How to increase the font size of listfonts output?

The output of listfonts is too tiny to read, even after zooming. I tried using `skinparam dpi` and `scale` options as described here, but both result in parsing error.

I also tried increasing PLANTUML_LIMIT_SIZE, but the output is still the same size. Enclosing the `listfonts` command in <size> tag also doesn't parse (as I expected, but it was worth a try).

How can I increase the font size of the `listfonts` output?

Hello D.,

In conjunction of PLANTUML_LIMIT_SIZE, a possible workaround is to use:

listfonts <size:30>This is a test

Here is a result:

And adjust the PLANTUML_LIMIT_SIZE in order to see the full PNG output.

If that can help,

Thanks, this workaround is helpful. It would be nice if the font name is also of the same size, but this workaround is also good enough.
