Can anybody suggest a way of configuring the size of Netbeans tabs? My Surface Pro 3 has a very high resolution screen (2160*1440). Many application, including Netbeans, are almost unusable on this when they run with their standard setting since fonts and icons are often minute. I don't want to drop the resolution on the Surface so I usually manage to fix the problems by means of configuration in the packages.

With Netbeans I have no problems making the editor fonts look good but the editor tabs are small and the Navigator tabs are tiny. I've tried all ways to fix this but no success. Suggestions would be very welcome.

I just installed NetBeans and ran into the dpi scaling issue on my Surface Pro 3.

I had the same problem with Photoshop and ended up finding this solution to the problem, which involves a registry change and adding a .manifest file to the same directory as the .exe

I tried it on NetBeans and it worked pretty well. At least the icons are visible and menus readable, etc.

Hope it helps!

Note: I used the photoshop.exe.manifest file from the end of his blog post and renamed it netbeans64.exe.manifest

Thanks beachmg - seems to have worked for others, but sadly not for me. I note in the comments on the Adobe solution that success specifically with the Surface pro 3 seems patchy. I've managed to get by in Netbeans by increasing the font size.

Other apps (eg Blender) have a cgi adjustment. It would be really nice if Netbeans developers would pick this up.
