Description oldbob 2017-02-04 20:27:33 UTC
I changed the default font size to 20. Now text in many text boxes is clipped off at the top. 

To reproduce:

tool->options->fonts and colors. Change font size to 20.

tools->options->editor->language:C/Category:Formating; Notice that the style name is clipped at the top. Then try looking at the emacs or more emacs keyboard short cut lists, they will be clipped almost beyond readability. There are many examples of this problem. The frustrating part is how many places the UI does the right thing.

Comment/Personal appeal.

I use NetBeans because it is the ONLY ide I can find that does a good job of working with my personal vision problems. I would love to see it get even better. 

Thank you for this great IDE.
