#17358 4coder window and fonts too small in Windows 8 high-dpi screen
2 weeks, 1 day ago Edited by Robert Herman on Feb. 6, 2019, 11:48 a.m. Reason: Initial post

I love this editor!
However, on my Windows 8.1 high-dpi screen, 4coder is too small to use. I've tried compatibility modes, etc., but no luck. Any advice on where I can find it in the source and fix it? Thanks!

I have a surface book that has the same problem.

There are two reliable ways to fix it,
1. In 4Coder's startup hook, look at the monitor DPI, do some maths and set the font size correctly
2. Start 4Coder with -f 28 on the command line, and just tweak the number until it looks about right

Personally I went with option 2.

Thanks! I did the same command line start, and it works like a charm!
