Unfortunately there is no way to change the font size in the SDL Studio Alignment Editor View from within Studio.

One way you can change the font size in the Alignment Editor View is by changing the Windows scaling under the Control Panel. But that increases the size of everything on the screen and can lead to the cutting off of text in dialogue boxes. Alternatively you can change the screen resolution which will change the font size, but why invest in a high resolution screen only to "de-tune" it to get a comfortable font size. Technically speaking there are several ways in which the font size can be changed, but SDL need to incorporate the technology into their software.

Another way would be have a secondary monitor with a lower resolution and the the font would appear larger.
