Currently, the Appearance tab in MySQL workbench (Menu Edit-->Preferences) only allows for changing the fonts and sized for the SQL Editor window, but not the result window.  The font size for the query result is too small in the desired and recommended resolution for my monitor.  It is quite difficult to read the results.  It would be very helpful if you allow for the query results to have its own font settings as well.

How to repeat:
Go to MySQL workbench (Menu Edit-->Preferences) and click on Appearance tab. There is no way to change fonts on the query result window, only the editor window.

Thanks Godofredo.
I updated to 6.0.7 and I still do not see the settings for changing the fonts for the result window.  Please see attachment.  Let me  know if I am missing something and also where to find the settings for the result window, if it really is available.

Using 6.1.6 and I also can't change the font size of the query result. Only the query editor.

Using Windows 8.1.

A new configuration option was added to configure the font in the results
