Can you adjust the default font/font size in the Xamarin AXML Designer?

Hi there, I am using VS 2012 and I am wondering if there is a way to configure the Source editor in designer to use a different font and/or font size? My vision is not what is used to be so I was hoping to make things a little easier to read :)

Thanks again for a really great product!

    There are zoom controls in the top right corner, which you can use to zoom in and out on the view of the phone.

    Fonts in general in VS2012 can be adjusted to your likings in: TOOLS -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors, here you can go nuts with adjustments. Just set the Font size of the Text Editor to the desired size.

    You can also adjust the size of fonts by holding CTRL and scrolling with the mouse wheel.

    Thank you for responding! I have been playing around with the font sizes in VS 2010 but at this point I cannot find which view type associates with the Designer source view (tried XML but that didn't work). For now I will use the ctrl zoom option, that seems to do the trick. Thanks again!!!
