Use ctrl + scroll.
But sadly this doesn't stick, so next time you have the same fun/pain again

Also the font is weird and sometimes even unreadable. This was brought to the dev's attention many times, but somehow making this trainwreck sane again requires big effort. At least that's what I was told....

So, maybe in version 25?

Since you mentioned CTRL+scroll, I tried it as well and found it works in several other places as well to increase/decrease the size of text:
- In the Text Editor Window of the Text/Label Tool
- In the Project Notes Window and the Session Report Window
- In the script Windows of the GDL Editor

This is all I could find for now, there may be more.

here is a strange thing
the old screenshot is from my home PC
this one is from another PC, and it shows this font without ctrl+scroll,
readable and clear
Why ?

Why ?

Is one a high resolution monitor and the other not?
Or they may be set to different screen resolutions or font scaling.
