How do I change the editor's font size? The writing is a little too small, since I can't see all too well.

If you are using one of the web-browser based releases (hosted or local) then you can use the zoom feature that is build into most modern web-browsers. If you are using the install-able executable release then you can use the zoom or Accessibility features built into most modern operating systems.

As far as I know there is no font scaling feature built into the Twine 2 application itself, although you can temporary(*) change the font-size of main section of the Passage Editor in any release by using the Web Developer Tools (of either the web-browser or the executable's web-kit) to Inspect the HTML that makes up the page and then adding custom CSS like the following to it.

.CodeMirror {
	font-size: 1.5em;

(*) Any CSS you apply this way should keep working until you shut down the Twine 2 application.

Ah, thanks for letting me know. It kinda sucks I have to use windows magnifier since I'm left with a pixelated mess at the end of it, but I guess it'll have to do.

Would it be possible to request such a feature, to save those who aren't web developers?

Would it be possible to request such a feature

You could create a new issue of the Twine project's repository requesting such a feature, if you do them make sure you mention the Accessibility side of the issue.

eg. Text being potentially too small for those with possible eye sight issues.
