Making fonts larger so old men can read



  • Ok, little odd topic here, but I have to ask. I can’t find how to make the fonts larger so I can view them more easily. I looked at all the preferences and couldn’t see anything about font size. I don’t want to change the native format of the text I’m viewing, just want to view it easier! Thanks!.

    Let look at Settings -> Style Configurator

    Neither of file types supported by Notepad++ have font-related properties. All font names, sizes, styles used by Notepad++ are for viewing only, and they are never stored in the files.

    To be a bit more specific, these might be the settings you’ll want to experiment with:

    Also: You can temporarily change the size of text by pointing your mouse at the window, holding the Ctrl key, and scrolling the mouse wheel in either direction.

    This shows you have a basic misunderstanding about what text editing is and what a text editor does. @zanud clarifies nicely with:

    (None) of file types supported by Notepad++ have font-related properties. All font names, sizes, styles used by Notepad++ are for viewing only, and they are never stored in the files.
