SimpleMDE text-size in textarea


Anyone know how to resize the text size for text areas that use SimpleMDE? I'm referring not to any kind of styling, like headers, but the actual text size used within the editor itself in Perch. I'd like to boost the size to make editing easier for clients—the default size is quite small.

Hello Franz,

Add a custom css file to the control panel (here's how: and set font-size for .simplemde-wrap:

.simplemde-wrap {
    font-size: 1.15em;

Thanks! Worked wonderfully.
