Question GUI: Trouble with fonts/Accesibility

Amounting to this:
I get recurring eyesight trouble (on/off) -- thus went to Preferences --> Look and feel, and changed font to Calibri [12pt] (my Windows XP interface is put to ClearType, Big Fonts, but Calibre GUI doesn't seem to reflect it).

The change gave me what is reflected in the attachment; i.e., nice for the library view, ENORMOUS for book details.

Thus, HELP needed:
  1. What did I do wrong?
  2. How to revert to default configuration?

Did you restart calibre?

I don't see anything wrong or inconsistent. The only way I know to revert to defaults also affects all saved settings. I too have changed my font size settings. I chose Ariel Narrow 13pt, see attached.

Good Luck.

dwanthny, compare font-sizes in:
your attachment: Rows and columns versus Right panel
my attachment: Rows and columns versus Bottom panel
Notice any difference in Font sizes? Because I do! (My eyesight again?)

Your font in the book details is probably a tad bigger than dwanthny's, but not that much bigger.
