How to Increase Sublime Text Sidebar Font Size


You may have noticed that the default sidebar font size is too small in Sublime Text. Fortunately, there is a way to change that. Skip to step 5 if you already have Package Control and PackageResourceViewer installed.

  1. Install Package Control if you haven’t already
  2. Hit cmd + shift + p to bring up the command palette
  3. Type in “Package Control: Install Package” and hit enter
  4. Type in “PackageResourceViewer” and hit enter
  5. Bring up the command palette again
  6. Type in “PackageResourceViewer: Open Resource” and hit enter
  7. Select your theme (e.g. Theme – Soda)
  8. Select your theme file (e.g. Soda Dark 3.sublime-theme)
  9. Hit cmd + f and find “Sidebar entry”
  10. Add "font.size": 16 to the options*
  11. Save and restart Sublime Text

*The options should look something like this:

    // Sidebar entry
        "class": "sidebar_label",
        "color": [125, 125, 125],
        "shadow_color": [0, 0, 0],
        "shadow_offset": [0, -1],
        "font.bold": false,
        "font.italic": false,
        "font.size": 16

If you did everything right, you should have larger and easier to see sidebar font.
