FileZilla for macOS: how to adjust font size?

#1 Post by purin » 2020-05-08 17:37

I am using FileZilla Pro 3.48.0 with macOS Catalina 10.15.4 in a 13" MacBook Pro Late 2013. The font size in the screens is too small for me to read even on a 27" HiRes monitor.

In case it may be helpful, I have attached a screen shot of the "About FileZilla" from my laptop.

In most macOS applications, one is able to increase/decrease font size on screen using keyboard controls.

Does FileZilla for Mac have any such keyboard controls so I can use the application?

Thank you for any suggestions that may be available.

There is no way to change the font size in FileZilla. You can change it system-wide though in the Settings app under Display.

Thanks for replying botg. This limitation does make it unusable for vision impaired.

How so? Are the vision impaired not allowed to change the system-wide font size?

It's not the same thing. Infact most application offers the separate specific interal setting to do so.

But it's okay if you don't have time and resource to do so in your application, just don't try to be too smart about it like if you don't know the difference.
