Q: I launch PDF Studio on my 4k monitor, the icons are not scaled correctly. How can I solve this issue?
A: There’s a scaling issue with some Linux distros (Majaro) and therefore the icons are not scaled correctly
To solve this issue, you can follow the instructions below:
1. Check that the scaling factor of xorg is set as desired:
xdpyinfo | grep dots
My system returned 92dpi despite the scaling factor being set to ‘2x’ in GNOME.
2. Use xrandr to set the DPI in xorg properly:
xrandr –dpi 144
You may need to restart PDF Studio to observe any changes on the icon size.
3. To make this change persistent, add the xrandr command to your xinit file:
echo “xrandr –dpi 206;” >> /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
