Does anyone know how to change the size of the line number font in the grey left-hand column?


  • Welcome to TeX.se. Unfortunately I don't think there's a way to change this. – Alan Munn Dec 18 '18 at 14:05
  • If TeXShop is like TeXStudio then changing the document font size will also change the size of the line number font. – JPi Dec 18 '18 at 14:35
  • But I'm sure the authors would know how to do this. ;-) – JPi Dec 18 '18 at 14:35
  • No, increasing the source font size/magnification doesn't change the size of the line numbers. I know of no way to do this in TeXShop. – Herb Schulz Dec 18 '18 at 15:27
  • If you are using a recent version of TeXShop you might be able to make the numbers easier to see by reducing the transparency (alpha) of the Source window in the Themes tab of TeXShop->Preferences. No guarantees. – Herb Schulz Dec 18 '18 at 15:34
