I constantly get to a situation where my 1-2 character tab titles are cut, as I have over 20 tabs open. One way to solve my problem, would be to decrease the font size of the tab titles. Any idea how can this be done?


Thanks desgua, indeed I do decrease the system font to a certain degree (Application Font=9), but that's help to a certain degree only. I guess the best solution would have been to find a way to get rid of the tabs' close buttons, but haven't been able to find a way to do that.

I think, if you have no setting on that, you can make a new programme from a source, then compile it. – antivirtel Jul 20 '11 at 5:10

You can go to menu > System > Preferences > Appearance and change the font size of "Application font".

For Unity, you need to open Dash and type Appearance to open System Appearance application – Manish Sinha Aug 9 '11 at 14:38
    
@desgua: I assume these settings are system wide. I can only find System Settings > Appearance, where I can apparently not change this. I can't find a way in the Terminals own settings. Perhaps smth changed since your answer in 2011. – Mads Skjern Jan 22 at 9:27
