Summary0016101: Buttons size on high resolution screen
DescriptionWhen using scribus on a higher resolution screen, i can use Application preferences to enlarge Menus and Palettes font size
but buttons are much too small also -- see uploaded screenshot capture -- and there seem to be no way to increase buttons size so as to restore a useable size. There is a "reduce widget size" but there is no "enhance buttons size" checkbox.
TagsNo tags attached.

i guess that you should simply scale up the whole UI instead wanting settings for scaling each item in the UI...

Great when that's possible : is that a setting in scribus ? Where is it ? Or in the OS ????

if your UI (at "system level") is correctly setup for hidpi monitors, you should get the same scaling as with the other applications.

if it's not, you can use export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.5 in your .xinitrc or in a script that launches scribus.

if you try the nightly appimage, it should automatically scale (and will give you bad results if you also ahve QT_SCALE_FACTOR set).
