That doesn't tell us what the actual screen resolution is though. At any
rate, Rev uses font inheritance for most of its stacks, and that's based
on the font size set in the Home stack. Try this in the message box:
set the textsize of stack "home" to 14
Then open the dictionary and see if it looks different. Other stacks
that don't have their own size specifically set will inherit the size
you put in Home as well. If the above works, you can set it up to happen
automatically. Since the home stack is locked and the size is set by a
script in there, you'll need to make a little plugin that issues that
command after the IDE starts up. You can set your plugin to either
respond to a Rev message, or just run on startup and then close itself.
Or if you have any custom backscripts that routinely run, just put the
command in there instead.
By the way, I was running Ubuntu last night and I didn't see any font
size problems. I suspect my resolution isn't the same as yours, but you
don't say what you're running at.
