Bug Description

I would like to be able to increase the font of the pull-down menus that appear when editing books metadata because they have become very hard to read after upgrading to OX 10.9.

description: updated

You can increase the interface font size by going to Preferences->Look &
Feel and change the INterface font and restart calibre.

I did, but it changed only the main window (?) fonts, not the pull-down menus.

Increase it more, the pull down menu font sizes are derived from the
main font size.

I tried to change the fonts one step at the time up to Verdana 24 pt., but the pull-downs size remained unchanged.

Odd, must be something peculiar to Mavericks. I will look at this when I
get around to installing Mavericks.

I have made a change that I hope will fix it, try the next calibre
release, on Friday.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
