I upgraded to Jabref 5.2 today (downloaded and installed the DEB file on Ubuntu 20.04), from Jabref 5.0. I have a hidpi display and previously adjusted the screen scaling according to the installation documentation:
This worked fine with JabRef 5.0, but with 5.2 the
-Dglass.gtk.uiScale setting is ignored and everything appears very small, irrespective of the value set for uiScale.
My current configuration file at
[Application] app.mainmodule=org.jabref/org.jabref.gui.JabRefLauncher [JavaOptions] -Dglass.gtk.uiScale=1.5
I have not tried the standalone version as I would like to avoid manually creating all the application startup shortcuts and the DEB does this automatically. Any ideas?
Edit: the standalone version also does not work. I was assuming it is distributed as a jar file but it is not, otherwise I could have tried to launch the option on the command line à la
java -Dglass.gtk.uiScale=1.5 -jar JabRef.jar
