@Torsten: Thanks for looking at this. After http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/4aa86466f971 both items are working. Marking report as fixed and closing.

There are two issues with the font selection in the Variable Editor Preferences tab.

First, when "Use Terminal Font" checkbox is checked, whatever is in the Font dialog box immediately to the left is unused. It would be useful to gray out the Font and Font Size widgets when the terminal font is being used.

Second, on my system the list dialog for Font always shows "Liberation Mono". I can change the font to something else, and the Variable Editor uses the correct new font, but if I re-open the Preferences it shows the Font as "Liberation Mono" again, even though that is not what the GUI is actually using.

As an example, I changed the font to URW Chancery L which is a cursive font and very recognizable. When I open the V.E. Preferences tab I see the following attached screenshot.
