Hi Sam,

Unfortunately, you can't currently change the size of those fonts. However, it is on my todo list (as well as completely custom strip functions) and should be available in the near future.

One thing you could do is have a look at ggopt, where you can at least change the strip text, if not the size.

Hadley
