MonoDevelop with 166 dpi

MonoDevelop has a few problems with rendering on my 166 dpi screen, you can see them on the these screenshots:
http://i.imgur.com/Yt48cXd.png - 96 dpi
http://i.imgur.com/dusFVH2.png - 166 dpi

Build status (that bar with "Build Successful") does not scale at all - the font is the same size on 96 dpi and 166 dpi - too small on high dpi screens.

Welcome page with Xamarin news - only partially scaled - "Did you know?" thing is scaled, everything else is not.

Search bar on the top right - just look at the 166 dpi screenshot and you'll see.

Another thing that doesn't scale properly - file tabs font.

An example of file tabs font not scaling

DiffusionEquation.cs, Program.cs - the font size is the same on both DPIs.

These should be fixed now.
Comment 4 Constantine 2015-03-24 11:52:52 UTC
Which version of Monodevelop will feature this fix? Also, will it have an option to set the DPI number or it pulls the value from the desktop environment? Thanks!

I believe it's fixed in 5.8 and 5.9. There may be pieces that I've missed, so feel free to file a new bug report if there are specific things that I miss.

It's pulling the DPI number from the desktop, so you shouldn't need to set anything. But if you're using multiple monitors with different DPIs there may be issues, I haven't tested that yet.
