Increase font size in text window

Asked by Nigel Blackwell

This app is great. Simple and powerful for creating a novel. However, I'm struggling with the size of the font in the text editing window, is it possible to increase this? I don't need to be able to set italics etc, just select a bigger font (pref one with more whitespace top and bottom, like Waree.

This feature you want has already been added for 1.8, actually, it is in the bazaar repository.
You can change the font size on the text, tree, tabs, nodepath, and attributes.

If you want to use this (there is no install package right now) try from your command line:

bzr branch lp:kabikaboo

then cd into the trunk directory and type:


You will get all the latest features then.

This works great, thanks for the instructions (new to linux so no idea about bazaar etc).
I did have to edit to add import glib because running it generated an error. Thanks again.
