Topic: Serial Monitor Suggestion-Could we please be allowed to change the Font SIZE? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I know this sound silly but could we please be allowed to change the Font size for the Serial Monitor? I know the Arduino IDE allows us to change it's font size for the IDE (I run the IDE around font size 12), but it seems the Serial Monitor font is stuck at 6. Maybe I missed something that lets you change it (If I have please let me know). But it's like I have to get out my 1000X glasses to read anything flashing across the Serial Monitor Window.

-Thanks

Maybe like issue 550.  I filed this bug after helping someone with limited vision get started with Arduino.  Sadly, he just couldn't make use of the serial monitor.

So far this issue hasn't been accepted, not to mention given a milestone.

I submitted a patch to issue 550.  It makes the serial monitor font the same size as the editor font.

You can change the editor font size in the preferences dialog box.

I uploaded another patch to issue 550.  This new patch makes both the serial monitor and console panel (error messages) use the editor font size selected in Preferences.
