Yep, it would be nice to have an HiDPI support for the editor.

Doesn't HiDPI just mean that a small screen can have a high resolution? What do you mean by support?

Rather than rely on scaling compatibility modes and absolute positioning it would need to support producing output at the native resolution. At the moment it doesn't do this and the built in scaling function breaks all of the GUI layouts when the HiDPI mode is activated internally.



Newer versions of Windows 10 seem to have better automatic scaling, but I've not tested it with this.

But supporting HiDPI is something that applications can do, to avoid the automatic scaling behaviour (which is sometimes incorrect and has different results depending on which version of Windows you have).
