Default I just loaded Rockbox

I just loaded Rock Box on my E260 and was wondering if there is way to increase the size of the text or is there a theme with larger text on it

my vision is not the greatest

As long as you install the font pack (available here or under the "Extras" tab in Rockbox Utility), you can select a larger-sized font in the player's "Font" menu (under "Settings" and then "Theme Settings"). However, doing this alone will likely cause problems for whatever theme you're using, as many WPS' are created with a specific font/font size in mind.

As you suggested, using different theme which already features larger text may be your best course of action. You can view an extensive selection of themes for the e200 series on the Rockbox Themes site here (or in Rockbox Utility). From skimming through it, I'm thinking one of the ClockedWcab themes, Wide Cabbie, BigFont, Redline, Amarok - Large, ReMediaFlo, RetturmBox, or one of the Ultima themes might suit you.

Theres a few ways to do this depending on what you want (database, playlists, etc).

What I like if you're using the folder view is that you can tell rockbox to play from one folder to the next. Then just clicking any song will cause it to play sequentially all your songs, one folder at a time.

Here's how I play all:

I create 4 playlists everytime I update my player with new music.

1. add all songs under "rock" folder to a playlist... save as 'rock'
2. add all songs under "classic rock" folder to the playlist save as 'allrock'
3. add all the rest of the songs except 'rap' folder, save as 'all_norap' (sometimes I'm in the mood to listen to anything but rap)
4. add all songs under "rap" folder, save playlist as 'all'

This whole procedure takes about 1 or 2 minutes to do. And I've got 4 big playlists, including one that has all the songs (which is what you're looking for).

The main thing you need to figure out with rockbox is that holding down the 'select' button brings up the 'context menu'. Go into your files and hold down the select button on a particular song or folder. You will get lots of options of things to do with it. Like holding the select button on the 'rock' folder, and selecting 'playlist' then 'insert' will recursively go through every folder in 'rock' and add all the songs to the dynamic playlist... then that playlist can be saved.

Hope that helps. There's no 'play all' button, but it can be done very easily.
