Heli-X 8 on Windows 10 and high DPI

Post by lucag » 26 Mar 2019 00:04

Hello,

I'm running Heli-X on Windows 10 with a High DPI display (4K), and the text is virtually unreadable:
heli-x-hdpi.PNG
heli-x-hdpi.PNG (173.9 KiB) Viewed 252 times
The application seems to ignore Windows' DPI settings. Changing DPI settings for the java.exe that is part of the distribution (by right-clicking on it, choosing "Compatibility", and then "Change high DPI settings") somewhat fixes the problem with the font size (although characters look slightly blurred), but then the only one quarter of the screen is shown on the display, so that's a complete no-go.

I know there's an option for changing the font size (Option | Font Size), and "L" is already selected.

Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks,
--L.

We have now a first 4k ready implementation as beta version. If you want to test, send an email.
