For the record, the font used by dbconsole "should" be pulled from the operating systems Appearance settings (advanced). This is what allows the SQL Anywhere utilities to change to the theme that is applied to the machine that you are running it on.
So if you need a larger font overall, you should be able to change it there and that change should be rendered in the utility the next time you run it.
Or maybe I should say..... This is how it "SHOULD" work. I went back and forth with the SQL Anywhere development team when the Java version of Sybase Central was relatively new because it didn't follow Windows standards that had been laid out for Windows applications.
Let me know if that works for you. I'm going to try and check my machine later on tonight.

Obviously this is not a direct answer to your question, but you could either output the log to a text file with the startup switches on the DB or alternatively write the messages that would go into the log to a text file bypassing the log altogether using string variables and unload selects. You would have much more control over formatting at that point, but you would also have external files to deal with.

There is no way to change the font used by the SQL Anywhere Console (dbconsole).
Can you tell us which panel you wanted to view with a monospaced font? (Connections, Properties, and/or Messages)? Is the default font not readable?
