There doesn't seem any way that this Master Mixer can be enlarged, and I've even asked on the Reaper forum, but no replies.
Anyone else have this problem?
Not sure I've grasped what you mean. But you can stretch the meter to the full height. You can't stretch it horizontally, AFAIK, though. But of course you can choose/design a different Theme if you want to. Might be worth looking at some, since some of them have rather clearer/crisper labels on the meters...
This promted me to experiment a bit today. First, you want to make sure yuo've right-clicked on the mixer and unticked the default 'Show multiple rows of tracks when size permits'. Then try going to Options/Layouts/Master Mixer Panel... and experimenting with those. The Large option might improve things...
Finally, you can edit the theme using 'WALTER'. It isn't generally for the faint-hearted, but it's actually pretty easy to edit the meter text colours if you do a little reading... basically, each colour is given three (or more, but we're only concerned with the first three here) numbers, which are codes for the RGB colour. You can figure them out here: https://www.rapidtables.com/web/color/RGB_Color.html
though if you want plain white, set them all to 255 255 255. There's a great guide to theme editing by the House of White Tie (who do a gorgeous looking GUI): http://www.houseofwhitetie.com/reaper/walter_themers_guide.pdf
For example, it ook me about an hour to figure all this out and adapt the default theme to give me this master mixer channel... It could use some work still, but it this the sort of thing you meant?
