REQ: Bigger drop down arrow(s) for Quick search bar

Would it be possible to have these tiny arrows (up and down? shouldn't this be only down?) scalable?


No, it is not possible. The components such as text fields and boxes are part of Java platform (Mac Look and Feel). Their designers decide the arrow size is optimal and I respect that.

For a dropdown list I'd rather expect such a thing, with an easy-to-distinguish (= text size) arrow only down, not up and down (the up-arrow on the Quick search bar does not have any special function, that's a kind of illogical). Are you sure this is the right element or there isn't any more appropiate?

Mac users expect two arrows for combo boxes. Switch to Metal and Nimbus look and feel if you don't like two arrows.
