Look in the Preferences for "Show File Translation Errors" (corresponding
to the ShowErrors setting in the maker.ini file). According to the
online manuals:
* ShowErrors determines if error messages are displayed in the console
  window when they occur.

I believe that turning it off means that the Console window isn't opened
at all.

However, I would first of all try to figure out why you get messages
for a file and try to solve the underlying problem (missing fonts?).
