size of toolbar icons

Robert J. Boik
I installed miktex 2.9.5997 under the windows 10 operating system on
an acer aspire v 17 laptop (display resolution is 3840 x 2160) . The icons
in the toolbar of the emacs editor window are too small.  Does anyone know
how to increase the size of the toolbar icons?

Do you literally mean the icons or the buttons too? And are these specifically MiKTeX buttons which are not scaling or other buttons too?

Either way, welcome to 4K hell! It means that either/both of Emacs or the some MiKTeX assets are not scaled for high resolution displays. It's slowly getting better with updates to various pieces of software (Windows 10 itself included) - though it's necessary here to determine if you're dealing with a bug in MiKTeX or Emacs.

You might want to be a bit more forthcoming with information if you're after the problem being solved!

I just quickly installed latest MiKTeX (2.9.6000) with Emacs 24.5.1 mingw32 compiled (the "official" zip from gnu.org) in a Windows 10 1511 x64 VirtualBox. I installed AUCTeX 11.89 (is that how you're linking Emacs and MiKTeX, or is there another way?).

On my 4K display (3840x2160 scaled 250%), if I create a dummy LaTeX file in Emacs (I'm a Vim user, so understand that that really hurts...!), I get 5 toolbar buttons (Run LaTeX, Run Viewer, Run BibTeX, Spell check, Preview on/off) - the buttons are the same size as the other Emacs toolbar buttons and the icons, although clearly not designed for 4K displays, are the "correct" size.

So what's your experience?

Re: size of toolbar icons

Robert J. Boik
David,  Thanks for addressing my problem.

It seems that our MikTeX/AucTeX installations are identical, except that
my emacs version is 25.0.94.2.  My display is scaled 250%.  My
issues are the following: (a) the ten buttons (specify a new file name,
read an existing file, ..., search forward) in the initial emacs
window are too small; (b) the four icons (go to last folder visited,
up one level, create new folder, view menu) in the "find file" window
are much too small---they are tiny; and (c) after I open a .tex file,
the fourteen buttons (specify a new files name, ..., spell check the
document, preview on/off) in the emacs editor window are too small.

By "too small", I mean that they are much smaller than they are on my
older laptop (1600 x 900 resolution).  Issue (b) is the most troubling.

Re: Size of toolbar icons

Michael Barr
In reply to this post by Robert J. Boik
FWIW, I have had the same problem with a different program that I use as editor (Kedit) and I was able to write directly to the developer who has retired and is no longer actively supporting the program.  He replied to me that he had specified his icon sizes in terms of pixels and on a hi-res display the result is that the icons are very small.  Maybe there is some way to lower the resolution of the display.

Do you literally mean the icons or the buttons too? And are these specifically MiKTeX buttons which are not scaling or other buttons too?

Either way, welcome to 4K hell! It means that either/both of Emacs or the some MiKTeX assets are not scaled for high resolution displays. It's slowly getting better with updates to various pieces of software (Windows 10 itself included) - though it's necessary here to determine if you're dealing with a bug in MiKTeX or Emacs.

This is not exactly an earth shattering problem; however, I have
noticed that the "showdim" package no longer displays a help file when
I click on the package. It use to, so I assume that something has
changed.

Dear all,

I am a happy user of MiKTEX for some years now and first of all great
thanks to all the work!

Today I felt the urge to update my MiKTEX as it is a good habit from
time to time and then I ran into the following verification error:

When I re-executed it, everything seemed fine. But as a person who
prefers to be on the safe side: Is there any problem with the mirror?
Was some data maybe really altered?

Best wishes,
Marvin
