VSCode still doesn’t have an easy way to change the font size and line height of side bar text. All current solutions to achieve this are hacky and either require loading in a custom CSS file that modifies the sidebar styling or updating the zoom level globally and then modifying the editor/terminal/etc panels’ font sizes so it looks right.
This is mostly not an issue in VSCode because the sidebar panel extensions in VSCode are not that important to the editor experience, but on Cursor, the chat panel is a core feature!
Would love if you guys added a few settings that control only the chat panel’s font size and line height for better readability
+1 for the feature. It is almost impossible to read chat output on 13 inch screen. Generally, we’ve many windows open and the font size is just un-readable. I copy paste the entire chat in a new buffer to read it.
Please work on a fix for this one.
Just to be sure, is the font size in the chat the same as in the editor for you? Or is it smaller than the editor font size?
@truell20 It’s much smaller than my editor font, very hard to read on 13 inch screen
I’ve currently zoomed in the entire editor ( changed
window.zoomLevel from 0 to 0.3) and then reduced my editor and terminal font size to compensate, but this has the unfortunate side effect of making everything bigger (icons, tab sizes, etc) so I’m left with less room on the screen as a result
Would really appreciate it if I could just adjust only the chat panel’s font size and line height, thank you!
Could you send a screenshot?
