code editor font name and size
Did a search through the forum and couldn't find anything directly related to this. I know there is no way through the GUI to set the code editor font name and size; is there a manual way that I can do this with the current release? As I do more and more in Architect and in the code editor, the 9pt Courier is getting a bit harsh on my eyes ;-) .
I'm sure this is in a list of future release features, but if there is any manual way to do this now (e.g., edit a config file), I'd love to know. If it's not on the future feature list, I for one, would find this very useful, esp. as you make Architect more and more functional. Thanks.

Great news! Thanks you. Font name too, by chance? I'd love to be able to use Monaco :-)

General FONT problems in Sencha Architect
The readability problem is actually more about the font choice than it's size. People ask for a bigger text size in the editor because the Courier font (or whatever it is) is quite hard to read. Please let users set their own choice of fonts.
Overall, the Sencha Architect application has a horrible GUI-experience on the Mac. Nearly all menus, text items, code editor text etc. in the app is chosen with styles making them unnecessarily hard to read. Also, it makes very poor use of menu items and general Mac OS X functionality that is expected of every app.
Is Sencha Architect a project that is just ported from some other platform? Because that would explain a lot.
