Edit the Textstyles.plst in notepad or your text editor of choice, replace all instances of Segoe UI with the font available in windows.
also note that the language folders are abbreviated en=english, fr=french and so on. 1337 :shiftyninja:

what was there to slip under the radar when people were reporting it? that's all we're saying

For whatever reason you seem to think this is the most important and/or only thing being brought to Apple's attention. As I said two times already the OS X team most likely has more pressing issues to attend to.

That's pretty neat since it doesn't involve modding system files. (Y)

So far I must say I'm really loving iTunes 11. The mini player/browser kicks some serious butt. I don't think I could go back.

Hmm... i need to figure out how to set a global hotkey for the mini player search feature.

How would I go about binding control+command+space to the mini browser search globally?

Is there a way to prevent iTunes from syncing particular album artwork with iTunes Match? I have two albums that I know are using the wrong album artwork on iTune's database. But every time I manually replace them with the correct artwork, it's been reverted with the next iTunes Match sync.

Thanks to Aaron Olive's tip I managed to change the iTunes 11 default font to Lucida Grande! Makes the whole thing fit in more with OS X Mountain Lion if you'd ask me. So far I haven't encountered any weird interface issues.

So how to do it?
  • Simply copy /iTunes.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/TextStyles.plist to the desktop
  • Open the file with Xcode
  • Use the Xcode Editor's Find/Replace bar (cmd + F) to replace all instances of "HelveticaNeue" with "LucidaGrande". Be sure not to add a space between "Lucida" and "Grande"
  • Then use the Find/Replace bar to remove all instances of "-Medium" by leaving the replace box empty.
If you have your system language set to something else - let's say Dutch - you'll have to modify TextStyles.plist in the folder Dutch.lproj.

Very nice, will give it a try myself. Probably something we'll have to "fix" on every iTunes update, though.

Luckily it's a one minute job.
