How can I change WinMerge font size and perhaps the font type?

Is it possible?

Windows "clear case" to smooth fonts doesn't seem to work :-/ – Junior M May 11 '11 at 13:08
When you change the font like this you might get a message that the active window will not be updated. Resolution: open it again. (Why I mention this is that if you just press Ok on the message you will not receive it again and a day later you will have forgotten it. And google. And find this comment.) – LosManos May 24 at 7:33

Did you try Ctrl + Mouse Wheel?

That works. But if you restart, the setting is gone. – timbooo May 11 '11 at 12:44
Yes, indeed the setting is lost, maybe we can tweek it on Windows registry? – Junior M May 11 '11 at 12:56
Maybe you could use @Junior Mayhé solution and mark it as the correct answer. – QueueHammer May 13 '11 at 12:13
