Well...that works in BlackBox Component Builder.
In ETH Oberon you have to edit the file:


Then go to the line:

"DefaultFont"=	Syntax10.Scn.Fnt

And change it to something like 

"DefaultFont"=	Syntax14.Scn.Fnt

Or in Plugin Oberon, open IniEdit.Panel.  Then
Go to "Fonts" and then "DefaultFont".

Or use the command:

System.Set Fonts DefaultFont := Syntax14.Scn.Fnt

To know what fonts are available use:

System.Directory *.Fnt.

One thing I noticed though.  Changing
the default font doesn't automagically make
text files already created (including tools)
have different fonts.
