POP Peeper “DPI fixes” fixes

July 12, 2016

In POP Peeper v4.2, POP Peeper became “dpi aware” for the purpose of making text more clear in recent OS’s (Windows 8.1 & 10).  The side effect of this, which most affected people with very high DPI (> 150%), is that it made graphical elements very small, such as the toolbars.

The next version of POP Peeper will not only address the concerns with the size of the graphics, but will correct some other related issues, as well.  For example, you will be able to right-click on the header of the message list (and account list) and select, “Use optimal column sizes” which will take into account not only your DPI but also your current font.  You will also be prompted to auto-resize the columns when you change the font.

Since the graphics would need to scale based on the DPI, there are some new graphics, primarily for the icons in the message list.  When new graphics were used, a similar design and color scheme were used to keep it consistent with previous versions of POP Peeper.

I am particularly looking for people with high-resolution/DPI monitors to test this, so if you’re interested, let me know.

Below are 2 screenshots from Windows 10.  The first uses 125% DPI and the second uses 200% DPI.
