    4K vs. 1080p

    I have noticed a that when I run the apps I created on a 1080p monitor on a 4K monitor, the layout changes and makes the app pretty much useless. Actually it appears that it is primarily the font size that changes, making it hard to read and cutting off letters. Has anyone else encountered this and is there a work around?

    You can try adjusting the scaling if you are using Windows 10

    This thread discusses how to resolve the issue.

    Setting the DPI Scaling to 100% solved the problem, but now the app text is very small on the monitor. Will they be adding support for DPI scaling in future releases of Lianja?

    Question: if you open Chrome and go to Google News, and have your browser set for 100%, is the size of the font for the stories (not the headlines) noticeably different than what you see in your app?

    Looks pretty close, probably 20% difference.

    And you're saying that on a non-4K monitor the difference is less or non-existent?

    If you look at the buttons you will notice that the text is ran off the button. On a 1920x1080 display, which the program was written, you can see the whole word on the button. You will also see where there are dots in the fields because the text is too big for the fields. All the text is visable on a 1920x1080 Yes, that can be resized, but then it won't fit the screen of the 1080p unless the layout is changed as it takes the whole width of a 1920x1080 monitor. I have another program with several headings and such that are all messed up and cut off because of the larger font size.

    Ah, I see. I don't have a horse in this race, just trying to learn. So, if you set your monitor to 100% instead of 150, how are things then?

    Also try placing a text file in \lianja\bin called qt.conf which contains.
