    Question Console Size

    I'm trying to resize the console window to a size of 19x15.
    Code:
      const SMALL_RECT sm = {1, 1, 18, 14};
      SetConsoleWindowInfo(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), TRUE, &sm);
      SetConsoleScreenBufferSize(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), (COORD) {19, 15});
    That works... but the font size is TEENY TINY! It's on the lowest setting... something like 2x4...

    So, can someone explain what is wrong, and why the font size is microscopic? Thanks.

    Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
