Hi all, folks.
As a relatively new one in the Atom community, I have the opportunity to see things the experienced gurus no longer see. I will write you here about one of them.
Atom is a very good editor, it is used by more and more users. I don’t suppose everyone is 20~30 years old geek with hawk-eye vision, there are certainly middle and advanced age people, some of them with visual problems. There is definitely one such person - me (age 65, 4 D on each eye).
I know that any aspect of the user interface can be customized, but why, the hell, should I look for each package separately, which information and which class I have to write to my styles.less file to increase font size?
Yes, there are “Increase/decrease font size” items in View menu, but it acts only to editor tabs (where Ctrl+mouse roll is quicker)
I have three suggestions:
Add the item “Minimum GUI font size” to the global settings, and the new packages must respect this option (older packages should include this in the next update)
Each new package must in its settings contain a “GUI font size” entry (again, older packages should include this in the next update). Disobedience is punishable by shooting
Add these two rules to package authors’ manual.
Just my 5 cents.
Have a nice day
PS. Searching “font size of this or that” - 50+ results at Atom Discuss, searching >atom editor “font size”< on Google 320.000 results (I know, most of them non pertinent)
PPS. For opening file click on Open file menu item, for find smth in project click on Find in project menu item, and so on. For open Settings tab click on Preferences menu item. Reminds me famous “For stop computer click on button Start”
