Jürgen, do you have to select a new font or is it sufficient to finish the settings dialog by clicking "OK"?

I have the same problem (Win-10 x64) and tried different Fonts:
Immediately it works fine, also with the Standard TT Courier New 10pt. But after reloading Octave I have the same problem with the new Font. So I noticed that changing to any Font works fine only for that Octave session!

In the video, we can see a variable width font in the console window (which should be possible to configure). What happens if you select a fixed width font in the "Terminal" tab of the settings dialog?

I've installed GNU Octave and i have this weird little bug with cursor having white spaces, which grows accordingly to amount of letters in line.

I've presented this bug in one of attachments.

Is it normal, and if not, how can i fix it ?

My OS is Antergos with Deepin.
