I really appreciate it.

I wonder if the change you made, also resolved that when you change the font, this also affects the header row of the data sheet, as before, it remained with the same font of the system configuration.

Thank you very much.

Well it's no big deal, so I pushed a change implementing this.

     I disagree.

     Customize the font of the application is essential when working on a software similar to a spreadsheet. Also do not think it's better to have to change the system font to improve the display of content by using PSPP.

     "Typically I work with a monospaced font, as I find the most logical use when setting numerical fixed column widths, and is a bit inconvenient to have to change the font preferences every time I open a new file."

     As mentioned "Hugo Alejandro", some users opt to use monospaced fonts for better adapt to the options offered by PSPP or a font that fits better numerical content vs label content.

     In any case, remove the option to configure the fonts would be a negative for PSPP.

     I'm skeptical whether this is a good idea.  In fact, I'm not sure why we even have
     a fonts dialog in PSPP.  Normally, user preferences like font size are chosen by the
     desktop environment and applications respect the prefered sizes.
