Icons Are Very Small

Hi, first of all thanks for the great free product that is sourcetree.

I recently updated to version 4.1.2 on  and it seems my icons are tiny and the alert numbers on the top are almost unreadable, is this normal?

Anyone else having this issue?

I am on Big Sur 11.3.1 if that makes a difference

I couldn't find any settings for this apart from the one on the toolbar that can make the text even smaller which of course does not solve my issue :)

If there are other settings where would one find them?

Same for me, I'm on macOS 11.4 and the latest SourceTree update went back to the older design where NSToolbar icons are not right aligned like modern macOS apps but rather are spread throughout the top.

At the same time the icon images are tiny and icon labels are so tiny they are hard to see and read.

Please fix

I'm also experiencing the same issue. The UI looks very odd now.

I'm on Big Sur 11.4 and SourceTree v4.1.2. I think the smaller icons were introduced in v4.1 but it looks like something isn't working as expected rather than intentional.

Same here. The size is almost the same as in "Use small icons" mode.

Agreed, these are very small now

Admin, any update regarding to this? I need to get closer to see the number in the Commit button now, as screenshot by @Barry McMillan
