Setting font and font-size for PhpStorm IDE (menus and editor) on Linux

Using PhpStorm on Debian 7 'Wheezy' 64-bit, with Openbox window-manager. While in most of the other Linux applications the Openbox theme 'appearance' settings seem to take effect, but it appears to have no effect on PhpStorm. I found the fonts used in PhpStorm IDE (menus and editor) to be too large, and thus taking up far too much screen real-estate. I tried to go through the settings, but didn't find one that may have the effect of being able to control to fonts used. Is that indeed the case, or is there a way I might have missed.

Okay, found how to do it. I had to override the default font (against recommendation) then also change the editor font setting.
