Making fonts larger when displaying source code in Emacs

Changing fonts in Emacs can be a bit obscure, and the wide variety provided can be tedious to find one that you want.


I accidentally came across the following which is allows twiddling font sizes up and down _per buffer_.   I.e. you can keep text small in some control buffer while keeping the text you want the audience to see large.


;; Font size up and down
M-x text-scale-increase

M-x text-scale-decrease


If you use them often enough you can bind them to keystrokes.   At least one must be bound by default in my Emacs installation, as I somehow accidentally made my font smaller in one buffer.   Have not managed to rediscover what keys I typed though.
