The choice/selection boxes are so small that it is almost impossible to read the selected parameters. This is a source for errors or mistakes.

This is true for stock locations as per screen image below; this is also true for instance for the tax code box (when creating a supplier invoice;in this case the box is so small that it is impossible to select the "x" to delete the tax, as the "x" is hidden by the tax code description.

Is this behaviour configurable at user end?
