To insert text with Latex in Sage Notebook we can create a special cell with a nice embedded text-editor by shift-clicking between two cells, but then the default font is really tiny compared to the one of the code. Change it every time is quite annoying. Any way to change it once and for all?

EDIT: I mean the default font size both in the output and in the editor while composing.

Did you figure out the solution for increasing font size while composing?

You can create a file $HOME/.sage/notebook.css with the following content

.text_cell { font-size: 16px; }

Then restart your notebook. Change the font size to what you like of course.

Thank you! This solves half of the problem, the one about the output. I've edited my question, adding that I'm annoyed also by the size of the text in the editor itself.

I am not so sure about the content in the tinymce editor. I suspect it is controlled by the tinymce editor itself, and given what my searches came up with, one needs to [provide a custom css file]( during the init of the editor.
