Hi all,
I am using a lot Matlab both with the small screen of my laptop and with my large 34" external screen. Is there a way to programmatically set the font size of the command window and of the editor on the basis of the desktop resolution?
Best regards,

Hi Michele,
You may use MATLAB's settings object to set and modify MATLAB preferences on the fly. Have a look at the doc linked below to get the hang of it.
I think you might be looking for the 'matlab.fonts.codefont.Size' setting.
Hope it helps!

Thank you. That is working beautifully. Which is the property which set the font size of the command window?
