Hi when trying to use stencyl on a surface pro 4 the text is far to small to be usable.  It looks like the GUI is not windows scaling compatible so will be affecting most high res displays. Thanks

Stencyl uses Swing for the UI, and unfortunately it doesn't support HiDPI screens ... yet. There will finally be a fix for this in Java 9: http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/263

However, it will still take a while until Java 9 is officially released (and then some more time until Stencyl supports it, depending on how many things break with the new Java version).

Stencyl now works on Java 9+, so closing this.

For those on Linux, it seems you need to manually specify window scaling when you run Java applications.

Code: [Select]
-Dsun.java2d.uiScale=2
This can be added to the "Stencyl" launcher script with an appropriate value for your screen size.
