Using TeXstudio, the icons and menus are almost invisible on my 4k display (3840 x 2160 pixels, 28").

Is it possible to adjust the graphics so that TeXstudio could be usable on my 4k display?

    Have you seen the posting LaTeX Editors/IDEs? You could try out the ones that work on your operating system. (Not all editors run on all operating systems...) – Mico May 28 '16 at 20:17

    The operating system you are using does the normal scaling. My personal experience is that Windows doesn't quite handle the scaling as good as some other OS's. – Runar May 28 '16 at 20:22

    Recommendations are off topic on any SE site, though. – Alenanno May 28 '16 at 20:32

    Have you tried to adjust the icon size in TeXstudio preferences? With "show advanced options" you can find this under "gui scaling". – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz May 28 '16 at 20:54

    @K.Mulier As you might have seen the question was closed as a duplicate. However if you would be willing to edit your question to be less broad and focus on "Texstudio symbols are to small in 4K", I think it would definitely be of value for further people with this problem and I will certainly vote to reopen it. – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz May 29 '16 at 0:15

Thankfully TeXstudio itself has a solution for this problem. In its preferences (with show advanced options active), there is a menu for gui scaling where you can easily adjust the size of the icons.

    @K.Muller a certain other member of this community corrected me once regarding my assuming another user's gender. So, having made the mistake myself, I pass on the good advice. – A Feldman May 29 '16 at 10:07
