Icons in 2017.3 much bigger, so some icons not reachable anymore

Answered

Today I upgraded to PhpStorm 2017.3 for Mac. Always great to have a new version of my favorite IDE!

What's not so great: the icons in the main toolbar are much bigger than in 2017.2. Consequently the icons don't fit into the availabe horizontal space anymore, so some are lost behind the right side of my screen.

Please add an option to control the diplay size of the icons, because this is a great nuisance!

Sorry, solved already. In the settings for Appearance the Override default fonts option was activated. After disabling that, all was well.

I confirm too. I've upgraded Idea to 2017.3 and I've noticed that icons are become bigger everywhere than 2017.2.  Override default font option has already been disabled.

Kernel:  4.13.12-1-ARCH
Screen size: 15.6''
Screen resolution: 4K (3840x2160)

Today, after upgrading to 2018.1 for Mac, I ran into the same problem once again. This time however I can't save myself by disable "Override default fonts", because it's already been deselected.

As a consequence of this I can't change my main toolbar anymore, because there is no empty space available on the toolbar to rightclick upon and change the toolbar. And icons which were well in reach in the previous version of PhpStorm all of a sudden are not in sight anymore.

Why oh why does PhpStorm increase the size of icons after each update? Please fix this!

It would be great if you could provide some data to work with.

We would appreciate:

- a screenshot illustrating the issue;

- your idea.log collected shortly after an IDE restart;

I'm having a similar issue with PyCharm. In PyCharm 2017.3 icons, buttons, dropdowns, UI fonts, etc are all smaller (and take up much less screen real estate) than in PyCharm 2018.1. See the two screenshots below.

2017.3

2018.1

I'm not sure what a good/appropriate way to attach my log files so for now I'll just post the lines that look like the most obvious relevant differences.

I have the opposite problem.

My font and icons were the good size in 2017.3, and now in 2018.1, the font is the same, but the icons are smaller.

In 2018.1, if I set the option "Override default fonts" and put a size of 14, I get the correct size of icons but the text is too big.

Is there any way to fix this ?

Left : 2017.3, Right : 2018.1 : Both without option "Override default fonts"

Left : 2017.3,  Right : 2018.1 with option "Override default fonts" and size = 14
