Extremely minor: is there a hidden preference for changing the font/size of the Activity Viewer text?

Reported by Philip Kizer | June 5th, 2014 @ 01:41 PM

I've tried bringing up the "Show Fonts" panel and clicking in the Activity Viewer account thread and details areas but the Font Panel does not appear to have any effect.

Is there a hidden preference to alter the Font and/or Size of text in the Activity Viewer window?

    No, there is no preference for this, but it's kind of part of a bigger problem: Many users don't even discover that “Show Fonts” can be used to change fonts in other parts of the GUI — or think that it can be used to change the font of any emails sent.

    Using “Show Fonts” is a “clever” solution that doesn't work well in practice. I'd like to move font settings to the Preferences and I'm thinking it could be done using a table-view with a list of configurable fonts. The fonts in the list could/should be derived from the window layouts and this is why I'm taking this detour: Such a solution would make it easy to make the font(s) in the Activity Viewer configurable.

    No time frame on this though.
