Running Windows 8.1 in Parallels on a Retina MBP. Windows reports desktop resolution at 3402 x 2118 which makes the initial Cryptomator screen very small and difficult to read in comparison to the rest of the document.

Attaching a full-res screen here so that you get the idea. Wish I could pre-label these for you folks; definitely an "enhancement" and not a bug.

Thank you for reporting. I will try to make Cryptomator recognize retina displays. On OS X it's working?

Yeah, scale in 10.10.2 (Yosemite) looks appropriate.

Might be an upstream issue in JavaFX, in which case we have to wait for a fix.

We could at least make the window resizable. Will look into that in the future.

Just received a user report that this same issue also occurs on Ubuntu (on a Retina MBP).

A thought regarding my previous comment: Resizing the window would not help. The ui elements (icons, borders, text, etc.) would still be small and just contain more empty space. I think we really have to wait until this is fixed in JavaFX.

Will be fixed in Java 9. Currently no backport seems to be planned, i.e. we need to switch to Java 9 in order to fix this. This will probably not happen before Q4 2017.

Confirming the same issue when using Ubuntu (17.04) on a Dell laptop with a 3840x2160 screen

Any update on this?

EDIT: Sorry. Just read overheadhunter's reply. Looking forward to the HIDPI version. Cryptomator is such a great tool.

Any news on this?

We do have successfully built Cryptomator with JDK 9. I can upload a beta .jar version, but you'll need to install Java 9 yourself, as we can not provide exe/deb/rpm installers just yet.

@overheadhunter Sorry, but the download will don't run on my system. Java9 is installed. I am not a Java Coder so ican't help you.
I will observe this issue.

Thank you very much. Your beta .jar works fine on my Lenovo laptop with Win10 pro and 150% screen setting.

@overheadhunter The behavior of the beta version is the same as the old one for me, everything is still minuscule. Here's a Gnome Tweak Tool window for comparison.

My bad if this is obvious, but is there a ticket open for HiDPI on Linux? - since the Linux label was removed on this one.

@overheadhunter overheadhunter added os:linux and removed os:windows labels Jun 17, 2018

Just curious: are there any actions planned for this Cryptomator issue on Linux?
If not: are there any alternatives besides Cryptomator for syncing data encrypted between Android and Linux?

Hi - I just excitedly installed it from the PPA on Ubuntu 18.04 - still broken for me - any ideas?

Currently testing around.

  • Macbook Pro mid-2015 running Elementary OS Juno - works perfectly out of the box
  • Thinkpad X1 Yoga running Fedora 29 - not scaled properly

Both of course have HiDPI displays.

I'm thinking there might be some environmental variable or Xorg setting I have to set.

@matmaxgeds @DougBeney seems like we need more details on what desktop environments, ui settings, etc you're using... Maybe it's time to open a new issue adressing the issue for the specific setup that causes the problem.

@matmaxgeds I think I found your solution! Worked on the Thinkpad.

Run this in the terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2

What I am wondering is what will happen on the KDE desktop.

Thanks - I confirmed that my scaling-factor is currently 0 so am hopeful, will test and report back this evening as in the middle of something so can't logout/in of Gnome at the moment

Hi - now tested, this tweak works for me (and hasn't broken anything else yet!) - thanks for the tip
