This actually looks like a bug in the low level code (graphapp).  The 
control is supposed to allow you to type in your own choice of font 
size, but because of what looks like a typo, it restricts choices to the 
ones in the list.

As others have said, you can set a value in the Rconsole file, but with 
this bug, it won't display properly.

Since this bug has been around for at least 7 years, I'm going to check 
the fix for it fairly carefully before I commit it, but I expect it to 
be fixed in the next release.

I may increase the list of sizes in the dropdown box at the same time.
