Description, steps to reproduce:

I have trouble with my eyesight, and as a result, have quite large system fonts (16pt). As a result, the PlayOnLinux UI is cut off at the bottom, icon text runs into adjacent icons, and the whole UI is generally unusable as a result. I can't seem to resize the windows either (which would fix this problem).

I'm on Arch, using KDE Plasma 5.10.5.

I can confirm this issue as it also occurrs with HiDPI displays. It's frustrating because if someone hadn't chosen to make the PlayOnLinux UI windows non-resizeable, it wouldn't be an issue. As it is, you cannot see the labels or buttons for all the requestors that pop up during an install. If you're lucky, you can guess, or "click-through" by hitting ENTER and hoping all the defaults are good enough. Otherwise, some applications are just plain uninstallable.


The example below is on KDE5/Plasma on a 4k Screen. The rest of the OS, DE, and system applications are fine with the HiDPI screen and a large majority of third party applications are also fine. This is most certainly a PlayOnLinux issue.


Here's a minor example. It get's worse as you try an actual install.
