Different font size per pane possible?


I would very much like to be able to increase-decrease font size in just the currently selected pane instead of all open panes at once.

That there isn’t already a package to do this tells me it’s probably something beyond what packages can do, although I’d like to be proven wrong.

Is this a feature that other people want, and are we ever likely to get it?


You can add this to your styles.less:

.pane.active {
  atom-text-editor {
    font-size: 20px;

There are a lot of visual or UI things that aren’t given explicit features because they can, once you understand some things about how the UI is constructed, be added fairly easily with simple customization of one’s personal configuration or with small, simple packages.

And for other indications of what could be possible with styles.less you can check my dotfiles repo:
