There are three types of fonts which can be set:
Editing Area: Used for the edit window. This is a normally a fixed width font.
Dialog boxes: Used for dialog box buttons, menus and prompt fields.
Tables & trees: Used for displaying information in a dialog box. Using a smaller font can allow you to see more entries in the dialog, e.g. files or functions.
