Good point :-)

I always set my dpi to "96" and use by default a Tahoma font sized at 8
pt (quite small) but for this specific case I can can try to make things
even smaller... I hope by changing this also affects to the windows and
buttons size and not just the text.

Sadly, that's not present anymore in gnome-shell ;-( but there's
something at the gnome-tweak-tool ("Typography → Scaling factor") which I
have set to "1.0". Reducing it to "0.7"... does the trick, I now can see
the whole window!!! :-D

Thanks a bunch, mate!
