Changing the font size in the source files window for a student with a disability

Hello I can't find how to increase the size of the font in the source files window. I think that this software could be very helpful for scholars with dyspraxia but, a lot of them will have troubles to read the text that they will type in the Source files window because the letters are not large enough. Is there a way to increase the font size in this specific window ? Thanks for your help Caroline

To increase/reduce font size for source files you can use next ways:
  1. Keep Ctlr key and roll mouse wheel.
  2. Keys such as Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- (they may require to keep also Shift or not)
  3. Size parameter in "Font for displaying source text" section of "Source/Script" tab of "Editing Settings" dialog which may be opened from "Options" program menu.
NOTE: 1-2 ways are widely used standard.

Also, you can control text colors in
Options / Source Text Colors ... - TeXWord
Options / Highlighting Colors/Modes ... - Centaur.

Well tuned colors also may simplify reading text.

Right now, the step size for font goes with 5. Can you introduce finer step size like 2 or even just 1? For a 15' MacBook Pro, a font size of 15 is a bit too small and 20 is a bit too large.

Look up some past messages on this forum by myself and Basil. It explains how to make the changes of fonts more fine grained.

Unfortunately, under some versions of OSX steps must be multiply by 5.
