Re: High DPI support in Zim
The checkboxes should be resizable with the hack in the message Marco
referred. If it does not show, just try an integer pixel size. Could make
this an option in style.conf.
Using unicode checkboxes is attractive but does not make the checkboxes
stand out properly.
The index pane rendering (4) is really in the Gtk theming, not zim specific
at all I think.
Dialog sizes should be remembered, but apparently this fails in some cases.
Probably all the things you mention are fixable, but hard for me to give
specific instructions as I can not play around with a high DPI display
