Increase Font Size of Calc Formula Toolbar in LibreOffice Version 6

The upgrade to LibreOffice version 6 seems to have eliminated the ability to adjust the font size of the Calc Formula Toolbar. It needs to be increased to improve legibility. The ability to modify the size of the formula toolbar, in prior versions of LibreOffice, was previously addressed in: How do you increase fontsize on the LibeOffice toolbar and dropdown menus? Apparently that answer no longer applies to LibreOffice version 6. The scaling option appears to have been depreciated. How can the font size of the Calc formula toolbar be increased to make more legible?

The change happened in 2016 (this commit), and was introduced in version 5.3. It is because the feature to scale UI elements is a standard feature of all OSes and desktop environments, and LibreOffice obeys the OS settings. So users who need to have enlarged UI, should use OS-provided means to do that.

What does "So users who need to have enlarged UI, should use OS-provided means to do that." mean? How can the font size of the toolbar be increased?

You didn't provide details about your OS. As I said, you should use your OS features to scale the UI, but I have no means to tell you how it is done in your OS without knowing which is that (and even when I know, there's no guarantee that I know the details about that specific OS - you should consult your OS manuals).

My apologies. Linux. Specifically Ubuntu 16.04

Found the answer. Need to use the Tweak Tool. Fonts --> Scaling Factor. See: "How do I change fonts and adjust their size?"
