How can I change the font size in GnuCash on OS X? I wasn't able to find anything in the preferences.

I tried using 'gconftool-2' on '~/.gconf' where GnuCash stores its GTK settings, but I wasn't able to get it to read the settings directory.

Thanks for the edit. I wasn't all there when I was posting. – harishtella Sep 7 '11 at 22:05

You can increase the font size by creating a ~/.gtkrc-2.0.gnucash-file with the following contents:

style "font"
  font_name = "Arial Narrow 12"
widget_class "*" style "font"
gtk-font-name = "Arial Narrow 12"
