Hi James,

you can ask mouser for a beta version which should hopefuly address high dpi issues...
mouser's post

27
you can send me the beta on my email, i'm not a user of SC but i could try ;)

28
Keep up the good work Mouser

We believe in U !  :P

29
Ok I am making some progress on improving SC for use on high-dpi monitors; options look a lot more readable as does text.
Need to do a little more tweaking though for some oddities, and need to scale up the button images.

Hope you are making some progress on FARR too !

Microsoft will push an update to windows 10 soon that promises to fix some of the high DPI scaling issues, that might fix the issues for users that are up to date with their windows installations. More info here

Thanks for the info skajfes !

31
That's great news !

Good job mouser  :Thmbsup:

Should be on top of your list to make FARR more compatible with new computers...
1) update FARR to make it DPI aware (http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=43275.0), more and more computers are high-dpi and FARR is not running well on those...
2) update FARR to make it windows 10 universal app aware...
what I do for now is to create .ahk files which run windows apps protocols, for instance I have a Messenger.ahk file :
Run fb-messenger://


A fix to make...

1) fix the command-line limit on setuservar (http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=17639.0)


New feature
1) make FARR installable in a dropbox/othercloud folder so it could be shared across multiple computers
the idea is to share : aliases, plugins, icons, skins, sounds, searched folders, heuristics, hotkeys,...
and to keep : launch history, troubleshooting log, ... separate
today when i make a change, i have to make it on 4 other computers
(http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=42729.0)
except when i change a small thing in an alias that loads with filecontents

Dreams
1) new internal browser
2) new plugin engine
3) unicode

from you mouser :
The other major thing I am considering for FARR 3 is a revamp of the plugin engine.

I was thinking of adding native python plugin support, and making that the new recommended plugin language going forward.

The consequences would be:
1. Easier to write plugins -- no more need to build a dll, just a single-file standard python script file (.py) will work fine.  And I will simplify the API to use fewer and less finicky functions.
2. Old plugins would still be supported, but the new python plugin engine will be the recommended approach for anything but plugins that really need native dll speed.
3. The largest drawback would be that it would probably add a megabyte or so to the executable size of FARR, and I have to check what it would do to memory use.  This is my only real concern.  I'll post more info about this after some experimentation.

This is very interesting... (Directory opus plugin system is quite amazing...)

Ok I will endeavor to get out an update this week, and get back into the swing of more regular updates. Promise! :up:
Sounds great !!!!

no need to apologize mouser, it's just that I would like to keep your innerfire for FARR alive :-*
because FARR is a MUCH needed software and IMHO your best software

Don't hesitate to ask me when you need some beta testing ;)

If you go into the font override options tab and set the flag to use your custom font overrides and then change the fonts to something like Arial, is there any improvement or is it still blurry?
no improvement, of course if you take a pixel font it will look sharp because there is no anti-aliasing to begin with...

If you exit FARR and then create a new shortcut to FARR but right-click on the shortcut property and in compatibility tab tell it to disable scaling, any improvement?
Seems like the font is much nicer, looks retina to me, BUT, the other elements are not scaled properly, some tweaking can be done... like increasing the editbox height, result height, ... but maybe there are some tweaking to do on your side ?

your screen is 267ppi !

i think we can call it a retina display ;) (regular screen is about 100ppi)

Hi skajfes,

no trouble with the theme.

As you can see on this commented capture, the fonts in FARR are not high DPI aware ("not retina")

You can see the difference (4 times more pixels...) between the FARR windows Title (drawn by windows 10) and the result list.

On the capture, behind FARR, you can see Directory Opus, which is now fully high dpi aware (since dopus 12)
see dopus doc

Having a fully high-DPI aware application does not come that easy, i know FARR is THE best software in the universe but nonetheless mouser will have some work to do  :D

40
awesome ;)

Tell me if you need me to try some beta version  :D :Thmbsup:

41
one of my computer is QHD+ that is 3600*1800, so it's running at 200% dpi and FARR is pretty ugly... only the windows title is retina.

Is there a way to make the other fonts look nice ?

Find And Run Robot / [Feature request] FARR retina (high-dpi) aware ?
« on: December 13, 2016, 02:36 AM »
Hi mouser,

any chance you could make FARR "retina display" aware ?

I don't know how it works... but i would be more than enough if you could make the result list retina.

Cheers, Nitrix

« on: September 08, 2016, 11:20 AM »
Nice, pretty much the same for me, I'm a web developper, and use that to switch among 300 different customers... use it all day

Btw is there some way to log which commands get actually executed from an alias after user variables have been resolved?
I'm not sure i get your question... if you want to log when you switch from one project to another, you could do it yourself by adding a third command using ;;;scripttolog.ahk "switch to A"
