The following commands change the default face within a buffer.
To increase the height of the default face in the current buffer,
type C-x C-+ or C-x C-=. To decrease it, type C-x
C--. To restore the default (global) face height, type C-x
C-0. These keys are all bound to the same command,
text-scale-adjust, which looks at the last key typed to
determine which action to take.
The final key of these commands may be repeated without the leading
C-x. For instance, C-x C-= C-= C-= increases the face
height by three steps. Each step scales the height of the default
face by the value of the variable
text-scale-mode-step. As a
special case, an argument of 0 removes any scaling currently active.
text-scale-decrease increase or decrease the height of the
default face, just like C-x C-+ and C-x C-- respectively.
You may find it convenient to bind to these commands, rather than
text-scale-set sets the height of the default face
in the current buffer to an absolute level specified by its prefix
The above commands automatically enable or disable the minor mode
text-scale-mode, depending on whether the current font scaling
is other than 1 or not.
To temporarily change the face in the current buffer to a variable-pitch (“proportional”) font, use the command M-x variable-pitch-mode to enable or disable the Variable Pitch minor mode.blog comments powered by Disqus
