Here is a screenshot of the Xfce appearence settings in 18.04 (left) compared to 16.04 (right):

screensot showing fonts

As you can see, the same font, font size, hinting, and DPI is selected.

In the bottom right is an overlay of the two showing that the word "Style" renders approximately 1 pixel taller and wider on 18.04. Since it is only 10 pixels tall to begin with this represents a 10% increase in size.

In addition, some other fonts render smaller in 18.04 than they do in 16.04 (not pictured, but they do.)

Why does this happen?
