That global scaling didn’t work as expected — many elements weren’t properly scaled, otherwise we wouldn’t be awaiting true HiDPI support so eagerly.

At integer scaling ratios, I’m interested exactly in pixel doubling with no blur. Blur is only inevitable at fractional ratios when bilinear or bicubic interpolation is used (nearest neighbour results in distortion at fractional ratios), and such lossy blurry interpolation should only be used at fractional ratios.

My point is that Reaper should have a universal built-in scaling mechanism that would make it 100% future-proof in terms of not being limited by a specific maximum ratio such as 200% and flexible in terms of specific scaling ratios supported. And now that Reaper apparently has the infrastructure needed for true HiDPI support, such scaling is probably much more possible.
