I am just starting out with Python and was trying to use idle, but the
are so small it's giving me a headache.  I followed the instructions in
help menu and tried editing the '' file to no avail. I
out the first line and uncommented the second as recommended: no change.
I tried
changing the sizes of both fonts to 10, 12: no change.  The only thing I
can figure is
that idle is using some default that is not reflected by either of these
lines. Can someone
help before I go blind.  Thanks.
