Increasing Label Font Size For Retina and 4K Screens
« on: April 29, 2016, 01:28:52 PM »
I'm having minor a minor issue using US2, simply the label font is too small on high-res displays.
It there any workaround?

I know it seems like a minor issue, but with 4K becoming the standard TV resolution and laptops and tablets going "retina" for years it's starting to become an encumbrance (I have 4 machines all with high-dpi screens) and has been pointed out by my family and scout troop when I was showing off US2 to them.

I guess there is, or should be, a long term road-map that includes high-dpi settings, but failing that a very simple label-font-size options would make US2 me much easier to wow people with.

Sorry, there is no solution for this right now. The good news is that we've been rewriting the user interface so that scaling up for higher solutions will be possible.

We hope to have this ready for Alpha 20, which should be released in the next few months.

We're still working on Alpha 19, but you can try out a preview version, as someone pointed out in another thread. More info and instructions here: http://universesandbox.com/blog/2016/04/alpha-19-preview/
