Icon size not DPI-aware

Post by qtech » 17 Jun 2013, 19:36

Hi,

I am running a MacBook Pro with Retina screen. I use Bootcamp and Windows 8.
Altap Salamander v3.0 Beta 2 doesn't scale icons properly according to DPI-setting. (200%).

Has anyone found a way around it?

High-DPI support is better in Altap Salamander 3.0 (compared to versio 2.54) but is not complete. We have further improvements on our todo list.

Bumping this thread, because I just got a 4K monitor and now I have the tiny icons. Everything else (ie. text, Bottom Toolbar) seems to scale properly, although the program icon in the taskbar would look better if it was higher resolution.

What LCD monitor did you purchase? We need to purchase some high-res model for tests.

Well, this one is an Acer XB280HK. It costs about $200+ more than most similar-size/quality 4K monitors because so far it's the only 4K monitor to support G-SYNC, which is useful for gaming, so another choice might be better financially for non-gaming use. That said, this is a nice monitor and DPI-aware applications look fantastic.
