You can change the size of fonts for future windows opened by opening the terminal and using:

xrandr --dpi 96

For higher resolution (1920x1080) monitors try using:

xrandr --dpi 144

I use this on programs that do not implement HiDPI scaling themselves. Although it may not explain your problem it may solve it. Or it may not… YMMV.
