Description

Hello,

System: Archlinux
Desktop: kde 4.14 (qt4)
Screen size: 15.4 inches
Screen resolution: 2880x1800
DPI value set: 192 ppi

Issue:
With a high DPI value set (necessary), Darktable does not resize severy fonts accordingly, including:
- Darktable name and version;
- stars, labels and drop-down menus in lightroom;
- tooltip displayed when doing something (exporting images for example);
- preview in darkroom mode (below the image);
- histogram informations on the histogram (darkroom mode);

It is also the case with several logos, including:
- Preference logo;
- Collapse Group Image logo (next to preference logo);
- Every presets logo;
- Reset parameters logo;
- Multiple instance action logo;
- On/Off logo for each module;
- Modules groups logos;

The Preference panel is impacted as well:
- each ticking box;
- drop-down lists;
- short-cuts and presets area;

I've attached multiple screenshots to show what I'm talking about.

This makes Darktable not easy to use on such a screen (and that's very unfortunate).

  • Status changed from New to Fixed

This is believed to be fixed in the development version, so the next release (1.6.0, sometimes later this year) should have it. In my limited local tests I can still see two issues though: sizes of checkboxen and the triangles in tree lists. I am not sure if that is us, a bug in GTK or the way I enforce high DPI on my regular monitor.
