Some UI text still very small on HiDPI display
« on: October 24, 2020, 04:49:35 pm »
Hi all,

I'm excited to be upgrading to 20.03 on Linux.

Part of the release notes mention HiDPI improvements -- and the UI does look great -- but some of the text is still tiny. Attached is a screenshot. The 'File' 'Edit' etc items at the top are the normal, readable size on my screen and they change size appropriately when I force different DPI settings in .Xresources. The editor tab titles and project tree are too small.

Is there a configuration option to increase the size of those text items?

What is the wxGTK you're using and what toolkit are you using (gtk2 or gtk3)?

I'm not super sure how to check, but the package for codeblocks that I'm using lists wxGTK 3.0.5.1 and GTK3 as dependencies.

Help -> Abour -> Information list everything.

Currently GTK3 is not well tested. I've tried to fix as many HiDPI issues I've found on it, but it wasn't easy. I'll do some work on the GTK3 side sometime in the future.

I grabbed the 20.03 source and built it just to make sure I'm able to, and it appears to have worked. So if I can test any changes, let me know!

You can try building against wx-trunk/wx-master/wx-main to see if the new version of wx has fixed something.
Probably most of these are wx problems, but I have to spend time to debug them. It is not the top priority currently, so I don't know when I'll do it.
