My comment #2 is erroneous. As Armin said there is indeed a second preference pane for the editor in which we can change the fontname and fontsize.

Eric, is one of the comments helpful for the issue you are seeing on your system?

The gui for 3.8.0 is very buggy for me on MacOS.  However, 3.8.2 works well.  See the attached window.

Hmmm, the bug is filed for Mac OS. At least under Windows 7, 64 bit, MXE Octave 3.8.2, it is working as follows:

Settings => Editor Styles => Octave Default => Font + Size O.K.
Settings => Terminal => Font + Size O.K.

Screenshot attached.

Are you really talking about Editor preferences or Terminal? The latter indeed features a combo box to choose font (which is disabled on mac due to bug #40545), but I don't see such preference for the editor.
AFAIR terminal font size used to work for me on octave 3.8.0 installed from octave-forge dmg.

Thanks for your bug report. Can you, or anyone else, try the latest stable version 3.8.2 to see if this bug is still present? Is it only in 3.8.0? Or is it specific to the way Octave was configured and compiled? There are currently many ways to configure and install Octave for a Mac OS and you did not mention how yours was installed.

Font name can not be selected and changed
Font size can be changed, but has no effect

So tiny text basically unreadable on Macbook standard resolution.
