The font used in LyX editor is very small for me to read. I want to increase it. Please not that I am not asking how to change the font size in the output. I could not find in the menu. (I am using LyX with MiKTeX in Windows 7)

    This sounds like a question for google. What about: latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=23786 ? – jon Jul 12 '15 at 5:02

    Hold down Ctrl and scroll up in the text area as is for most windows applications? – percusse Jul 12 '15 at 9:23

    Note that you can also control the size of different layouts. For example, you could make only ERT text large, etc. To learn how to have this fine level of customization though you would need to read the manuals. See Help > Customization – scottkosty Jul 12 '15 at 10:37

Menu Tools > Preferences > Look & Feel > Screen Fonts


As commented, also with Ctrl + mouse wheel you can increase the font size at any time.
