In pgAdmin 1.14.0 setting a bigger font does indeed cause the fonts to get bigger, but any table of data generated for display in the "Output Pane" of a SQL Query window fails to grow its row size vertically. So the larger font is clipped and unreadable.
Strangely, the Control+Mouse-ball-down works in the output pane! Both the font *and* the row height increase. Thanks for the tip on that mouse trick -- it is a workaround for this fixed-row-height bug. This makes demonstrating Postgres to an audience much easier.
I reported this bug in another thread (subject below). I just updated that thread with the above link to a screenshot.
