New to eclipse. Using 2020_03 on a 2K monitor, and fonts are small.
Searches found settings in Window>> preferences>>basic>>textFont and that changes alot. And found a Header Font somewhere that helps too.

But the tree to the left - Package Explorer, and the Properties panels are still very small - 9pt? I need about 12pt. I've searched the whole list and can't find it.

Any pointers to where these fonts are set so I can stop squinting? ;)

The whole interface is awesomely functional. Great job folks.
I'm beginning to learn WindowBuilder layouts. Moving here after years of Qt and finally gave up on their Deployment or Non-Deployment in favor of Java for Windows / Linux.

I have a feeling there is no control over this font. The Tree widget is a native widget and will use the same font (by default) as is used everywhere else on the OS. So on Windows, for example, you can choose to show larger fonts in general and the font used by the Windows Explorer is the same one used by the Package Explorer view.
