    This is probably a daft question but is there a way to increase the height of the view at the bottom of the code editor which displays the additional information about certain properties and methods? I.e: this one:

    -image-

    The view seems to scroll but I see no way of increasing its height. Do I need to file a Feedback request for this?

    it would be nice if ALL the aspects of the IDE allowed User Define font sizes.... on a 27" monitor I can barely read 12/13 size fonts (and no changing the system level is not an option as if affects other programs that are fine)

    There isnt

    @Garry P Do I need to file a Feedback request for this?

    yes

    about the best you can do is open preferences & turn on General > Navigator, Library, & Inspector > use large font

    many items, but not, in the IDE do obey this and will use a larger font size

    @Norman P l use a larger font size

    looks like 14 instead of 12.... not a huge improvement :)

    its what you have
    there are already FR's for letting users define all kinds of preferences for font size

    I suggested some enhancements to this a couple of years ago:

    I've created a feedback case specifically to add a grab-handle/resizing widget to the description view separator. I'm all for being able to increase the font size too but at least being able to increase the size of the view (so more text is visible) would be very useful:

    Feedback Case #56010

    @Kevin G: I like your feedback case - especially the ability to document method parameters.

    This should be 4 separate requests

    Make that 5 as i've just added to it.

    It should be separate cases but the less time spent in Feedback the better.

    one giant case means that it wont get closed if they do only 3 parts

    Whatever makes it more likely to get addressed by the engineers I say do.
