VTune uses system fonts - so, you'll need to change your system configuration. AFAIK for KDE it is done via "System Settings - Application Appearance - Fonts".

Is VTune font size less than in other UI applications?

Here's one data point...

I'm using a trial version of VTune Amplifier XE 2017, on Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon Edition.  (I'm stuck with that desktop, so I'm just happy that VTune's GUI works at all.)

The system is a laptop with a high-DPI display, so with the current generation of display managers and apps, I sometimes have problems with very small fonts.  I had this problem with VTune's GUI as well.

I was able to make some of VTune's GUI's fonts larger by creating a file "~/.gtkrc-2.0", with this content:

style "user-font" {

    font_name = "DejaVu Sans 14"
}
widget_class "*" style "user-font"
gtk-font-name="DejaVu Sans 14"

Unfortunately, that had no effect on the primary pane that occupies most of VTune's window.  All of the fonts in that section remain almost unreadably small.

I have exactly the same issue as Christian : mint18.1 + hidpi

I also tried vtune 15 before, it works fine with HIDPI. Now with the latest version, hidpi support is dead, that's unbelievable...
