FAQ
Thank you very much for your help.
I was able to solve the problem by creating a new file,
$HOME/.idle
and putting the following lines into it:
[EditorWindow]
font-name= courier
font-size= 14

Your help gave me the pointer I needed.
Tipton

Please forgive me if this is FAQ, but I haven't been able to find the
answer.

When I run IDLE on WIN98, it looks great. But when I run it under KDE,
the type size is too small for my old eyes.

Just a RTFM :o)

Form the IDLE Help :

<copy_paste from="idle help">
Other preferences:

To change the font on Windows, open EditorWindow.py and change
text['font'] = ("lucida console", 8)
to, e.g.,
text['font'] = ("courier new", 10)
</copy_paste>

This is not clearly indicated but this works with Unix too !

"lucida console", 10 is perfect to me but you may prefer another monotype
font available to your system.

Note : this has no connection with KDE since IDLE is not a KDE app.
