[squeak-dev] Implicit high-dpi mode (was: The Inbox: MorphicExtras-ct.323.mcz)

Since such a transformation would entail a severe performance impact, I once thought about replacing one Etoys halo with a "scale this!" to the just scale up that specific morph with a transformation. No need to go "all in" on a global scale.

I wish we had such an "implicit high-dpi mode". The simplest solution for this might be a TransformationMorph for the entire world. Unfortunately, everything will look blurry then. Maybe we could have a "SmartTransformationCanvas" in the future that translates font sizes instead of scaling up everything, but that's not reality ... yet. If we had this at some day, disabling the #px/#pt transformations will be simple. For now, my goal is just to adjust some applications for high dpi ...

That's a pity I guess. But having units for line width/font size, curve radius and so on has its virtues.
