How do I change the font for the log window ? The current one does not have fixed width chars and that makes it unusable for me as I display often tables in the log.

Example:
9 12
XXXXxxxxxx
XXXXxxxxxx
XXXXxDXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXAA[]XX
[][][][][]
[][][][][]
On avance un peu (false)
25 15
XX[][][]XX
XX[][][]XX
XX[]AA[]XX
XX[][][]XX
XX[][][]XX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXX
XXXXxDXXXX
XXxxxxXXXX
xxxxxxxxXX
On avance un peu (false)
26 15
XXXX[][][]XX
XXXX[][][]XX
XXXX[]AA[]XX
XXXX[][][]XX
XXXX[][][]XX
XXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXxDXXXXXX
XXXXxxxxXXXX
xxxxxxxxxxXX
On avance un peu (true)
37 15
XX[][][]XXXX
XX[][][]XXXX
XX[]AA[]XXXX
XX[][][]XXXX
XX[][][]XXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXXX
XXxx[]xDXXXX
xxxxxxxxXXXX
xxxxxxxxXXXX
dispose
JH=12,105,240
NH=11,047,120
JH=12,106,136
NH=11,047,120

Currently it is not possible to change the logs font.
It's certainly trivial for 99% of users, but for me this is such a problem that I have to renounce using this version. The debugger is of no use with UltimateListView or libGDX so I rely entirely upon the log data. All console or logging window that I know use fixed width fonts so I'm bit puzzled by this choice. As for the comment/uncomment button, I cannot see the benefit.
For those who want a workaround, it is possible to use the Monitor tool of Google, provided with the SDK, and filter the B4A tag.

I agree that would be better a fixed size font for the log window.
Also I have noted now in 5.00/5.01 that sometime a LF is missing and some log strings are on the same line, for example

** Activity (main) Resume **~i:** Service (inboxcleaner) Create **~i:** Service (inboxcleaner) Start **

Looking the log with the Google Monitor tool I correctly see three separated lines

I'm having problems with v 5 log font - on my screen it is pretty small, and my eyes aren't what they used to be ... Fixed width is not my problem, but font size is.
