Hi,

You can use View >> Zoom In a or Ctrl and +. You can zoom in with Ctrl and - . you can return to normal Ctrl and 0.

You need to use thse combinations in Terminal window after launching.

Cheers,

To make the changes permanent you might modify tour profile. To modify your terminal profile:
- Launch a terminal Window
- Click Edit >> Profiles >> Default >> Edit
- Unselect "Use the system terminal font"
- Then Font will be highlighted. You can select any size and click close , close

Then it will launch terminal with this font and size as default.

Cheers,
K.
