Is there a way in Helios, (and if so, what is it) to change the font used in your basic view windows such as the Project Explorer? I find I can change the font on the Title tab of such views but not in the view itself. The default is just too big for me. I find nothing in the Windows->Preferences that handles this most basic of settings.

Many of those things are controlled by the operating system or window
manager settings.
