Problems with DPI scaling on HiDPI screens

Postby wigster » Fri Feb 27, 2015 9:56 am

Hi,

Running doPDF 8.1 on a Surface Pro 3 on Windows 8.1 x64.

The screen of the Surface is high resolution, so it runs at 150% DPI scaling. The main doPDF window handles this very well, with the fonts all high resolution. In particular the "Save PDF file" requester which appears when "Create" is clicked is OK.

However, when I print to the doPDF printer, for example from Firefox, the very same "Save PDF File" requester is now not DPI aware: the fonts are blurry. You must be pointing in your code to some old version of it.

Would you mind fixing this? Thanks!

Would it be possible to post a screenshot with the blurry version?

Below is a screenshot with two doPDF windows. The left one seems scaled more of less properly and appears when the doPDF application is launched. The right one is not scaled and appears when the doPDF printer is selected from Firefox/IE and printed to.

Let me know if you need more detail.
