Font size in VIM


I use VIM version 7.1.56 on Ubuntu OS.
Can you tell me pls how can I change the font-size in VIM?

Are you refering to GUI VIM?

If so, then I suggest you add the following line to the file .vimrc to use Times New Roman font.

set guifont=Times_New_Roman:h11:cANSI

For more information, read point # 31.2 in the online help & FAQ of VIM

Vim documentation: vim_faq

Good luck
