Temporarily need more screen space with ? Just scale to 100% instead of 200%:


Applause for that! When shipping Phosh on Nexus 7 I was always hesitant about how set scaling optimally for all usecases (since 7 inch screen is kinda between 100 and 200%). This made my day.

@agx @purism What is the scale measured against? i.e., why is 200% considered ideal (default)?

@lwriemen @agx @purism
100% means one logical pixel mapped to one physical pixel.
As the L5 has a high (282) DPI screen, things would be pretty tiny this way. With 200%, everything is more detailed. Software that's aware of it might e.g. use a 64px icon instead of a 32px icon.

@danielst @agx @purism thanks. Makes a programmer. A non-technical user would probably prefer to just scale off of "normal" view. (Probably with huge, big, normal, small, tiny resolutions.)
