PhpED running in Parallels on Mac with Retina Display

All,

I have searched this forum and other sites but haven't found any great solutions. I am running PhpED 15.0 in Parallels on my Mac with Retina display. The resolution is such that it is far too small to read. Seems like this should have been solved by now. Was wondering if anyone here has come across any elegant solutions. The best one that I have come across so far is this one: and choosing "Scaled". PhpED looks great and everything else looks massive and then I have very little space. Just wondering what others are doing.

Cheers,
Michael

I too am struggling with a similar issue. I am using a PC with 4k monitors and have chosen to keep the scaling at 100% for many other reasons outside of of phped, with the side effect being these tiny fonts in phped.

There is the ability to increase the font size within the main code editor area, but all the panes and menu controls remain tiny. In Windows 8 (probably older versions as well) there is the ability to increase a number of different Windows based font sizes independently which has solved most of my issues, except for within phped. It seems phped doesn't adhere to these font sizes correctly and continues to display tiny fonts.

I tried submitting an issue to their tech support and did receive prompt replies which was appreciated, however the problem remains. I would have to conclude that their development team isnt running 4k or 5k displays yet so they havent had to experience the challenges of staring at such a small font.

Hopefully with time, the underlying problem will be resolved. Till then, we just have to focus hard on the little text.
