Operating system: Arch Linux
Graphics card: NVIDIA GTX 980

Blender Version
Broken: Blender 2.90.0 Stable Release
Worked: I'm not sure if this has ever worked correctly but it looks ugly.

Short description of error

When zooming in and out of the node viewport, the text keeps changing its size making it look like it's jumping all around. I think the view should only zoom in and out without ever changing the text's size.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Add a principled BSDF node and then zoom in and out.

This seems to be an old problem.
As far as I know, each font has its variant for each size.
Depending on the zoom, the variant for the specific size is chosen.
But apparently, this transition could be smoother.

I'm not sure if it's a bug, but it's worth investigating.
