High DPI support on Windows


I am using the following 4 Todoist experiences on Windows. This is on a Surface Pro 3 running at high DPI (150%).

The following experiences do not work with HighDPI and things are tiny:
Outlook Addin
Todoist Windows App

The following look correct
Gmail Extension
Google Chrome Extension

Can you guys look into why this is?

Hello Omar,

Most likely that's due to the fact that Windows can handle high DPI scaling in a browser, but not in an app or add-in, even though both are also based on Chromium.

We will soon add support for high DPI displays on our end which should solve this issue.

I love the experience I've had with todoist and I'm getting ready to buy a premium account. One of the only hesitations I've had with making the investment is the lack of support for high DPI displays. The Windows app and Outlook add in is currently unusable on my laptop and that is where I would primarily use the service. I'm excited to hear that an update is coming but was wondering if there was a date set for an update. Thanks.

Thanks for adding high DPI scaling support. I just got my Surface Pro 3, and am in need of a way to actually read my todoist!

I just wanted to put in my "+1" to this request. I just got a new Dell XPS 13 which has a HDPI screen. It runs 3100*1800px on a 13" screen and the Todoist text is... blindingly small.
