    We are using the TextControl ( in an WinForms application used by more then 40.000 employees.
    Now we are migrating the application to WPF.
    We realize a problem on HD Displays, where standard build-in dialogs like Search and Replace, Spellchecker, Font Format dialogs etc. are too small - maybe because standard MVC dialogs are still used.


    What about the Telerik RichTextBox control?
    Are all Build-In dialogs scaling on HD-Displays correctly?

    I want to write the background to my posting/question.
    In Germany we have an ISO norm for the size of text on a display.
    So the text size should be for example at least 2.2 milimeter on a display.
    On HD display the text on menus or build-in dialogs are much smaller.

    We are looking for a RTF control where we can on demind resize the text- and image size od all (!) controls, menues and build-in dialogs.

    Hello Dirk,

    Thank you for your interest in Telerik UI for WPF.

    Currently, we support features that allow you to dynamically change the FontSize and FontFamily properties of all components in the application for the VisualStudio2013 theme. The FontSize is in pixel unit which is converted to DIP. By default, most of our themes have default size 12 inches ( As compared to 2.2 mm which is at about 8 pixels). You can also learn more about this in our blog post  "Introducing Dynamic Fonts with Office2013 and VisualStudio2013 Themes in Telerik UI for WPF and Silverlight"

    I hope this helps. Please, let me know if I'm missing something or if you need some further assistance.  

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
