High DPI displays

Continuing the discussion from V6 User Interface:

What I would like to see is larger icons in the Workspace Editor, allowing the user to scale their button size as they see fit. Currently I see this, with sizes up to 32x32 pixels.

I initially thought we were going to need that too (or go to a vector format for non-standard sizes). The icons in V6 are automatically resized under different DPI settings and the closest larger size icon is always chosen as the source for resizing. This turned out to look pretty darn good under the set of tests I ran.

In other words, if you are using “medium” sized buttons but have a really high DPI setting the 32x32 icon will be used instead and it will be sized to what is deemed a “medium” size.

Ok, thanks. That sounds good!
