Austin Stephens commented on NETBEANS-346:
------------------------------------------

Interesting... Changing the font from the default monospace to Lucida Sans 
Typewriter fixes the issue for some reason. We should still fix the issue for 
the default monospace font though. Maybe you could ask some more Mac users to 
figure out why it happens.

> Tabs, characters, and the right Margin don't line up

> When the Right Margin is set at 80 chars, it is drawn at 8*2* chars. This is 
> annoying because I have a 1440x900 screen that I split vertically in to two. 
> This results in two editing areas that are about 80 chars wide. I could see 
> the margin line in both editors when scrolled all the way to the left. Since 
> Netbeans (9.0 beta) is now drawing them at char 8*2*, it is not possible to 
> size those editors so I can see the line in both windows and it is driving me 
> crazy.
> This is a first world issue at the moment, but you might find code coming 
> from mac programmers coming in two or more chars too wide in the Netbeans 
> source code.
