Anybody already tried PhpStorm on qhd displays ?


(attached is a screenshot of win7 fullHD desktop with the phpstorm layout that I prefer, ... on a dummy project)

I want (need) to change laptop,
I'm considering either macbook pro retina ( going to apple would be a first for me )
a Yoga 2 Pro, then QHD (3200x1800) ... on a 13,3" displays ...

on OSX, retina pixel doubling make it so that 2560x1600 is effectively a more crispy 1280x800 space
=> it may look all sharpy and good but it's lame for the limited usable space.
Fortunately, it's is my understanding that tools like QuickRes give you the possibility to fully use the 2560x1600 or other intermediate res.

On Windows 8.1, they've introduced an optional 200% high dpi scaling of the desktop elements and apps.

How does phpstorm behave with this ? I did not have yet the opportunity to test. Can anyone post screenshots of different setups (125%,150%, ... ) ?
May Jetbrains comment on their apps scaling under windows ?

Many thanks in advance.
