matlab.fonts Settings

Code font settings

The default font that MATLAB uses for a particular tool depends upon its content. You can change the default font using the matlab.fonts settings. Access matlab.fonts using the root SettingsGroup object returned by the settings function. For example, set the temporary value for the code font name to 'Times New Roman' (where the default is 'Monospaced').

s = settings;
s.matlab.fonts.codefont.Name.TemporaryValue = 'Times New Roman'
