is there any way to get a higher resolution just for IDE part of the program?

i'm totally fine with the 128x128 res for the games themselves but i'd really love to be able to stay in the pico8 environment while i'm playing around with code but the resolution is so low that the font is nearly unreadable because there aren't enough pixels to create a letter!

any way to overcome?

You can open the .p8 file in your text editor of choice. I'd recommend SublimeText or Notepad++

You can edit and save from your text editor then click on your Pico-8 window and just press Ctrl+R to test your game without having to reload the file into Pico-8.

Atom isn't a bad choice either, it has a Pico-8 syntax highlighting as well, and is completely open source.
