Theshold window button fonts too big for Mac with Java 1.8 JRE?

Bill Christens-Barry-2
Hi,

I've downloaded and am exploring a recent version of ImageJ (1.51m32) that includes the Java 1.8 JRE (1.8.0_101) on a Mac with 16 GB RAM and running OS 10.11.6 (Sierra).

I've found that the labels on the bottom row of buttons in the "Threshold" window are too big for the buttons. As a result, those buttons show the oversize and thus unreadable text as "...". I've tried using the Edit>Options>Fonts... menu item to reduce the size of this text, but this evidently has no effect. When using this ImageJ version with Java 1.6 things behave properly.

How should I try to resolve this issue? I've thought to try upgrading Java to v1.8 system wide rather than using the JRE that accompanied the ImageJ download; would that be a reasonable next step?

Thanks.

Bill Christens-Barry

I do not see this problem on my Mac with ImageJ 1.51m32, Java 1.8.0_101 and macOS 10.12.3 Sierra.

Thanks, Wayne. I purged Java, reinstalled ImageJ with the Java 1.8 JRE, and restarted my computer with the result that the problem I described disappeared. Am now happily thresholding ...
