Cyberduck: Support Windows display scaling

Created on 31 Jul 2015  ·  24Comments  ·  Source: iterate-ch/cyberduck

After installing Windows 10 on a 11.6 inch laptop with 1920x1080 resolution, the Windows display setting is set to 150%.(In Windows 8.1 it was 125% by default.)

But whether it is 125% or 150%, Cyberduck looks extremely blurry without touching any settings, hurtful for the eyes even.

By setting it to 100% it is no longer blurry but extremely tiny. Please support proper Windows scaling.

I would rate this Issue Major Severity (S2), High Priority (P2), rather than Enhancement,
a major reason I haven't yet donated or been able to recommend CD.
Why has it not been addressed in all that time?

Will have to look into EnableWindowsFormsHighDpiAutoResizing.

I would also very much hope for this feature! Icons and menu text are blurry when I use Cyberduck. My display scaling on Windows 10 is 225%.

Is there any hope of getting hiDpi support in the future?

Will this ever happen?

I have been using a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with a 13inch 3200 × 1800 screen for 5 years now. Would be nice to use Cyberduck finally without a blurry interface...

When this enhancement happens, I will happily buy Cyberduck from the Windows 10 store.

Is there a way to vote for this ticket?

If there was then this would certainly get my vote, it would be greatly appreciated if this was implemented.

We'd like to implement WinForms HDPI Scaling, though Cyberduck is quite constrained:

  • There are a ton of custom controls that need to be updated for High DPI to work <- obsolete by last
  • Cyberduck is limited to .NET Framework 4.8 maximum, as there is currently no way of getting IKVM to run on anything other than .NET Framework <- this blocks any new features with High DPI scaling
  • There are plans of reworking the UI and migrating away from WinForms entirely, which takes time <- this would make the first one obsolete

Unfortunately Microsoft does make it sound like "it just works™", but reality proves to be quite the opposite.

I complained about a high-resolution related problem (font scaling for hi-res monitor) and the thread (11900) got closed because it duplicates this thread?? How??? My CyberDuck screen is perfectly sharp, it just doesn't accommodate font scaling. Is anyone planning to fix that?

Windows scaling is not just blurry display. Font scaling is also part of the _same_ problem. Likewise layout. etc.
Windows originated long before high DPI devices. Consequently, high DPI display support is an evolving mess.
It manifests differently in different systems, different Windows versions, and different applications.
