Is there a way to increase the font size on the Job Step Properties window on SSMS (18.9.2)?

I'm using Ole Hallengren DB Maintenance Jobs and have a lot of arguments/exclusions to edit in SSMS > SQL Server Agent > Jobs > Job Property >  Steps > Edit > Command

Tested the Options in Tools > Options > Fonts but was not able to change above mentioned TextBox Font or Size.

Using copy/paste the Command-Text to a Notepad Session, change it and copy/paste back to SSMS ...

 

Thanks for your support.

@Oracle_SQL-Server_DBA , you can not change the font size for specific dialogs.

Me too, I created a stored procedure to call the script with all wanted parameter; in the job step I simple execute the stored procedure.

Hi Olaf, thanks for your feedback.

I'd like to ask Microsoft to include font-options for this section as well. Do you know where to place this request ?@olafhelper 

There have been some web sites for feature request & feedback, but those days have gone.
May you have more luck to find a way.
