how to change general java gui settings?
Bram, not sure if this will work or not, but it's worth a try --
Make sure you are using 96 DPI or 120 DPI fonts. To set this, go to
System->Preferences->Appearance. Then, select Font tab and click the
"Details..." button. Then, make sure DPI is set to 96 or 120.
Again, not sure if this will help, but it may be worth a try.
My fonts (on the Fonts tab) are also all set to "Best Shape" and also
are all a font size of "10".
Hope this helps!
