About HiDPI support

Thanks for the developers that create the great software, but it seems that the HiDPI support is not built in with the application. When I use it on Windows 10 with a 4K display, all the icons are quite small and also some other UI elements need to polish for the HiDPI display.

Thanks for the great contribution on this great software.

I have the same problem on a 3200*1800 resolution screen.
The UI / Icons are all really small. I added the requested screenshot.
Ps I love the program so I really miss being able to use it properly.

At the moment, neither XnView nor MP are scaling their icons.

As a workaround, you can do this yourself:

This it not too complicated, but you're right
- an automatic function would be more user-friendliy
- bitmap-based icons lose quality when scaling them up, in contrast to vector-based formats

I'm using 2560x1440 resolution with 125% scale DPI. With Large Icons feature xnviewmp began easier to use, thank you. But some of other UI elements and fonts size need tweak for better usability with hidpi. Please keep work with this direction in future releases.
