Wing HTML help has font too large

Hi All,Just started using Wing 6.1 Personal, and I notice the title problem. This is Mint 19 VM at rez 2880 x 1800.  The usual problem at this resolution is font too small but for some reason this case is the opposite. Right clicking and reducing to minimum font size doesn't get there. I would like to see two or three smaller font size choices (unless I'm missing something?). Screen capture available if you want it.thanks,GB

Note that Wing 7 now does a considerably better job with high DPI displays.

I am currently using wing personal 7.2.7; I have a new laptop with 4k resolution, namely 3840×2160 , and the IDE shows fine; but I would prefer to use a lower resolution, namely the standard 1980×1080 , because otherwise I cannot use the attached screen (the difference in resolution makes the attached screen useless...); when I switch resolution, wing fails to understand the new DPI, and all fonts are double the correct size; to solve this I have to halve the sizes of the fonts; just FYI

Just in case, did you enable HiDPI setting in QT? see https://stackoverflow.com/a/36058882/...

Yes., Wing has hiDPI turned on but the Qt support for this is a mess and I think we've layered some hacks on top of that to get things working right. We're upgrading to a newer Qt in Wing 8 (but not current or next alpha release) which may help with this eventually.

We'll try to replicate and fix this.  My guess is the DPI is reported high and the code we're using to display help is doubly compensating for that, probably because Qt isn't consistent in what it's doing).  A work-around would be to view the docs on our website for now.One thing that would be useful if you're willing is to see if you also have problems like this with the release from http://wingware.com/wingide/early Thanks for reporting this problem!
