Windows DPI scaling causes blurry graphics unless disabled #1041
When Windows is set to use DPI scaling (in Windows 10: settings->system->display->change the size of text, apps and other items) Aseprite looks blurry. (bilinear filtered?)
I can fix this by changing the compatability settings not to apply DPI scaling:
I then have to use the GUI scaling option to make the GUI the same scale as the surrounding OS, but it then looks great:
I think the reliability of stylus input is improved by doing this too though it's somewhat subjective.
It might be possible to do this without requiring configuration by the user, as outlined in https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/windows/desktop/dn469266(v=vs.85).aspx (modifying the application manifest)
