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.

Hi Bart,
We will try to get an app we are using up shortly. I am not sure why they went the way they did rather than using a native browser control in the app, but a simple WPF wrapper around the browser control works perfectly (as it supports native zoom). Maybe next week or two.

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.

Hi Jason,

We unfortunately don't have an ETA yet. Please stay tuned for news regarding an update regarding this problem. Really sorry for the inconvenience.

There is another and longer thread on this:

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
