Support High Resolution Monitors

Post by RetiredEngineer » Tue Feb 24, 2015 4:32 pm

I remain impressed with the craftsmanship in Search Everything. However, there are some text panes which use hard-coded fonts that display tiny and get difficult to read on the monitor I use now ...

HP 23-inch w2338h LCD Monitor
1920x1080p
0.265 mm pixel pitch

... and which may require cumbersome use of the Windows-7 Magnifier when I upgrade later this year to ...

HP 27-inch ZR2740w LED Monitor
2560x1440p
0.233 mm dot pitch

Therefore, I would appreciate your devoting some time to upgrading hard-coded text panes to display larger fonts on high-resolution monitors. This would definitely benefit many in your user community.

Everything uses the default GUI font and is DPI aware.

You can customize the default GUI font size by changing your display DPI.

If you do not wish to change your display DPI, you can set custom fonts in Everything.

For example:
  • Exit Everything completely.
  • Open your %APPDATA%\Everything\Everything.ini
  • Change the following lines

    Code: Select all

    result_list_font_size=
    search_edit_font_size=
    status_bar_font_size=
    header_font_size=
    
    to:

    Code: Select all

    result_list_font_size=20
    search_edit_font_size=20
    status_bar_font_size=20
    header_font_size=20
    
    Where 20 is the new font size.
  • Save changes to your Everything.ini and restart Everything.
