I use a MacBook Pro with Retina display and I would love to see support for HiDPI graphics in order to improve the look of the app. Non-optimized apps look significantly blurry on the display. Not a major issue, of course, but worth noting.

    How would one do that?
    Is it just images and icons you have to adjust?

    Kissaki:

    This is mostly an issue of upgrading to Qt 5 and various small fixes here and there (ensuring all icons are SVG, also the ones we use programatically - ConfigDialog icons on OS X, for example).

    If you add this to the app's Info.plist it fixes the text. The images still look low-res however.

    <key>NSPrincipalClass</key>
    <string>NSApplication</string>
    <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key>
    <string>True</string>

    I can't believe this simple function has not been implemented yet.

      If it is so simple to you, please provide a pull request on github we may simply and easily merge if it fits. That would be the fastest way to get it implemented.

        If you’re talking about Darrens suggestion rather then this entire feature request, I have no idea and no possibility to test the implications of those changes - so I can not do them. And its similar for others of us.

    I'll add my voice to this feature request. I game on a Surface Pro 2 (with a second monitor) and the 10" high-dpi, 1920x1080 display makes the chat text very hard to read.

    Some method of scaling text size would be appreciated. I'm not sure if Mumble has a skin that would help--but I haven't found one.

    Created an account just so I could bump this. A scaleable or manualy set DPI would be nice. I am using 2 1080p monitors and 1 4 k display. As soon as I move mumble to my 1080p display it looks blown up or shurnk down. I have tried telling windows to ignore DPI scale for this application and that makes it look terrible. I know that I can hold control and scroll but that doesnt help with things like the button scaling. Open to Ideas.
