Good news for anyone using a high resolution computer to use Helix Editor!
I had previously been making do using a manifest.exe file, but I still had an issue where my mouse clicks would register a centimeter or so above where I was clicking.
Instead, try opening the file location of the Helix.exe program.
Right click on Helix.exe and click properties.
Select the "Compatibility" tab.
Check the "Override high DPI scaling behavior" option, and select "System" in the dropbox below.
Click "Apply" or "OK" and exit.
Now the Editor should scale properly and work perfectly. I no longer have any issues with the mouse clicks and it's not ant-size.
(This is on a Dell XPS 15 with 4k resolution with the scaling in the system display settings set to 200%)
@John K., are you still running the Dell XPS 15 4K at a Screen Layout Scaling of 200% when you launch the latest HX Edit? And, you no longer use the Properties > Compatibility > Override?Yeah the new editor scales just fine on my 4k Dell XPS 15 as well.
The old editor was a bit of a struggle and I had to adjust some app properties or use an external manifest files to scale it properly.
