Is there a way to make codecademy HTML/CSS editor font bigger

Hi, just curious if I can increase the font size in the codecademy editor without zooming in on my browser? I have MS and it makes my eyesight have good and bad days, today is a bad day and it would really good to see the code better, but I don’t want to mess up the browser zoom as I want to see what I’m working on at 100%, does that make sense?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Edited to make clearer what I asked for (in case someone else will find this useful)

Hi, I’m working on getting an answer for you…one second.

@beta7600121263 Are you using Chrome by any chance? I just found an extension that you can add that will allow you to adjust the font sizes on different websites:

Would that help?


Hey, thanks a lot. I am using chrome, so I will give that a try and let you know.

Wow, that’s brilliant, I’m not sure how it works exactly, but the text in both editor and instructions are adjustable and the result stays exactly as it was. I probably shouldn’t bother looking too closely into why it works (pun intended).

Really appreciate this Lisa. Thank you!

Oh, good!! I’m glad it works. :smiley:

I, too, was just wondering how it worked, but sometimes I should just leave things be. haha

Also, there’s one other option:

If you’re on a Mac you can press Command + Shift + P
and that will then bring up the palette editor where you can zoom in & out on the code editor font.

(CTRL + Shift + P on Windows)
