fonts should scale with the illume default profile - according to DPI. making
the fonts bigger will simply reduce the amount you can read. fonts on the
keyboard itself are not relevant as it fuzzy-matches anything nearby. the word
suggestions already have little enough space as-is... but you can play with a
custom scaling factor for e's ui - u'll need a restart for it to fully take
effect (restart of just e). but this will in general scale everything that is
scaleable. other than that the theme very much has a hand in setting the base
font sizes (relative to eachother) and the suggestions font size is the same
standard size used in all buttons/labels etc. etc.
