If you are using 4k you should note that the font / window sizing is
partially dependant on the look and feel you have chosen. If it is a system
look and feel then it will take the scaling from the os. If it is a non
system look and feel then there is no scaling applied and you need set this
yourself, it is a -D parameter. I can tell you the exact settings if you
need to know more.
