Example fonts under windows 10 with scaling

With JMeter 3.2 on Windows 10 with Windows Scaling set to 225% on a 4K 15.6" screen, text panels like BeanShell or Log Viewer are unreadably small.  

I didn't have any luck trying to force larger font sizes with Metal; none seemed to affect the Log Viewer.

The UI looks otherwise reasonable, and I'm using setting these settings in user.properties:

jmeter.hidpi.mode=true
jmeter.hidpi.scale.factor=2.0
jmeter.toolbar.icons.size=48x48
jmeter.tree.icons.size=48x48

You must change theses properties on HiDPI screen for the fonts (in jmeter.properties or user.properties)

# Change the font on the (JSyntax) Text Areas. (Useful for HiDPI screens)
#jsyntaxtextarea.font.family=Hack
#jsyntaxtextarea.font.size=14


For example:
jsyntaxtextarea.font.family=Hack
jsyntaxtextarea.font.size=28

That works, thanks, but is it documented anywhere? I don't see it in the user manual for hidpi

Thanks. Doc bug fixed.
