Need tiny fonts and unlimited console output

In most ways AppCode seems much better than XCode, but in XCode I can make stripchart graphs like this in the console:

Such stripcharts are very useful for sensor data, for example.  The reason that this works so much better in XCode than AppCode boils down to two things:

  1. In XCode I can set the console font size as low as 2; in AppCode the smallest I can make it is 6, and even then it sometimes resets to 8.
  2. In XCode I can accumulate many thousands of lines of console output (limited by available memory), whereas AppCode quickly starts throwing away older lines.


Is there any chance that changes could be made to accommodate this kind of use of the console?
