Eclipse on high screen resolution display [message #322598] Wed, 21 November 2007 11:06 Go to next message

Hi,

I installed Eclipse on a laptop with a high resolution screen -
1920x1200 at about 145 DPI. Most of the things look fine - GTK (on
Fedora 8) picked the right resolution and scales all the fonts
correctly. The annoyances that remained are that all the icons look tiny
and all dialogs seem too small.

Is there a way to tell Eclipse to use high resolution icons and to scale
windows according to the font pixel size?

Thanks,
Yuri

No, Eclipse (Platform and IDE) does not have a solution for icons for
different dpi.
For me, this is a problem, too. But -sadly- there is no plans to improve the
usability for high resolution screens:

I just bought a 3000x1800 pixel monitor laptop. Eclipse is totally unusable. Something's going to have to be done about this in the next couple of years. The big screens are on the way!

I'm experiencing exactly the same problem... I had to reduce the
resolution to 2000 :'(

For those of us who can't yet afford such a luxury, it would be fun to
see a screenshot at least ;)

I tested to install Eclipse on Macbook Retina with Windows 8.1 on Bootcamp. Eclipse is quite awful. Whereas Visual Studio renders perfectly Sad
