How do I change the font used in the Message Lookup Display?

By default, the Message Lookup Display uses a Courier font for displaying the details of selected messages. Although the font used in the display is not configurable via the user interface, it can be configured using the registry. To do this, all you have to do is set the following registry keys to the font name and size (in points) you wish to use:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Riverblade\Visual Lint\Settings\Displays\Warning Lookup\Font Family
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Riverblade\Visual Lint\Settings\Displays\Warning Lookup\Font Size

We have created a registry export file which will do this for you (for Consolas 10 point) without having to fiddle around in the registry editor. Feel free to download it and modify to your preferred font settings.
