:tools: Scheduled maintenance

Heads up! Downtime for the Forums, related to the NodeBB upgrade, is planned for Thursday, December 14, starting from 10:00 UTC.
Please make sure to finish all your posts before this time. The downtime should only last for a few minutes.

Strengthen support for high DPI screens

  • Opera supports high DPI screen is very bad, fonts and icons too small, for example, my screen is 11.6 inches with a resolution of 1920 * 1080. There is your installation package and Baidu Pinyin input method of conflict, an open installation Baidu input method crash, indifferent, the installer did not respond, I hope to improve it. System is Win8.1 x64, the computer is Samsung 700T1C, thank you.

  • 1920x1080 is a standard resolution for the larger widescreen monitors, the higher the resolution, the smaller everything is, because the higher the resolution more is fit in on the screen, opera supports that resolution because right now im on Opera using 1920x1080 on a 24 inch monitor. On a 12 inch monitor everything will look tiny, not just Opera, but everything you run on it, if you were on a tablet or something, youd need to use your fingers to Zoom it. are you saying Opera needs some sort of Zoom function ? Edit----> Ok that is a tablet, you should be able to Zoom it, I dont really see a problem with Opera on that.

    Not necessarily.
    It depends on DPI percentage values as well. Opera is working on better support.
    In Windows' default scaling of windows the UI gets scaled up, but is blurry.
    Opera has integrated some scaling of their own. It's really crisp, but doesn't scale correctly yet. That's why it is switched of for 200% dpi.
    As soon as it's ready Opera will have the most awesome interface and thus has a unique feature among browsers again. :)

    This is encouraging to hear. I can't wait (well... I can wait and I have to wait but it excites me to hear this).

  • I can't wait
    I know how you feel. I do have a 13" QHD+ screen @ 200%.
    Having seen how crystal clear everything could be (hidpi-flag in 20 if I recall correctly; it wasn't really usable since sizing was just way off what lead to it being disabled for now) makes waiting patiently even harder ;)

  • I turned back to Opera 18 which has better DPI options, I suggest everyone to do the same until Opera releases a better well-functioning hiDPI option

  • What Happened to the HiDPI flag?
    I was using that, and though the tabs could have been a bit smaller, it was working more or less fine on my surface.

  • removed by Google since HiDPI support got switched on by default in Chrome now.
    However, Opera isn't just ready yet for switching it on by default. I guess it should happen soon though.

    Ouch... Opera has to be in sync with the Chromium project a little better to keep on the bleeding edge of engine updates.

  • i have a problem disabling this option that seems to have enabled by itself

    and i have the option to control the hidpi support disabled
