Using Silo on a 4k screen

Hello Silo community,

I just installed Silo (latest version) on my mobile studio pro, which has a 4k screen.
Silo's GUI displays incredibly small, to a point that it's extremely difficult to use the software comfortably.

Is there someway to boost it's size to x2 or x4 without having to build my own custom GUI?

I don't think there is. I had the same problem but had to resort to increasing the Windows font size. This helps but it also introduces a rare issue with other software whereby text, buttons, or other, is outside the bounds of a dialog box. I ran into that with GhostTown; a 3ds max plugin.

Thanks, I'll try your suggestion, as I'll try changing/lowering my display resolution on the tablet to see if something works.
4K seems to be an issue for numerous programs I work with (ex: Modo). I find it a little surprising to say the least, as it would seem that digital artist don't need the extra resolution that these new screens have to offer... almost makes me regret my investment in the Wacom mobile studio pro.

4k and something else

The numeric editor entry lines are too small to show the numbers.
The brush editor rams all the brushes onto a single line. The buttons are on top of each other!!
Text size is a small problem....
Windows 10 on surface notebook and mobile studio pro.
It's been that way for months. Luckily I have an older version of Silo.2.2 32bit.
Perhaps it's just the 64bit version.
