JavaDoc windows with too small parameter names

Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201504210001)
Java: 1.8.0_45; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.45-b02
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_45-b14
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; UTF-8; pl_PL (nb)

Names of the parameters and exceptions are too small in JavaDoc windows and they are hardly readable on higher resolutions. The font size should be the same as for the method signature.

Here's a sample of code and the screenshot of JavaDoc window.

     * The description of the method. This method does nothing.
     * @param value Input value, which will be returned intact
     * @return Simply the input value
     * @throws IOException Never
    public int method(int value) throws IOException {
        return value;
