How to increase JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse font size in Mac OSX

I typically use JBoss Developer Studio since it has all of the JBoss plugins already installed.  All of the plugins are available for plain Eclipse, but it's nice to have them already packaged together.

I recently downloaded the Mac version, and the font sizes on a Mac are tiny.

This Mac OSX Hints post contains the instructions for Eclipse.

It is a little different for JBoss Developer Studio :

  • locate the "JBoss Developer Studio.app" located in <>/studio/JBoss Developer Studio.app
  • "control" + click on the "JBoss Developer Studio.app" and choose "Show Package Contents"
  • this will open a folder "Contents"
  • open Contents/MacOS/jbdevstudio.ini
  • remove the line, "-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.smallFonts"
  • restart JBDS
Happy coding!
