feature request: change workspace view font size

After having some initial problems, it is possible to get OM looking good on high DPI
displays by changing the font for the patches, and setting the box scale factors in the preferences.

The last part of the jigsaw is the workspace view itself. If you’re like me and have
hundreds of files, folders, and all kinds of junk in your workspace ‘root’ view, trying to read this
on a HighDPI display is next to impossible, as you can’t change the font. It is worst when the display
is in list mode, which I find I use the most.

If it were possible to configure the font for the workspace view (like you can change the fonts elsewhere)
this would be seriously appreciated from an accessibility point of view, as with some patience, most of the other
bits of OM can be scaled through the preferences dialog. As far as I can see, only the workspace list view can not.

OM on Windows 10 itself is, a real achievement. I really like how it runs on this platform: it’s super fast and in general
an absolute joy to use. Thank you to the development team for all your efforts.
