[All] Ultra Small Fonts, Widget Scaling fine


On my Thinkpad X1 Carbon running Ubuntu 18.10 (GNOME Shell) and display scaling set to 2X (in this case DPI is 96), all IntellJ products show very small fonts though the widget seems to scale nicely on that resolution.

If I manually increase the fonts the, it seems the widget scales to an acceptable levels (basically scaling twice ?)


Is there an environment variable to force specific scale settings ?


Hello Omer,

These articles describe possible ways to solve the problems with scaling https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/zooming-in-the-editor.html, https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001260010-Troubleshooting-IDE-scaling-DPI-issues-on-Windows

So probably the last option would be solution.

Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks a lot. I had to set export JAVA_OPTS='-Dsun.java2d.uiScale.enabled=false' in the environment and things are as I expect them to be.
