Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Eclipse Neon Looks Strange and Misbehaves (Ed Merks)

Sravan,

I see!  I really only want my text to be bigger, without the icons looking ugly so the option helps with that.  But I can certainly imagine with an UHD display, I might want 200% scaling, which Windows doesn't support (and effectively makes my UHD built-in monitor's high resolution useless).  But in that case, the icons probably won't look choppy and messy...

In any case, I think this relates to the splash screen issue as well.   If I add that option to the eclipse.ini, the splash screen looks good for a while, but then it looks like this:

So there's still something not quite right going on with the splash screen related to this auto scaling. 

I know from previous experience that the font scaling also causes other ugliness, e.g., the wizard icons are attached to the upper right rather than the lower right, so the banner doesn't look so nice:



Regards,
Ed

Hi Ed,

The image Scale up is related to hidpi support introduced in Eclipse M6. In M6 we supported 100% 150% and 200%. In M7 we started supporting scaling level in multiples of 25%. From the screen shot I guess you have the scaling set to 125%. So the UI is scaled to 125%. there are two ways to stop scaling

  • Set the display settings to 100% as shown below
  • Disable scaling using the flag -Dswt.enable.autoScale=false you can add this to eclipse.ini as well.


Thanks and Regards,
Sravan

Hi,

When I install the Eclipse Eierlegende Wollmilchsau for Neon M7, there
are some units with strange licenses present

Once the installation launches, the splash screen starts out nice, but
at some point it becomes pixelated like this:

After that, the state it comes up in isn't lovely.  Several technologies
feel the immediate need to prompt the user, and even to open a console.


Ignoring those problems, the IDE does not look pretty.

Notice that all the toolbar buttons are all bigger than they were in
Mars.  I.e., they're not showing in their native resolution but are
scaled up.  It looks sloppy in my opinion.  How can I get back the look
I had before?  Note that this problem occurs for all packages.

The error log is quite full of problems:

One exception of them occurs for all packages.  Why is this file
expected to exist at this location?

We can't really expect David to police all these things.   If you
contribute something to the train, please make sure you properly test
the impact of what you contribute in combination with all the other
things being contributed.  The all-in-one product makes that very easy...


Regards,
Ed
