The size of the text is controlled by the Windows setting for text size. You can't make it larger or smaller without changing how all Windows text looks.

 

If you want to change this, right click on your desktop, select "Screen Resolution" and then "Make rext and other items larger or smaller" and pick Medium or Larger and then log off the computer and back on. All text will then be larger.


OR.....

 

While in the formula editor you can hit the control key and while selected zoom your mouse wheel forward/backward.

 

This is just a temporary solution and the text size will reset itself the next time you enter the formula editor but i find that it is quick and easy to do this as i already had one hand on the keyboard and one on the mouse upon entering the editor.

Use a text editor such as Notepad + +

With the option - "Language - VB" and syntax highlighting
