I believe the V5 Forum Theme (REAPER 5) takes care of that issue automatically (resizing images). Bottom left of forum you can select which theme to use...

Apparently forum page width depends on browser (no horizontal scrolling here on Firefox, but I see it affects iOS/Safari and probably other browsers).
Thanks for the edit. I’m using Firefox too (Windows).

Holy cow, how did I not find this before? I've been using an older MBP with a 4k external monitor and this theme looks SO much sharper than the default. THANKS !!!!

Default 2.5 years after initial HiDPI support and 5 years of 4K-monitor era

Yeah, after 2.5 years since implementing the initial HiDPI support and 5 years of the 4K-monitor era, it would certainly make sense for HiDPI support in Reaper to be finally completed.

“Constant Evolution” ;-)

Hi I read the whole thread and I think I missed the solution to my problem.
I just got a 4K monitor and Reaper looked horribly blurry or incredibly tiny. Tried the HighDPI thing in preferences. It made it a bit better but still blurry.
Tried this HiDPI theme, looks awesome, but it's HUGE.
Is there a way to scale it down (the scaling in preference does not work as others already said) or I have to accept to work with a blurry program for 8 hours a day?

Me sad

what does "bigger than 4K" mean?
4K doesn't define a size. Not even pixel density. Just pixels quantity.

He likely has big monitor with 4K pixel number. In such case 200%/retina themes doesn't help because neither 100% or 200% scale are proper for such monitor.

@Rubrik
check out this theme.https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=219391
It is designed to cover needs of big monitors users as well as retina displays.
Regardless you like it or not, you can read an article about what and why happens to Reaper in such resolutions how themes might cope with it and why most of themes cannot scale well (mentioned theme is an exception).

Also you can try development builds. While they are improvements for current major version, already contain improvements in HighDPI department to be deployed in Realer v6 I think. As I saw recently, most themes should scale properly if you disable global_scale in a theme and use DPIscale in preferences instead. Keep in mind that scaling will result in some blurrines, especially up-scaling. Also it's a bit advanced subject so you might not feel comfy at beginning .

But density would describe it well. More density in QHD than FHD and even denser in 4K. Density is proportional to quantity, but with the additional information of the given quantity in space (volume).

Density is proportional to quantity only if size is const.
4K defines nothing but number of pixels.
And if you were read previous posts, you would know the question about 4K is irrelevant.

But yeah.. maybe I'm too neat-picky
