High Resolution Display

EL

I've read a few other posts about Todoist not being compatible with high-resolution screens and the plugin using microscopic fonts. Do we have an ETC for when this will be resolved? Some of these requests went back to last year. With more and more laptops coming with high resolution displays, this "bug" is quite problematic and makes Todoist unusable. The solution shouldn't be to adjust the resolution when it's the only program I'm using which now has this issue.

Hi Evan,

I can not give an ETA at this time. Though I do know it's being worked on and is something we do want to improve.

Regards,
Brendon.

Text in Outlook on Surface Pro 3 so small it's almost unreadable.

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 don't need a released solution or an update to the product - i'll work with editing configuration files, registry etc.

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

Thank you for great product.

Regards,

Hi Brent,

Unfortunately, there's exactly no workaround for this yet. We just have to wait for the fix. :-(

Clyde

Bummer. Oh well, add me to the list of people waiting for the fix.

Any news on this? It seems like all the other programs I am using have finally adapted for a high resolution screen. Just waiting for Todoist.

As suggested previously, why not consider an alpha release simply to abate some of the issue? If this feature is not using the Windows scaling functionality, something is presumably hard-coded somewhere.

If in a config file, let us edit it locally (just a little help on where and how).

If hard-coded, please simply hard-code an exe with a 1.5x or 2.0x font size - this will not solve the problem (implement it elegantly using Windows/DPI/Scaling), but it will give us a so-called quick'n dirty temporary solution.

Again, no need to implement this correctly for all future resolutions, just something simple and workable as a temporary solution.

Please...
