The tabbed Notebook Bar has a host of display/usability issues on Windows 10:
1. Tabs are too small in height
2. Underlined Mnemonics add visual noise
3. Padding between text and border of tabs is too small
4. Not enough contrast between colors for currently active and inactive tabs
5. Buttons are poorly aligned, have no space between and are missing borders
Overall, the Notebook Bar looks cramped and noisy. Lack of contrast makes it difficult to see, which tab is currently active. These layout problems impact usability.
Tested on Windows 10 1809 with LO 6.2.5
Screen resolution: 4K (3840 x 2160) with 250% text scaling
Steps to Reproduce:

Tabbed Notebar on Windows 10 HiDPI
Also in Spanish, in a HiDPI touchscreen, in OpenOffice 18.104.22.168 and every version of 6.2.x i have tested.
The tab labels run together. This is not helped by the low contrast of the lines that separate the tabs.
Yes, it looks ugly without padding. What can we do, Sumit, Szymon?

In general ALL Notebookbars didn't use specific padding items, cause the reason is that I don't want to have .ui file specific settings. So if you can change the settings somewhere in the generic themes it will improve the NB but also ALL other ui elements.
If I would add paddings to each element in the .ui file it may work better, but I prefer that this can be solved somewhere generic.
5. I would love if someone can tell me what I have to do that the select thing will fill height.
