How do I change the font used in macOS Sierra? Has Apple actually taken away the ability to set the font?

Currently in macOS Sierra the SFMono font bundled with the app seems to be in use. I cannot find any menu item for fonts, nor can I find any toolbar button available for accessing fonts.

The context-menu for the content of a Console.app window offers a Font > Show Fonts item. The standard font-picker appears. But choosing fonts in the picker has no effect on the Console.app window.


Unfortunately you can't change the font for Console.app OOTB with macOS 10.12.x.

Console.app uses the font that is located in the application itself ^. If you delete it, which is not recommended, the default font it will revert to Helvetiva.

^ /Applications/Utilities/Console.app/Contents/Resources/Fonts/.
