I am running Aquamacs 3.3 under macOS Sierra (10.12.6). The default fonts are way too small. How can I do the equivalent of the following tedious procedure via code in my .emacs?

  • Options Menu -> Appearance -> font for LaTeX mode (or whichever mode I'm in)
  • The fonts window now pops up and I need to:
    • click Monaco 18.0 pt
    • click the T (for text colour) and then click the black icon (because in some modes it chooses white as the font colour by default...)
    • close the color window and the font window

It turns out that my .emacs was doing something that was incompatible with the default Aquamacs behaviour of saving font choices on Quit. So... if somebody else ever runs across this problem, I suggest temporarily removing your .emacs and seeing if the problem persists.
