Win.10 Home edition, Monitor resolution: 3840 x 2160, Stellarium ver.0.15.2 UI has extremely small dialog boxes and text. Tweaking config.ini doesn’t correct the problem.

Asked by Mike Neumann on 2017-03-26

I have a new 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) laptop with 16G RAM, Windows 10 Home edition.

Stellarium’s UI has extremely small dialog boxes and text. I understood that this problem had been addressed with ver.0.14, but it still exists (for me). I have experimented with changes to font size parameters in the config.ini file and have been partially successful. Altitude/Azimuth, Moon, star name fonts are okay. Constellation names are still small and all dialog boxes are still tiny.

We have a hint for a workaround in the FAQ and a request for anybody with a 4k system to develop a working patch. So far, nobody with a 4k system has contributed the relevant twenty lines (or so) of code or donated a few 4k screens to the developers.
FAQ #2734: “Common problems with version 0.14/0.15”.
