Have you tried Settings -> Editor -> General settings -> Editor settings -> Font -> Choose?

i am afraid, but you can't change the font size of the settings pages. Maybe over some windows settings, but c::b is not optimized for this, so you will get artifacts. A better solution would be to use the magnidier glass on windows. I think there are also tools on linux for this...

I am here for the same reason.
How the editor font can increase its size globally.

So, it is not so much friendly, this option? Yes because it is hidden beside of font selection and all users, eye scan settings for numbers 8, 10, 12 (which is the size).

It is something which need change? I don't think so.
After 2 eye scans of all settings, I google "How to change codeblock editor font size" and I am here!

chameleon: What are you talking about? I don't understand. The option I've described controls the font size in the editor. Have you tried it? Does it work?
