This is how menu looks on my Windows laptop with resolution 1920x1080 and scaling slider set between Smaller and Larger (I couldn't figure out exact percentage, I think it is 125%, or I just increased default font size (it is 11 in my case)). It doesn't look right to me ... IMHO, icons should be resized and centered.

Thanks.

Hello Novo,

I can confirm this. It only happens on Windows. GTK & X11 backend is not affected.

I added this on redmine http://www.ultimatepp.org/redmine/issues/1341. I think it should definitely be fix before 2/2015 release.

Sicnerely,
Klugier

Icons can only be resized 2x, otherwise it looks too ugly.

Will check visuals (centering).

Thanks! IMHO, width of the vertical bar should depend on icon's size, and icons should be centered vertically. At this time vertical bar is just too wide.

Thank a lot! It also worth mentioning that one should call SetUHDEnabled() to make this work. It took me a lot of time to figure that out. IMHO, UHD mode should be enabled by default. Without UHD enabled GUI looks just terrible (including all examples and demos).

Well, that is windows default for apps not aware about UHD...

I am undecided about this. CtrlLib is ready for UHD, but client application might be not...
