Changing the fonts size in the Message Area of the IDE

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.
