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

Is it possible?

    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.)

    Every time I set up WinMerge I need to search for this setting. I wonder why the font settings are not part of the WinMerge options found under "Edit" -> "Options".

Did you try Ctrl + Mouse Wheel?

    That works. But if you restart, the setting is gone.
