Change Netbeans System Font Size

Here is another example of someone trying to make me go blind. I could not find a way to change the font size of the system controls and menu's in Netbeans. I have been doing my testing in a Windows Virtual machine using VMWare Fusion for the Mac. Well the tiny fonts used for the Project tab and other controls was driving me crazy.

Well it turns out if you go into c:\program files\netbeans 6.0\etc\netbeans.conf you can add the following parameters to the command line that launches the app:

--fontsize 14

That seems to fix things up. Now if I could just change the font family too, I'd be in business.

Update 1/11/13: For more detailed information see my updated post.
