Need a "How to" for DPI

• Sep 1, 2020 - 16:20

A how to and maybe a FAQ pointed to it would be useful for people who have problems with windows (like style) being too big. It would be nice if someone with a better understanding of this, especially across the different platforms, would do this. Sending links to the command line manual page isn't the best way in my opinion.

But also, the fact that setting or unsetting the environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR might solve it for some people. Unfortunately, all systems are different and there is no getting around a bunch of trial and error. Would be nice for someone who has access to lots of different machines running different OS's and different monitors to be able to put together some sort of guide to the most likely scenarios.

That was my point. I do realize one fix does not fix everyone problem in almost any situation but this is a fix that comes up often enough send the user a link (like no sound) will give them a starting point and fix most of the people problems.

There is someone right now that is the typical user who doesn't even realize there is a command line option in Windows that would benefit from such a link.
