High-DPI does not look good.

Whenever I ask about customising the UI font size of any programme, most of the time I got the reply like \”Change the system DPI settings\”. But most of the time, I do not achieve the look I want with that.
I am using 150% system DPI settings, and the Krita UI looks like these. Even when I have enabled the high-DPI support, the main menu/dialogue font sizes remains small and the icons are unnecessarily large. I know requesting a feature for a free programme is shameless thing, but can they a simple feature to set the font size as the user wants, not just use some predefined values?

I’m afraid there’s just nothing we can do, except allow users to enable or disable hidpi support. The actual implementation is part of the development platform, qT, and we cannot tweak or change how it works.
