Subject [jira] [Commented] (NETBEANS-765) HiDPI resolution of 3840x2160 results in tiny icons and text fields that are too small for the text within

Eirik Bakke commented on NETBEANS-765:
--------------------------------------

I've now used NetBeans for about three weeks on a Windows-based HiDPI screen (2560x1440, tried
with the OS-level scaling setting set to both 150% and 200%). This actually works quite well!
There are plenty of small bugs, especially when connecting and disconnecting an external non-HiDPI
monitor, or when moving windows between HiDPI and non-HiDPI screens, but I could usually figure
out ways to work around these.

It's essential to run the IDE on a recent JDK version, though. I used OpenJDK 10.0.0.1+9.
I also tried to use Java 8; in the latter case NetBeans became much less usable, with a mix
of tiny and regular-sized controls, controls that don't fit in their dialog box, and such.

I also observed that even even the latest version of Microsoft Office--which we should expect
to be the "gold standard" of Windows applications--also has a few similar HiDPI-related bugs.
