Screen snippet of tiny fonts that cannot be modified.

When I have a file open like "Main.axml" and I click on the properties tab, 
all the attributes have EXTREMELY small fonts. I cannot find a way to 
increase them.. CTRL ++ does not work, tools/options/fonts does not allow 
modifying them. Font looks like 8point or smaller. I have to mouse-over 
the attributes to see a tooltip which is much larger font size. VERY 
How can I increase the font sizes?

Looks like you are using an hdpi display. Some issues with high resolution displays were recently fixed. If you are using XS 4.0.8, can you try the latest version? (4.0.12). This might already be fixed.

I upgraded to 4.0.12 and that fixed that problem; however, a MUCH MORE SERIOUS PROBLEM has arisen because of the upgrade.  I CANNOT see my "Solution" tab.  I cannot pick modules to work on.  This makes the tool unusable.  Does anyone check this stuff out???  Very frustrating.  Where is my Solution tab?  Even when I select/deselect it it never shows.

Looks like your layout configuration file may have been corrupted. Please locate the following file:

C:\Users\<your user>\AppData\Roaming\XamarinStudio-4.0\Config\EditingLayout.xml

and attach it to this bug report. This will help diagnosing the issue. Then delete it. This should fix your problem.
