Bug report #11337

Attribute Table does not show correctly on high resolution (2880x1620) monitors

The rows in the attribute table are truncated in height, when using a large screen resolution 2880x1620). It is not possibly to read the data, without first extending the height of a specific row by manually mouse interaction of each row, dragging the row to a large height.

Image of attribute table with too litle height:

As a temporary workaround I use this Python code to raise the row height:

from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication, QTableView

attrTables = [d for d in QApplication.instance().allWidgets() if d.objectName() u'QgsAttributeTableDialog' or d.objectName() u'AttributeTable' ]
for rowid in range(1632):
attrTables0.findChildren(QTableView)[0].setRowHeight( i, 40 )
i += 1

Hi all, after a looong research over my problem I finally found my answer!!! This workaround works great, it solves the small icon problem and the too small height of rows in tables.
So this is my two cents of contribution, follow this link and read the instruction: http://www.danantonielli.com/adobe-app-scaling-on-high-dpi-displays-fix/

This is not the ideal solution but it should make it usable again. I hope in the future this problem will be corrected directly in QGIS.
My configuration is: laptop DELL Precision M3800 64bit; OS Win 8.1; monitor res 3200x1800; QGIS 2.6.1
