How to increase font-size in SourceTree?

17 answers

Just because of this "minor" issue I am switching to an alternative tool!

How `font-size` change is minor at the first place is blowing my mind. Technically it could be small (or big), but business wise, it's not especially considering they deliberately set the font size to like 10px or something, which is almost impossible for people older than 40 years !

@Dimitre Novatchev Any traction on the font size issues yet? People like me desperately want configurable font sizes, but do you still think the problem is minor? Unless Atlassian does NOT care for SourceTree.

Same here. I'm now using the git client of VS Code.

I am looking for a git browser as simple and uncomplicated as `gitk`, but for MacOS.

Sourcetree could be that git browser. I like how it lets me look at other branches than the one I've checked out, and that I can select either the diff for a single file or the diff for any set of files (either all or some specific subset).

Unfortunately, the font size is too small for me to read.

For now, it can't be changed! I think there is an improvement on the issue tracker of Source Tree.

I have vision problems and can't see the tiny tiny font you use.  I hate to say this but I think ADA requires adjusting font size for the vision impaired, like me.

Adding another request for this. As my eyes get older I need the large-print edition of nearly everything, and Sourcetree is tiny little fuzzy letters when I can read my editor and terminal.

Over 4 years and nothing has happened. This is obviously not a high priority.

Shame, because SourceTree is my preferred Git GUI. I currently use GitExtensions because of its font size change support.

5.5 years and counting, and the font is still to small to read.

Just went searching for this, usually it doesn't both me but lately I've been upping the size of most of my programs. Just find it a little easier scanning with my eyes when you can increase font size.

Is there a timeline for this issue please?

The top page on the website says:

"Visualize your work and push with confidence."

I am new to GIT. I stumbled across this app, not knowing if it is active or not, but the first thing I needed to do is increase font size. Form this thread it appears as though it is not an active project? 

If it is, are there any old people like me working on the development that can let the youngsters know that it is a deal breaker when the user can literally not "visualize" the work because the font is so tiny.

Yes, there's old people if you call anyone above 40 old. 

But who the heck use font size 10px any more, as a fixture? This is almost insane in UI design.

Here a 41 years old 'going-blind' user due I was Sourcetree user.

Mac too please!

Same here, please add the increase font size feature! 

Just adding one more voice.  I am actually switching back to Sourcetree, because I like Sourctree better, but this font issue is pretty annoying.

Can you just increase the font size by at least 1px. This is crazy.

I'm using it on MacBook Pro. The font size is terrible.

Amazing how long this has gone ignored, I guess my best option is to uninstall and use something better.

I have not any visual issue. Simply the fontsize is unacceptable. Since a month ago I migrated to VSCODE git client. SourceTree was my favorite, but I'm not going to get blind cause' of that. No way.

Unbelievable, actually there's a solution to this, at least partial solution.
