Description

See attached images for a comparison between the old and new menu bar labels.

I'm pretty sure the difference is caused by Qt not using the system font in macOS. Either way the Wx labels definitely look a lot better.

AFAICT the font should be the same. The only difference is probably the font size. Letting MayImilae confirm

I think you’re right on it just being the font size. If that’s the case could this issue be accepted for that reason?

I think the Wx labels look better than Qt but maybe you don’t agree.

While I'd say the wx labels look slightly better. I just don't think it's worth introducing another OS specific hack.

On a higher DPI display (1440p, the screenshots for the original report came from a 1080p display) the menu bar text looks pretty blurry, much worse than the text visible anywhere else in Dolphin. I'd imagine on 4K it's even worse.

See attached image.

That is the same screenshot as before.
