to mess with anything else.

This is my only issue

Thankyou for your help

Fonts are set at (there are three of them (Normal, Pixel and Blank):

Font sizes for different design elements are set in :

I am not sure what Blank font is for, never changed it.

For Normal I copied the standard Calibri.ttf from Windows folder to
Normal is used for chat window, menu, tooltips, player frames.

For Pixel font I am using pf_ronda_seven.ttf, but I suspect it causes issues with Big Wigs skin because it's not a real 8pt font.
Pixel font is used for on-screen notifications, bottom info bar

P.S. My past post on customizations I had done with the fonts:
