Is there an easy way to support using high res displays on a global basis in PF? I know I can change the font size for individual panes but it would be nice to have a global way of varying both the UI and the window contents.

    Hi Al,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    Could you please give us more details on your use-case? macOS allows setting the display scaling in System Preferences -> Display, would that work for you?

    Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jordan,

    Unfortunately the OS level control doesn’t work, as I use multiple displays at different resolutions. I only use PF on the 4k one, which is why I asked 2019-06-10he question. Adobe CC and a number of other software packages have application level controls for varying the size of the text. Straight up on 4k, the type is too small to make out well.

    If this isn’t available yet it should be a suggestion for future versions.

    Cheers,

    Alastair

    Hi Jordan,

    I noticed you can change the size of the font under Vire>Options; unfortunately this seems to be linked only to the folder being viewed and changes back once you switch to a different folder. Do you know if there’s anyway to make this for the entire window ‘pane’ and independent of the folder viewed?
    Cheers,

    Alastair

    Hi Al,

    Could you please try using View -> Show View Options and check "All Windows" in the View Options window?
