Changing the Font Size in Eclipse

Changing the Font Size in Eclipse

Within Eclipse click Window > Preferences. This will open up the Preferences dialog with gives you about a million configuration settings to tweak.

At the top of the list on the left you will see General. Click to open this. Next click Appearances. Finally, select Colors and Fonts from under Appearances.

This is where it gets confusing. Eclipse shows a tree of what appear to be languages or plugins or something. Underneath each one are many options for specific types of text. There are many choices in this dialog with no clearly obvious one.

Well, the one you’re looking for is “Text Font” under the “Basic” node. Select this and click the “Change…” button that appears. From here, it’s just a matter of selecting the new font size and applying it.

Oh, and when you’re ready to go back to the old font size just click the Reset button to go back to your old settings.
