Problem Description:
ColdFusion Builder does not scale properly on high-resolution (high-dpi) screens such as the Dell XPS 15 4K range. The icons appear too small to use. This problem has been fixed in Eclipse Neon but has not been fixed in the standalone ColdFusion Builder application. Installing CF Builder as a plug-in within Eclipse Neon does not work either.

Steps to Reproduce:
Launch ColdFusion Builder on a high-resolution display. 4K resolution on a 15.6" laptop shows the problem.

Actual Result:
Icons and toolbars are too small to use.

Expected Result:
Icons and toolbars should scale according to Windows scaling properties.

Any Workarounds:
No workarounds.

Hi All, Can you please install ColdFusion Builder 2016 as plugin to eclipse Neon and apply update 4 and let us know if you are facing any issue ? please revert with screenshot if you are facing related to icons and toolbar if they are too small to use as mentioned in the bug comment or facing any other issue ? - Mukesh

Mukesh - please see CFB-4198222. Not only do we have icon and toolbar issues not properly scaling, but CFB cannot even open cfm or cfc files. Andy

is there any progress or status update on this/these issues? As is, CFB is unusable on our current hardware. We're making due with alternative editors but with a lack of response as to timelines here we fear we may need to make a more perm move.

If you are not going to fix it, could you at least say that as well so I don;t waste any more time checking here?

Same problem with a normal 1600x900 display. I'll post screen shots of both CFB2016 and CFB2018 (running side by side on my machine) to prove it

In CF2018, icons are not only too small but the arrow that open and close the folders are gone. Please see attachments.

I received a version bump but there are no notes as to the solution. It's been more than a year and this is your main CF tool

I have solved this problem by uninstalling ColdFusion Builder and using JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate instead. No more CFBuilder, ever.
