I am using Wine 1.4.1 to run MS Word 2010 in Ubuntu 12.10. Yet, the font size and menus in Word are just too small. Have a look:

Is there a way for me to change the Word font size and menu sizes? I.e. the fonts of the system?

I tried following these instructions (to no avail), and also gave a look into these (though the problem is very different).

There is a know FIXED bug in wine for the menu's being too big, maybe this will help.
