Because you're using Elements, Vendimion, you don't have access to the Engraving Options dialog, so you can't change the default appearance of chord symbols in your project. Sorry.

If by "appearance" one means typographic appearance, rather than a particular style of chord symbol representation, then some user choice is possible at present. You can select a default text typeface and font (weight), which is then used for chord symbols. You can also (from the Bottom Panel) set a custom scaling for any selected chord symbols in the score - equivalent (near enough) to selecting font size.

But I look forward to the Elements update Daniel mentioned above to ease some of the typographic restrictions on commonly used text items.
