Atom Editor’s Project Tree/Tabs/UI Default Font Too Small

Atom‘s default font size of the menu tabs, tree and other UI elements doesn’t auto-scale with “ctrl+scroll”. And the font is too small to read without squinting your eyes. Here’s the fix — open the styles.less file from Settings -> Open Config Folder, and add the following style:

@font-size: 14px;
html, body, .tree-view, .tab-bar .tab {
font-size: @font-size;

Change the font-size property to your preference and save the file to see the effect. Read more about the issue at the Atom’s GitHub Forum.
