Hello all,


Using playonlinux for ages but just registered as a forum member.

The issue is about I can't find the option ''install a not listed program'' (or something as I'm using the Dutch language) when using a 4k monitor. Though you can resize the main window, you can't resize the other window. Also it is barely readable. I included a screenshot about what I mean (resized on fullhd/1080p)

Unfortunately PlayOnLinux doesn't work well with font scaling.  This has been a problem for a long time.

You may have to lower your screen resolution for PlayOnLinux to display properly.  Most games do not even support 4K resolutions anyways.

You can try Phoenicis PlayOnLinux 5 (https://github.com/PlayOnLinux/POL-POM-5). Its GUI is scalable so that should fix your issue (I don't expect anyone to solve this for PoL4).
