Hello,
First, thanks you for these very nice LaTeX editor.
The current scaling setting works partially.
I have maximized from the window GUI.scalling and here is what I get (full screen shot)
Hebergeur d'image

The icons on the page search / replace remain very small (bottom right) as you can see on this screenshot.

Similarly, setting syntax highlighting is unreadable as you can see in this screenshot.

Also, when opening the options window is very small and needs to be resized, which is not practical.

That's why I propose to adopt the style of the Atom code editor https://atom.io where the settings are done on whole pages and not on detached windows.

Best regards

    This is not possible (or would need a large rewrite) because the dialog is modal whereas a tab is not. Moreover, it does only address the last of your issues which can be handled much easier by making the dialog size depend on the OS magnification factor.

    The magnification factor of my OS is already 250%. But this does not allow to enlarge the icons at the bottom right of the search / replace window.
    Moreover, concerning the syntax highlighting window, it is precisely this large magnification factor that prevents the reading of the available options. The larger I enlarge and the less the text is visible as you can see here with a maximum magnification of 350%.

    On the other hand, by decreasing tthe magnification factor to 150% the text becomes only visible with a magnifying glass, but the icons of my office are no longer so.
