Rawtherapee scaling 4k monitor

(Nik) #1

I am working on a 4k monitor, I increased font size for layout in preferences, but icons are super tiny almost impossible to use.
Hi w can I properly scale the whole interface to look good on 4k monitor?


Hi @niccoc1603 and welcome!

What OS are you on?
If my memory is not too rusty, Linux Mint in the Cinnamon flavour can handle that kind of problem best.

Have fun!

Oh, in my experience with Adobe apps they don’t care about win scaling options.
I’ll give it a try :slight_smile:


Hi, can you test this theme on your 4k monitor and post a full uncroped screenshot, how it looks like, please.

Remove the file extensions .txt and copy it into the Theme folder inside the Rawtherapee folder. Select the theme in preferences.

A lot better!


Thanks for testing.

Can you test the theme with this developemnt build and post a screenshot from the file browser and editor, please. The test theme is designed for latest dev version.


No installer included. Extract the folder “Rawtherapee_rawcacorrection_iterate” to e.g. your Desktop, copy the test theme to the theme folder and run “rawtherapee.exe” inside this folder.
Cache and settings are saved into “%localappdata%\Rawtherapee_rawcacorrection_iterate”. It leaves your current installation untouched.

Works fine here (Germany)

This is the direkt link to the file, perhaps this works:

nope, can you upload it to dropbox or gdrive?


Sorry, I’ve no account there but you can download a dev version with installer from here: https://keybase.pub/gaaned92/RTW64NightlyBuilds/RawTherapee_dev_5.4-795-g6f6cdd113_WinVista_64.zip

here you go

issue I see: the overlay mouse tips are flashing like crazy.


The crazy flashing mouse tips happen also in RawTherapee_dev_5.4-795-g6f6cdd113_WinVista_64.


Thanks for testing. It’s still not perfect and the theme needs some finetuning.
The flashing tooltip is a known issue of the new GTK+3.24. I hope it can be fixed soon.

plz can you help me, why do I see all DNG files purple? In stable version too


I’m sorry, but I can’t help you by this problem.
I suggest to create a bug report at: https://github.com/Beep6581/RawTherapee/issues
and provide as many information as possible like:

  1. How did you create the DNG file
  2. Example file

PS: What’s the font size you’ve set for the screenshots? (I guess it’s 8?)

I haven’t touched font size.
Win 10 scaling 120%


I mean the font size in RT preferences. Can you check, please?
Please try with Win 10 scaling 100% and RT font size 9.
