My 15.6 inch screen laptop has 3200 x 1800 resolution and it is hard to see some of the icons and tools. Is it possible to change the DPI scaling on the application?

If you're using a high resolution display and Justinmind icons appear very small, look for and launch this file and it will fix the issue:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Justinmind\Justinmind Prototyper[version]\JustinmindPrototyperHiDPI.exe

Hi Hassan,


1. Set your screen resolution to a lower setting. Currently 1920x1080 seems to be the most ‘normal’.


AND


2. From the screen resolution page, there is a setting for ‘Make text and other items larger or smaller’


a. Set the slider all the way to the left towards ‘Smaller’


b. Click Apply (this requires the user to log out and log back in)


Best regards.

I tried, and it still doesn't work. The menu headers are still at 3 point type.

Hi Roh,


Currently, there isn't any specific installer. The current Justinmind installer has two versions and there should be two shortcuts, one to the HighDpi version and one to the other.


Look for and launch this file:


C:Program Files (x86)JustinmindJustinmind Prototyper 7.3.0JustinmindPrototyperHiDPI.exe


Let me know how this works for you.


Best,

I use version 8.7.0 and there is no JustinmindPrototyperHiDPI.exe file at all. All system compatibility settings applied to JustinmindPrototyper.exe do not really help to solve the problem.


It's very annoying to use the app on hi-res screen like this...

Newer version of Justinmind should load the high res installer by default. Can you attach a screenshot of how the interface looks on your screen?

Sure, here you are. The UI in general looks and works well. But fonts and some icons on menus and panels are not crisp and clear.

It looks like the correct interface is loaded. Unfortunately it might be a little blurry due to the scaling.

Ok. When I set file params as shown on this screenshot, all fonts and icons become nice and clean but the overall drawing gets affected. When I move objects over the canvas it gives various funny glitches. Perhaps this is something you could fix further...
