Notification area too small on high DPI screen   04 May 2017, 10:39

I have installed WiFi Guard on a Microsoft Surface Book, which has a high DPI display screen.

The yellow WiFi Guard notification box concerning an unrecognized device found on the LAN is tiny in size - about the size of a postage stamp. The text does not fit within the tiny box, which displays only a few letters. There is no way to resize the box. The result is that the notification is unreadable.

Can this be fixed for high DPI laptop screens?

Thanks, we'll fix it shortly and post an update here. There is another feature request for the notifications: to have a "Remind me later" button. We'll add that too.

Thanks, Andrew.

I forgot to add, clicking anywhere on that tiny notification box causes the box to disappear completely from the screen, rather than allowing editing of device Properties, etc.
