It's been a while since I saw it, but I swear I once had a graphical tool for editing various Grub parameters, including the splash screen image, font, font size, and the grub menu, but I can't find it now.

With GRUB2 on Jessie, how do I increase the menu's font _size_ .
A Google search wandered around my problem without addressing it.
I did discover that that GRUB was using a resolution that
matched my monitor's settings.

[When menu comes up go to command mode by typing 'c'. Then
enter 'vbeinfo' to see list of supported resolutions. In my
case the active resolution was listed as 1280 x 1024.]

You will need to convert a font of your choice to GRUB's pf2 format:

     # grub-mkfont -o /boot/grub/fonts/example.pf2 -s 24

(adjust the names to reflect your chosen font. The parameter to
-s is the font size in pixels).

Next up, tell grub that you want to use your new font. Add this
to /etc/default/grub:



     # update-grub

I'm confused. We may be using the term "font" differently. The existing
font family is acceptable. I just wish to change size of existing font.
