Python shell font size


Is there any way please to shrink the size of the font inside the console? It's just that the font is bigger than Kenneth's and I have words covering two lines.

Here's a snapshot.


Thanks in advance.

I am only able to adjust font size by clicking on the text in a file to enter the file, and adjusting from there. It adjusts both the file text and the console text.

I hope that's what you were looking for.

Hi Thomas.

I looked at the View menu and tried reducing the font size. It shrank both the file text and the console text. It's not perfect but it'll do.

Thanks for your help.

Sean :-)
