Re: High DPI support in Zim


Thanks Marco,

I changed widget size to ICON_SIZE_DIALOG and now it is just like before.

It may be an idea to use Unicode checkboxes (☐☑☒) just in the way as regular bullet points are used. Then it will be automatically resized with font.

I have tried to find where is indentation and triangle in page index are defined, but didn't manage. If anybody knows, it would be nice to make a quick fix there too.

Hi all,

I wonder how is possible to configure Zim to support High DPI screens?  I
currently have one, and most of stuff is working correctly except for the
following things:
1) checkboxes are very small and barely visible
2) other icons are very small too
3) dialog boxes (like adding link) are too small by default (after each
restart I resize them again and again)
4) arrows in the left pane are barely visible and indentation there is very
5) tabs in the content are are too small too

Item 5) can be easily fixed by changing pixel indentation constant in
Item 1) is very important to me and I have tried to replace images of
checkboxes with bigger onen, but that didn't change anything.
For me Items 1) and 4) are the most important.

So I wonder if there any easy fixes for now to cope with that?  And also
regarding changes in code, is it possible to change without breaking the
program architecture?  I would be happy to contribute to Zim.

Best regards,
Eugene Petkevich
