If anyone is still looking for a way to change the font/colors in the message
area of the IDE - here's how - in Windows7, at least.

Edit the file Theme.txt found here:

   C:\Users\YourName\Documents\Tech\Arduino\arduino-0022\lib\theme

I changed the colors and text size by making these changes:


Original:

# GUI - CONSOLE
console.font = Monospaced,plain,11
console.font.macosx = Monaco,plain,10
console.color = #000000
console.output.color = #cccccc
console.error.color = #ff3000

New:

# GUI - CONSOLE
console.font = Monospaced,plain,18
console.font.macosx = Monaco,plain,10
console.color = #ffffff
console.output.color = #cccccc
console.error.color = #000000


Of course you should save the original file under a name like theme.original.
