I'm running Oxygen on a Mac and have added WindowBuilder. The WindowBuilder editor displays in a small font. I would like to increase its font size. But I have not been able to figure out how do so. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. (By the way, I can change the font size on the Java editor that is part of Oxygen.)

Which "editor" do you mean? Can you provide a screenshot of it?

I having the problem with the editor that is in WindowBuilder. It's font is tiny and I can't figure out how to change its size. I tried to take a screenshot as you requested, but I'm new to Macs. I couldn't do it. Nevertheless, I assure you the the font size is very small. Many thanks for your help.

OS X has an utility called Grab. It has instructions in the Help pages.

Hi there,

the problem is the same on Linux using Oxygen.1 + recent WindowBuilder.

I can change the font size for the regular Java Editor in Prefs / GEneral / Appearance / Colors and Fonts / Basic / Text Font. This works fine for now SWING classes (as well as the common CTRL-+, CTRL-- shortcuts).

The font size in the Source tab of a Window builder file is not affected by the above setting, nor do above shortcuts work.

For teaching my classes, I would highly appreciate the shortcuts to work as well for the WindowBuilder editor (it worked on Neon, I guess).

Bets regards
Sven

In case anyone still has this issue, the WindowBuilder font size is located at:
Window > Preferences > General > Appearance > Colors & Font > Basic > Text Font.

[ Window > Preferences > General > Appearance > Colors & Font > Basic > Text Font. ]
[ Window > Preferences > General > Appearance > Colors & Font > Java > Java Editor Text Font. ]
These settings does not work for me.

I mean, I want to change the font of SWT Editor's source tab.

I still don't know how to change the font.

I'm Japanese.
From Photon, default Japanese font has become garbled.
So this is critical issue for me.

Does anyone solve this problem yet?

Thank you very much in advance.

My Environment :
Eclipse Photon 4.8.0
Window Builder (and SWT Designer) 1.9.1
