Let user decide the scaling factor

I’d really like an option to set the scaling factor in the app settings.
Currently I use GNOME on 4K display with 100% scale and 1.25 text scaling factor, and Insync GUI is almost unusable: everything is too small.

Some apps built on Qt, like Telegram Desktop, allow users to set scaling factor themselves.
Would be nice to have that feature here too.

Thanks!

Hi @pcm720!

Do you mind checking this article for me re: HiDPI settings and let me know if the scaling factor doesn’t work on your end? :slight_smile:

Thank you! :slight_smile:

Hi!
Thanks, QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1 made the window way too big, but setting QT_SCALE_FACTOR to non-integer 1.5 made the window look perfect!


It would be great to have an option to set these variables in GUI and apply them on launch.
I know I can just add “QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.5” to the launch script (/usr/bin/insync), but editing files managed by package manager is not a good idea

@pcm720 Thanks, glad it worked for you! I do apologise for the extra bit of work, though. :frowning: I’ll make sure to forward this to our Linux team. :slight_smile:
