High Resolution Display


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.

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.

Hi Brent,

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

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