Sorry to be such a bother, but I'm not getting the hang of how this
GUI programming works. Here what I did to try to change the fonts in
the Demo snap.

I executed Self using the Demo snap
I middle-clicked for "a shell"
I clicked on the top-right "E" button to show the Evaluator
I entered 'outlinerPreferences' in the Evaluator; highlighted it; then
clicked on "Get it"
I then had "in hand" the outlinerPreferences
I clicked on the setDemoFonts icon on the right of the slot
I changed some of the "size" values
I clicked on the setDemoFonts icon again to close the window
I opened the 'outlinerPreferences' Evaluator
I entered 'setDemoFonts'; highlighted it, then clicked on "Do it"

For my trouble, I received this message:

No 'ui2_textFiled' slot found in outlinerPreferences.

What did I do wrong?
