Subject: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark Help on UHD-Display

 

Hi.

 

i have a new laptop from HP (ENVY) with UHD Display 17.3", (Resolution 3840x2160)

 

All is fine, but Help is as it would be displayed on FHD Display, too small for this screen size (Screenshot attached).

 

Regards,

Alfred Bauer

There are known issues with running Wireshark on a HiDPI display.

 

For example:

·         https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=13079

·         https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=13877

 

You could file another bug report for the Help, although it could be interpreted as a duplicate of one of these, so maybe just add a comment along with your Help screenshot to one of those bugs instead?  You might also want to add yourself to the CC List for those bugs so you can follow their progress.
