Default Using JDownloader on High DPI Monitor

Hello, I recently got a 4k monitor. I have the scaling up 200%. I have tried messing with the windows settings and various other things but JDownloader always looks blurred with blurry text and normal size, or very tiny with crisp text.
Is there a recommended way to enable High DPI support for JD?

I'm sorry but JDownloader doesn't yet support HighDPI as this requires the LookAndFeel to support HighDPI as well and also requires more recent JVM version which would break backwards compatibility and also changes in GUI parts to support scaling/layout adapting.
At the moment there is only support to customize the font size via Settings-Advanded Settings, search for font size.
Please know that the GUI DOES NOT scale!

its been years since the first report 2014ish, so from that and the response that Jiaz gave I would say no, it wont be looked at soon. Work load is too high, and they want to keep backward capability for as long as possible.

for sure, think its also originally Appwork didn't have the monitor required in order to code/test with. These days from what I can tell the main GUI coder is busy with other tasks, rarely see commits from him. With supporting HighDPI would most likely require large rewrites, time requirement would be the biggest problem (finding it).

@raztoki: 100% agree with your answer. yes, HighDPI getting more popular but this also requires major changes in GUI code and also will result in breaking backwards java compatibility.
