Increase font size on 4k monitor ?
« on: November 03, 2016, 11:19:14 AM »
Hi,
I have just purchased Universe Sandbox 2 and I am running it on 31" Monitor with 4096x2160 resolution. Any information on the Screen is very difficult to read, because fontsize is very small. Is there any way to increase font size ?
Thank you
Bruno

Not yet, but it will be possible to scale the user interface in future updates, once we implement our new system. We hope to have this ready for Alpha 20.

Sorry for the trouble in the meantime. Your best option is lowering the resolution if it's difficult to see.

How odd.
Normally, when you increase the resolution of a screen, the text, and/or details, become much more clear. Which means text is easier to read and details are easier to see. But not in this case. Why is that?

Because the letters are a certain number of pixels tall and wide, and at higher resolutions (with a monitor not physically much larger) those pixels are smaller which makes the letters smaller.
