    Hi all i'm new to this forum, but i'm not so new to FTB Launcher. Recently i bought a new monitor, switching from an old 1080p television to an Asus 4K 28'' monitor. My problem is that now the FTB Launcher is incredibly small when i open it and it's difficult to read. There's a solution? I have tried to change windows settings to display all the things in big size instead of medium but nothing changed... Hope you have a solution for me ;)
    PS: sorry for english mistakes, but i'm italian :B

    This is how i see the launcher...

    That looks like a display scaling issue. You should be able to mouse to a corner and use the " <-> " thingy to enlarge it. I wish I could give more accurate info but my computer is broken atm.

    Yes i think so, but unfortunately i can't resize the window with the corner :/

    Many applications are not ready for DPI scaling, especially those with nonstandard GUI toolkits. Developers were used to thinking in units of pixels for a long, long time. It will take a while for that to change, and many legacy applications probably never will.

    That or lower your resolution a bit when you run Minecraft... I doubt Java could handle the graphics for a 4k monitor anyway. :D

    Java can handle 4k. Its just that prog or someone needs to setup display scaling. Ill try to get that to the launcher dev team
