How to increase font size in search result window

  • Is it possible to increase the font size in the find result panel?

  • @crystalfp

    Sure. Put your mouse cursor in the Find result panel and hold the Ctrl key while scrolling the mouse wheel–you do have a wheel mouse, don’t you? (Not sure how you can accomplish this without one!)

  • Hello, @crystalfp, @scott-sumner and All,

    Very easily with the usual shortcuts : Ctrl and the + / - keys, on the numeric keypad !

    And, of course, the default Ctrl + / shortcut restores the default zoom value

    Best Regards,


  • Hello @guy038 ,

    I tried your keyboard advice (after clicking inside the Find result window to give it input focus), but I get no zoom-in or zoom-out behavior. Of course your advice works perfectly well when an editor tab has input focus…

  • @Scott-Sumner,

    Like @guy038, I was able to get the Ctrl +, Ctrl -, and Ctrl / to work in the Find result window.

  • Hi, @crystalfp, @scott-sumner, @peterjones and All,

    Very strange, indeed !? I, even, succeeded to have three different levels of zoom :

    • A first one, for files in the main view

    • A second one, for tabs in the secondary view

    • A third one for the Find result panel

    Quite nice, isn’t it !

    Moreover, instead of the keyboard shortcuts, you can use the alternate method : Ctrl + an upwards/downwards move of the mouse wheel ;-))

    Here is my Debug Info :

    Scott, I really don’t see where is the problem !

    I tried a different keyboard and now the numpad shortcuts are working for the Find result panel.

    While I was experimenting I noticed that even if I change the key assignment to SCI_ZOOMIN, SCI_ZOOMOUT, and SCI_SETZOOM in the Shortcut Mapper, only the original numpad shortcuts work in the Find result panel. I’m not surprised by this, just something to note…

    Since I have a wheel on my mouse, I will just continue changing the zoom level in and out (of the two views and the find-result panel) that way. :-)
