This very well may be an Eclipse issue, but when using STS on my retina display Mac I have issues with my fonts. I've updated my configuration per this Eclipse issue: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=382972 so that the fonts are no longer fuzzy. However, in most standard editors (java, XML, various custom editors like POM and Spring Bean), the fonts by default are huge. When I attempt to change them via the preferences pane, they do not persist reliably. I'm not blind, I just want my fonts to be normal Any insight on how to fix this is appreciated!
