Size of Todoist in Windows 8.1

Is there any way to increase the size of Todoist in 8.1 Windows program. I am using the Surface Pro 3 and you can barely see the tasks font. Thanks

All responses

Hi Jim,

Unfortunately, we can't set a different font size for it but our developers are hoping to address this problem with high resolution displays in a future update.

Need this update quick guys. With the Surface Pro 3 becoming a serious contender for laptop/tablet users it will be critical to ensure a usable windows 8 app.

As a new surface pro 3 owner this would be a nice win.

Surface Pro 3 user, Todoist is just unusable within Windows 8.1 desktop app.

Any idea on how long we have to wait for this? The desktop app is unusable on my surface pro 3 so for now I have to using the web client.

There is another and longer thread on this:
https://todoist.com/Support/show/31658/

Back in April it was something they looked to fix in the "near future".

I guess the devs are too busy redesigning a perfectly good Android app, linking to Android gear watches hardly anybody has and dreaming up new extensions to Karma reporting.

There is a great need to make what they have really solid and not add little gizmos and tweak this or that. For me that comes down to a Windows app with text big enough to read and proper 2-way sync with Google Calendar. They say they are committed to doing these things but they don't commit effort.

Please solve it as It is imposible to use it in Surface

Same issue here, my Surface Pro 3 has a *really* high resolution, Todoist is tiny and unscaled!

Wunderlist pulls this one off perfectly, having a Win Store App, but it's too simple for me! Stuck between a rock and a hard place...

I have also just recently started using Wunderlist. I am going to attempt to use it for a month and see if I can make it work with my workflow. It is just hard to go away from Todoist as there are so many great features that Wunderlist is lacking.

I recently read on another thread that Todoist had lost their Windows developer(s) and that has been the delay in getting a windows app with the high dpi resolution but I don't know if there is any truth behind that.

If I don't see any movement on this they are going to be making my decision for me to not renew my premium subscription...

It seems ridiculous that we have been posting about this for nearly 6 months and nothing has come from it. I don't understand why it's taking this long for you to take care of users that are obviously asking for a fix to a problem that makes your application nearly unusable. It is this kind of thing that makes customers leave a company. This needs to be a priority because it's extremely frustrating as a devoted user not being able to properly orient my tasks. I hope you guys are listening because it may be time to start looking for a new task manager if this doesn't get fixed. Thanks.

OK I have released an initial version of the app I use:
https://github.com/mitchcapper/wpfdoist
Its a very rushed release but as it solves what most of you have been asking for I didn't want to wait longer. A binary file can be found at:
https://github.com/mitchcapper/wpfdoist/releases/download/1.0/WPFDoistSetup.exe

will try to do some more work on it in my (limited) free time. To zoom just use control + + or control + - :)

Hi Mitch,
I have forked your repo, let's try to improve upon it together - we both want a great Todoist, and hopefully both of our free time will allow us to make some real progress now!

I have next to no free time but I do have a lot of existing code including an outlook plugin and .net library for todoist. I will try to get what I can up in the next few weeks, and get a settings UI added shortly. Contributions obviously welcome:)

Thanks Mitch, I'll test it now and look at the code to see if I can help.

This will be my final update in the threads for new releases in the future we will just update the project page. The new version (https://github.com/mitchcapper/wpfdoist/releases/tag/1.0b2) features the options UI and should be a decent base for people to fix the scaling issues.
