Hi!

I recently got a computer with 4k resolution and have been having trouble with Potato, as shown in the attached screenshots.

Are you seeing issues in any other plces, or only squashing like that in trees? Hard to tell from the screenshot - how is the size of everything else, relatively to the display?

I left my laptop at work but all of the top bars (the buttons, the file edit view logging etc) button is very tiny. All of the screenshots Grendelgreg provided are also the same for me.

On my system, this has to do with tk::scaling guessing the scaling factor horribly wrong.

At the top of main.tcl, right after the #! line, I inserted this line and restarted Potato:

tk scaling 1.33

The value was chosen by trial and error.

This bug is problematic for windows folks, as we tend to use the executable.

If you create a file called potato.custom (no .txt file extension) in the same location as your executable, you can insert the tk scaling line in there.

good to know, though it doesn't seem to work in my case (reports as a CUSTOM file and everything)
