Hi Anita,

Can you be more precise about the fontsize? It looks not too wrong to me.

But as these help file come from the website, I think we should find out why this does not work in the website,
and probably add info to the css there.

how does a link like:


look in your browser on your HiDPI display ?

Sorry Richard, I cannot really be more precise than the screenshot shows. Compare the font size of the window title to the size of the help content. It's like a 5pt font on a normal (non-HiDPI screen) = pretty much unreadable.

The help looks fine in my web browser. (I assume because the browser takes care of things?) But the web view (?) in the Processing alg dialog does not scale things up :(
