High DPI - outlook plugin

Just have a new laptop with a high DPI screen (3200x1800). All regular software renders fine on Win8.1, however the Todoist plugin does not scale. It is very small to read. Is there any setting I can change to improve useability?

Hello Erik,

Thank you for your report, we'll look into it. Please note that our plugin uses Internet Explorer to connect and shares IE's settings so you could try to enlarge IE's default font settings and see if it helps.

Best regards,

I agree. I am using Parallels on a Mac Book Pro which has a high res screen. The Todoist side bar comes up fine but the text size is maybe 50% of the text in Outlook making it unusable to my old eyes!

sorry for the late reply, I had some other more important stuff on my plate.

I added a screenshot https://www.dropbox.com/s/8474qkxlzfv4l0r/todoist.png. Look at the text sizes of 1. IE, 2. My outlook and 3. the todoist plugin.

I see the same thing in Outlook 2013 on my Surface. I'll try the IE text suggestion.

Hello -

I'm moving to a new, high-resolution screen as well and have found that the version downloaded today also results in very small (unusable) task list. Outlook and IE text size is appropriately sized (usable / readable) for the screen resolution.

What is the current work around? What are the specific steps do I need to do to make the size of the font in the Outlook Add-In readable?

I've seen a couple of threads here in support, but did not the definitive work around.

Thank you for great product (soon to be also visible on my high-resolution laptop).

Ditto for me on Windows with a high-dpi display.
