Can't change the font in Netbeans Output Window?

Published Mon, 24 Jun 2013

I just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why I couldn't change the font in Netbean's output window (which inexplicable uses Java's default system monospaced font and is not modifiable by the standard Options dialog).

It turns out that you can change the font via the right click menu... but only if you have line wrapping disabled!

Not sure why this particularly esoteric "feature" works this way. Indeed the setting only applies when wrapping is disabled. I guess at least it sort-of works.
