How do I change font size for Live Scripts?

127 views (last 30 days)
The option to change the font size for the new "Live Scripts" is not in preferences where you can change all the other font sizes. On my installation, the Live Script font size is about 8, way too small. Thanks for the help.

When presenting, "Ctrl Shift +" can help increase the font size.

I had the same problem. I partially worked-around it using the "Export as PDF" option. It does a pretty well job and the output can be scaled how much you want.
Of course this is just a partial work-around as the PDF is no longer interactive!

Finally figured it out.
On a mac, command+minus. Zoom in is command+plus.

Hold cmd + shift then use the scroll on your mouse to zoom in and out or slide two fingers on your scroll pad. This works for me on MAC.

In windows using Matlab 2017b, press control and then scroll up or down with your mouse, it will change the size of everything displayed in the live script.

Alternatively one can change under view
  • zoom in (cmd +)
  • zoom out (cmd -)
P.S: On a Mac.

My toolbars on the sides are super tiny and the right hand side toolbar disapears if I zoom in as per the above instructions. Any other ideas on how to make it bigger?
