There's a bug between the editor's default font size and the Options Dialog; in o.n.m.editor.settings.storage.fontscolors.CompositeFCS.getHardcodedDefaultColoring
defaultFontSize < 13 ? 13 : defaultFontSize
and in o.n.m.options.colors.SyntaxColoringPanel.getDefaultFontSize
if (s < 12) s = 12;
The simplest fix is to change the "12" to "13" to match the real font in use.
To see the problem:
- Starting with a clean userdir
- bring up the Fonts&Colors dialog,
Language: All Languages
Observe "Font: Monospaced 12"
But the current font is actually Monospaced 13
- press the "..." box on Font: Mono-12, and then click OK.
Observe the change in the font size in the Preview
now it is really Mono-12, it was Mono-13
There are other anomalies because of this discrepancy.
We were examining the code in settings related to it yesterday and we will attempt to have just one source of the default coloring fallback (so we will attempt to eliminate the hardcoded defaults from SyntaxColoringPanel).
Also the DEFAULT_COLORING should only be returned by FontColorSettings.getFontColors() and not by getTokenFontColors() (currently gFC() delegates retrieval of DEFAULT_COLORING to gTFC() which means that having a token or token category named "default" can lead to a strange behavior). We will fix that as well.

Doing "the right thing"!
(mentioning bug 200450 with some discussion about these topics)
Here are changes mentioned by Mila: http://hg.netbeans.org/jet-main/rev/6b807db39c97
Here is fix for regression bug - default was in highlighting panel not syntax panel. Also the default font size is at least 13 in clean build. http://hg.netbeans.org/jet-main/rev/34c5dac5c3cd
