I know this is a commonly used excuse for not doing something McNeel would rather not do, but in this case I think it’s a bit specious: If 4K support is going to be included in V6 anyway, how will V6 be delayed if the few simple extras needed for a more comfortable 4K experience were pulled ahead so they could be added to a V5 maintenance release?
What exactly would be on the exhaustive list of changes/additions needed to improve the 4K experience? I’m thinking:
a set of larger icons for all the toolbars
BTW, I have been using Rhino 5 on a MacBookPro Retina, which is pretty close to 4K, and a Dell 4K monitor with my desktop, and I don’t mind the small size of the largest icons. I need to adjust my mouse sensitivity and acceleration so I can hit them accurately, but I eventually got used to the small size. I’ve got lots of screen real estate for the viewports. And I’m not even a young guy with young eyes and young hand/arm muscle control.
