for people with eye sight issues blurry fonts can be quite problematic. is one of the reasons I stay away from wayland and I am stuck with X11.

since hidpi is here to stay may need a proper solution.

I have no clue about other platforms, but on Linux, I've been successfully using Wayland + GNOME's fractional framebuffer scaling for a while now. No other configuration needed. Fonts are a little bit blurry, but for me, that's way better than the alternative.

The Arch Wiki has a great article on HiDPI support on Linux:;!!DZ3fjg!vFRak-N6QSRBxQ6AwVyCONxr64utr_3Hjlc8wTGNSQQuLK7C9ZdQR_m13I9uemP7Iw$ <;!!DZ3fjg!so-xpP9oUeQhI0xTkBaCiUvZ0_b4dqD0YuuBZI6h9V9xY_SEGtcbeXogv1sS2gjj3g$>

As somebody with poor eyesight I would very much appreciate it if this feature was added in future versions.

Best, Miro

This is just the old problem: VMD fonts on the GUI are way too small when displayed on a high DPI screen. Is there a working solution now? Or has this been resolved in the latest 1.9.4 beta version? Thanks.
