WeBuilder 2015 vs 2016 - 4K dpi aware?

Does WeBuilder 2016 have better dpi support?

I have WeBuilder 2015 and have turned on 'large icons' but they still seem a little small. I have a 4K UHD display.

It has better High-DPI support with each version but some things are still not perfect. You can install trial version of 2016 and check it out.

Thanks...I see the left/ right folder display - code and folder explorer...looks correct in 2016 vs 2015. Also View-Manage Layouts and Configure Browsers dialog box, Format-Font, and Tabs on some dialog boxes..

Is there a timetable to make the app fully compatible? Looks like I will be upgrading my registration...

Other than the icon size (which I can live with for now), is there anything else that presents a usability problem in 2016? I haven't been able to spot anything.

you probably already know this, but the text and icons in the FTP dialog box are either not centered correctly or appear very very small.

Yes, but feel free reporting the most annoying stuff - we might be missing some things.

The checkboxes in WE 2016 when Publishing Project to FTP are super tiny. THis is the most problematic one thus far. As it affects something I do on a regular basis.

In the FILE EXPLORER on the right hand side, when I right click on an image to UPLOAD FTP, the menu text is bunched up. Still usable...but easy to accidentally select something else.

The arrows by the tabs are super tiny - to the right. These are the arrows to select which tab/file to work on.Ability to set the # of tabs might be useful.
