Change tool tip (bubble help) to larger font size in QuarkXP

Hi all,
I isolated the tip from a discussion in the main forum, thanks jlake for bring this up.

As QuarkXPress 10 is a Cocoa app you can chaneg tool tips by modifying a plist. That might have side effects though.I just tried it and interestingly enough not only the bubble help got larger, also the tabs of the measurement palette did. So I guess that's even a welcome side effect? Screenshots:
Default look:

As modifying a plist can screw things up, I am a bit hesitant to post this tip in detail here. If you are interested, please send me an email using the contact button above this post.
