I forgot to mention that I tried winecfg/graphicstab/DPI. It enlarges the content of the prog (like the written text in notepad) but not the menu..

There must be some way to define the font type and size the menu displays. Didnt found much in the documentation too. 

Maybe it is related that I use the ttf-fonts from the Unix installation. The ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts directory is empty. But in notepad I can change to all these Unix available fonts, so wine is able to access it. They should also somehow be available to the menu. 

Thats strange.
