4K Screen Resolution

Postby nakinney » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:30 pm

I find the tool bar icons don't resize with the screen resolution. I'm using a 4K screen on a TV and the icons are so small the save is about the size of the letter 'e' in the word 'File' in the tool bar. Please resize the icons so they are usable.

I'd look at the properties for the shortcut you use to start Newsbin and see if you can get Windows to scale the whole application for you. I see it in Win10 anyway. It's in the compatibility section.

Until I replace the current GUI, you're probably stuck with it.

Using compatibility mode to scale worked. Thank you!

I got a 4K display last month and I have solved this problem with compatability mode. Newsbin is one of the last apps I use which doesn't use highdpi of Windows10. Would love to see newsbin in 4K. Do you have a timeline roadmap?
