I would also love to find out how to make changes to the way edit() -- or in my case, View(), but that's presumably using the same resources -- looks under Linux. On my 4K display, the font size is so small as to be barely readable. I would assume this requires some adjustment to .Xresources, but I don't know what keys might be relevant. Searching through the source code didn't give me any clues. See also:


The only mention of Xresources I could find were under ?X11, but this pertains to plots, not edit() and View(). 

I asked about this on R-sig-Debian in 2017:


I don't think I ever followed this up on R-devel (where maybe this belongs), so happy to move this there if nobody here has any suggestions.
