Because my previous JabRef install suddenly stopped working – something about Java and the registry, I uninstalled JabRef, updated Java, and reinstalled JabRef to v. 3.6. I use Win 10 Pro 64bit on a Dell XPS 13 w/ resolution 3200x1800.
Starting up JabRef v. 3.6 – argghhh.
- At startup, menu font is so big that menu items partially overlap! I dig into Options/Preferences/Appearance. The menu font is set to 36 pt (from past installation, or what?). I try to change it, but the bottom of the tab, including OK button, is below the bottom of the screen. NOT GOOD. OK – just by chance, I discover that by reducing the size of the JabRef window, the OK/Cancel button actually appear, but I can not see the bottom of the tab… in other words I cannot operate – or not even read – all menu items.
After some experimentation, I end up with font size 16, which give ok menu font size.
- Then I open a BibTeX database. Next problem… menu font is fine, but the database items are not readable!!! The font appears to be a couple of pixels tall!!! I cannot read the screen, even with a microscope!
How can I fix this?
